Art Director/Graphic Designer
The way I see it... Creativity might not solve everything, but it sure as hell makes life more interesting!
Freelance Strategic Art Director, Graphic Designer, creative thinker, and creative consultant. Available in-house or as an external supplier. Working very closely with some brilliant freelance copywriters, strategists and RFP designers for freelance work on complete campaigns from strategy all the way to final print product. Not too bad for a girl out of Brakkies. Sometimes Brakpan can produce more than just dodgy cars and in-breeding (I can only say that 'cause I hail from the Pan), I've heard every joke - try me :)
I love meeting new people, and hope to do this via work and travels. It is through the meeting of these interesting people that I would like to develop an outlook on the world which will allow creativity to expand. Passion for campaign creative strategy, brand activation and all round creative ideas that make the world think differently about design and advertising.
