About me

 

Focused on unique brands & people, I am a graphic designer and photographer by trade. I value the purpose behind brands and communicating this purpose through mindful, minimalist design with a quirky touch. From photography and styling to writing impactful copy, I believe that every project is as unique as the individuals behind it and needs to be treated as such. I believe in doing good, sharing, celebrating and encouraging creativity. Since moving from Cape Town, South Africa, I have worked full-time for a financial services company in Edinburgh (as a graphic designer) and, after moving to London, have worked as a freelancer for a number of companies including Mulberry and Topshop. When not working in contract roles I work from home on client work and photography projects whenever possible.

Education

Diploma in Graphic Design and Art Direction

Red and Yellow

Jan 2007 - Dec 2009
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • I completed 3 year diploma in graphic design and art direction. Our first year was spent focusing on typography, concept, illustration and learning the basics of the Creative Suite. Following that, we developed advertisements, working with the marketers and copywriters, presented our brand strategies to actual companies, learned more about the practicalities of the industry, basic Flash, HTML and CSS, Adobe Creative Suite and how to effectively communicate ideas in a visually pleasing manner suited for a specific target market. We were encouraged to enter competitions and to work on actual existing briefs such as wine packaging and the Exclusive Books bag re-design. After 3 years I had a hardcover, bound portfolio of my best pieces and felt confident in going out into the world as a qualified and inspired graphic designer.
