Professional Graphic Designer: I didn’t choose Graphic Design it chose me. Since I was a child I always played around in paint and as a teenager in programs such as Print Shop Pro. After matriculation I studied print production and design and so my creative journey began. From the get go I loved it and my dream of becoming an actress was long gone. I graduated in 2010 from Prestige Academy and started to work at a print shop to gain experience in printing. In July 2011 I started working at Discover South Africa and whre I gained a great deal of experience. I had to design A2 fold into DL maps, banners, pvc panels for expo stalls, and flyers. In October 2014 I started working at Discount Traveler where I designed an Online Travel Magazine, In 2016 they promoted me the editor of the Traveler Mag. I have also developed a love for teaching, for sharing my passion, my knowledge, skills and expertise with those that want to become professional graphic designers.
