Vicki Atkinson

Freelance Art Director

Cape Town, South Africa
I am a seasoned creative thinker with 18 years of professional experience working in Advertising. I have a strategic, conceptual and user-centered approach to my work. I love it when a campaign is driven by a strong concept, a clear message and when my work makes a difference. I’m deadline driven and budget focused.
