Why hello there!

I am a graphic and web designer and am currently studying UX design.

Thus far in my career, I have had the privilege of working with well-known brands such as AB InBev, Accenture, BBC, Sorbet, MalaMala Game Reserve (top reserve in South Africa), Deutsche Bank, DMK to name a few. While working in these high pressure environments, I have expanded on a variety of experience and problem solving abilities in both hard and soft skills.

I previously focused on Graphic Design, but quickly found myself branching and expanding my skillset to include User Interface design (UI) and Web Development by designing and then creating WordPress websites. This included changing the base HTML & CSS where required. I believe myself to be a fast learner due to the fact that I enjoy challenges and problem solving.

Through my Graphic and Web Design experience, I am proficient in the Adobe Suite such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, Dreamweaver and now Adobe XD. I am also proficient in Microsoft PowerPoint, WordPress, Mailchimp and SurveyMonkey.

I graduated at Rhodes University in 2012, with a 4 year degree in Bachelor of Journalism (which counts as honours). I did a triple major in Psychology, Art History, and Journalism (in which I specialised in Communication Design).
