I am organized, flexible, ambitious, self-motivated and down-to-earth with an overactive imagination and creative drive. I have the ability to conceptualise and think visually and my experience aided me to work well alone as well as within a team. I am very capable to meet deadlines in a fast paced environment.
In 2001 I graduated with a Higher Diploma in Visual Arts from 5th Dimension College of Visual Arts. In 2002 I did an internship with the Provincial Government of Road and Transport, Gauteng where I assisted in the design and implementation of the intranet. Looking for more challenges, I moved to QPS Productions as a junior designer where my tasks ranged from logo, business cards and signage to in-house repro and finishing. Wanting to expand my knowledge I joined i-Grade Web Based Solutions in 2004 as their in-house designer responsible for front-end design for websites and user interface design on software solutions as well as marketing material. After two years doing primarily digital design I wanted to explore the corporate trait of design and joined Mongoose Communications & Design as their Senior Designer and Production Manager. My main responsibilities included editorial, logo & corporate identities, websites and digital design and the repro and finishing thereof. In 2007 I decided to try my hand at freelancing and haven’t looked back since. In 2014 I joined Caxton & CTP Publishers and Printers as a contractor with the Kormorant. Responsibilities included the design of adverts in a fast paced environment, the layout and editorial of the Get It Magazine for Hartbeespoort, Brits & Rustenburg, online / digital advertising and social media marketing. I was runner up and received a Highly Commended certificate in the Caxton Awards for Designer of the Year, 2015.
