Christo Maritz
Owner & Strategic Director

As owner and head strategist, Christo leads our team of experts to deliver simple, clear and thoughtful creative solutions.

With his passion for branding and design combined with his passion for people, he has guided Infestation to become one of the leading communication and design agencies in Cape Town. With more than 20 years of experience and a balanced approach, he often advises clients on business strategy and how to leverage the power of design at an executive level.

Christo is one of the founding members of the Cape Town Design Network (CTDN), an independent network of local design disciplines that advocates the use of design as a tool in solving social and economic challenges. He is also one of the founders of Cape Town’s annual Open Design festival, and an industry advisor for the Cape Peninsula University of Technology Design Faculty.

Christo is proud of many things he has achieved in his life, but the ones that stand out for him are firstly his daughters Leah and Anya, and the fact that he designed his high school’s badge while still in high school.
