BigCityLife has over the past eleven years become the digital go-to-guide for everything design orientated and lifestyle focused in our BigCityLife. We are all about taking design to the people. Promoting the artisan while inspiring our readers to live their best, most fabulous life. Our current readership of an astonishing 3 million a month over our various platforms, speaks for itself.
We are 100% independent, run by like minded souls who have a passion for everything our South African cities have to offer.
BigCityLife was imagined and created eleven years ago by Creative Director and Commercial Photographer Ingrid Irsigler. A designer who has her feet firmly on the ground and her aesthetic in Wonderland. A true-to-life marketing leader, who has over twenty years experince in creating and designing award winning, time proven successful advertising, marking and branding campaigns for leading corporate clients across the globe.
Her practice is grounded in engaging concept driven design and bold human centered advertising strategies. An ideology which Ingrid has weaved through the very web of BigCityLife.
Seeking to recapture the sense of discovery that most of us lose when we grow up, Ingrid conceptualised and launched this popular company. With a strong personal conviction that human stories are what drive engagement Ingrid ensures that the editorial content is intelligent and provocative, as well as fun and accessible for all readers.
Three years ago, Ingrid was joined by her long time friend and marketing powerhouse Philippa Rose-Tite who has spent the last twenty years building brands and sales for various companies while achieving her MBA and honing her formidable writing skills.
