Graphic designer by trade and qualification but web designer; UI/UX designer; social media and digital marketer; creative director and overall your go-to for any form of design.
I have 13 years of experience under my belt, gracious I sound old! But seriously I’m not, well maybe a slightly old soul but still a young and kicking 35 year old designer, wife and Mum.
In the days of old I have been trained in traditional graphic design and can design anything that needs printing from a wedding invitation to a billboard.
As the time wore on however so did my career and I moved into the digital space. I worked for an app design and development agency for 5 years and am proficient in UI/UX design for apps, web design as well as digital publishing.
I then joined the world of social and digital marketing but still in the design sphere working for an agency in the digital space for 5 years. I focused on social media marketing and web design.
Moving on to present day, I joined the corporate world and joined a mining companies head office. I oversaw all the marketing needs for the CEO; the company as a whole as well as the Foundation side. Working on all the design work from print media; video compilations and editing; social media marketing; large format printing etc.
I am proficient in Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premier Pro, After Effects and XD. Also including the Microsoft Suite.
From all of the above I can safely and very comfortably say I am a very well rounded designer and still practice all of the above forms of design in my day to day life.
I graduated with a Higher National Diploma from the university of Johannesburg and have achieved an online diploma in Social Media Marketing via Shaw Academy.
