Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Marianna Hadzigeorgiou

Senior digital art director

Johannesburg, South Africa
I've been in the digital industry since 1999 and have a love for all things related to design.
In my most recent experience, I have come to experience some level of integrated campaigns in the industry and look forward to immersing myself in some more projects of this nature in the future.
However, no matter the project, what truly matters for me at the end of the day, is putting out projects that I a proud to call my own.
I've worked with companies such as Wired Multimedia, Ogilvy and also tried my hand at going off on my own with the well-known- Digiguru. I am now back in agency life and would love to sink my teeth into another fashion brand.

I love the entire creative process. The process and creativity around coming up with an idea. The art direction. The design. The motion design. The shoots. Everything. I love everything about design. It's as simple as that.
