As a graphic designer I know that beauty can be found in the smallest of things, and I approach my work in that way. Each project has its own unique personality, and if treated in the correct way, it will show its true colours.
In my 4 years of studies I have learned to accept constructive criticism and to push my limits to the fullest. Keep on learning, keep on exploring new things and new places, try and try again until you can master your task. That is the way to succeed. But also to remember that a good night’s sleep is sometimes needed to get those creative juices flowing again!
After working for 3 years, I can say my abilities are far-ranging. I have gained more confidence in myself and know I can comfortably take on a project single-handedly, as well as work in a team.
The most important lesson I’ve learned is that the greatest results come with passion for your work -
That is when the most beautiful designs come to life.

Design Director
My position here was in the specific direction of Retail, where I was in charge of designing all collateral for various shopping centres.
This still included many design elements e.g. concept development, logo design, brand identity as well as lots of advertising in magazines, on posters and Billboards. Being the only graphic designer in the company, I worked closely with the Creative Director, advising on the best design solutions and working on strategic concepts to capture the correct essence of the Brand. Up to now I’ve worked with 13 different Shopping Centres, who have provided me with a limitless variety of design possibilities.
