About me

I triple-majored in Communication Design, Art History & Visual Culture at Rhodes University. During this time, I co-created an online magazine called Archetype Online My creative approach — no matter the medium—is almost always stripping the idea to it’s bare minimum and finding the points of tension behind the idea. I do several iterations on each point and usually end up refining the one that resonates most with my idea of composition and balance. Allowing the design to reach clarity.
