I am 22 years old and live in Paarl, South Africa. I attended Paarl Girls High School and matriculated in 2006. After school I studied Graphic Design at Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography. During these three years I completed subjects such as Art History, Marketing, Illustration, Drawing, Computer Practise and Photography. In my third year I chose to major in Graphic Design. At the end of 2009 I graduated with a BA degree in Applied Design. In 2010 I started a new course, Web Development, at CTU Training Solutions in Stellenbosch and obtained my Graphic Design & Introduction to Web Development certificate. I'm a very social person, love to meet new people, and always up for a challenge. I'm fascinated with architecture and love to look at packaging designs. My favorite design projects are ones that involve creating corporate identities, packaging design, cd covers, brochure & magazine designs etc. I'm well trained in the Adobe CS5 programmes that includes; Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Fireworks and Dreamweaver. I would love to be able to travel and work as a graphic designer - it would be an awesome way to learn and gain experience. I've just travelled to Europe and enjoyed it so much, would love to be able to find work there. My first language is Afrikaans, but I'm also fluent in English.
