About me

I'm Sally Torr, a graphic designer, illustrator, creative storyteller and environmentalist who recently graduated from Stellenbosch University. I am a hard-working individual who enjoys a challenge and who strives for the very best in everything I do. My innovative and pragmatic approach to design enables me to be a positive and enthusiastic team-player who is motivated to make a difference.​ I strongly believe that it is design's role to contribute to the betterment of society, as it is our responsibility as designers to bring about change in the world. Therefore, my passion lies where design and ocean / environmental conservation intersect. It is the collaboration with other fields of interest where design has true potential to create change.
