Our Team

Tony van Rijn


Tony has been with Creative by Design for almost 20 years. Prior to this, he worked as a design consultant for a renovation company, which allowed him to see the big picture in renovation projects and understand construction methods.

He really enjoys meeting his clients, getting to know them, and understanding their needs. Tony’s passion is helping people get organised, and he loves to exceed his clients’ expectations from concept to completion.

When Tony is not designing, you’ll find him playing golf, planning a holiday, or spending time with others.

Client Feedback

Creative by Design provided such a great customer experience. It started with Tony who listened to our needs and designed exactly what we needed in our cabinetry. His customer service was fantastic. We felt valued and listened to. Installation was also done to a very high standard. Tamaz and his helper were very efficient. We loved our experience with Tony and Creative by Design and will be using them again in the very near future. Thank you Tony and Creative by Design.

We had a wonderful experience with the team at Creative by Design. We wanted to get a wall bed installed with cabinetry in a very specific style to suit the room, Rosana and Greg were great at understanding our requirements and designing a solution to suit. We are extremely happy with the end result, and the attention to detail by Creative by Design (in the build and design) is really impressive.

We could not have been more happy with the work by Creative. When Tony came to our house, he was able to come up with space saving designs we had not thought of. Tamaz did an outstanding job. He worked quietly and quickly and his attention to detail was faultless. Both Tony and Tamaz worked hard to ensure the job was done just as Lockdown was occurring. We are so happy in our new, freshly designed apartment. Thank you!!

Twice I have engaged Creative by Design to build/install built-in wardrobes, drawers and shelving, the last time was eleven years ago. Creative by Design has done a great job on both occasions. A little while ago there was an accident and a drawer got damaged (my fault). Not only did Creative by Design make a new drawer and shelving parts, both the labor costs and the parts were provided free of charge. And they even delivered the new parts to my front door without charge. At all times Rosana, Matthew and the rest of the team were helpful, positive and constructive. Such great spirit, can-do attitude and awesome customer service. Thank you to you all 🙂 !! David.
