I am Dale van Moerkerken

Designer and Developer.

DVM About Image

I am Dale van Moerkerken and my passion is within the multimedia realm. My goal is to build long term relationships with clients and not once off experiences. I have pride in the work that I offer and deal with every job with the same amount of passion and care that is deserved. My offering is to provide professional and consistent services. I don’t claim to know everything about web design or development, but I do know how to problem solve. If theres a challenge I'll take it on and if its broken, I'll fix it, there’s always a way.


I graduated in 2013 and went straight into website design and development for a starting up Online Marketing Company in Johannesburg. I worked remotely from Durban.The company grew from 5 staff to 50 within 5 years. In 2018 I moved to a company called TNNG in Durban so that I could have a more hands on approach with a team and clients. In 2019 I decided to start my own freelance company because I felt that I could utalize my time better and I felt that I have something more to offer to clients that agencies were allowing. I am motivated and know how to keep to a schedule. I work very well with clients and teams despite working at home. Im outgoing and social but also dont need other people to motivate me.
