Bianca Luyt

Senior Graphic Designer

Cape Town, South Africa
I love to learn, explore and appreciate. To me there is nothing like a clean sheet of paper waiting to be used as a platform for creativity. This is why I chose to be a designer. A problem solver through creativity. Sometimes it's good to have fun with your designs - it is the fuel for your creativity and ideas.
