Lindie Fourie - Pretorius

Graphic Designer

Cape Town, South Africa
I love design and photography. To be able to express feelings and communicate messages through images, colours and type is something amazing no other job can offer. I believe that not only should we meet a client’s needs, but exceed their expectations and have fun while doing so! Attention to detail is a must.

Au Pair
My experience in the USA has taught me a lot about people, other cultures, other places and myself.
I enjoyed seeing the world, meeting interesting people, improving my English and being exposed to other languages. I’ve learned a great deal about working in close relationship with people, adapting to new surroundings, time management, and being organized and independent. I’m excited to apply what I’ve learned abroad in my new work place.
