I’ve built my career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in small companies where I was not just the graphic designer but also technology whiz, bookkeeper and marketing guru. I’m not only used to wearing many hats, I sincerely enjoy it; I thrive in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same.
In addition to being flexible and responsive, I’m also a go-getter. I love submerging myself in a project and making sure every line, every letter is correct and has maximum impact - not just for the client, but for me. I believe in applying this same level of attention to detail to tasks as visible as designing the materials for online marketing and as mundane as making sure the copier never runs out of paper.
General Design Delights
I love to create new designs and layouts and have been lucky enough to work with a number of different clients. I have designed logos, letterheads, brochures, business cards, tshirts, caps, buffs, promotional items, pens, books, manuals, envelopes, folders etc. I am lucky enough to have clients who enjoy working with me, and who return often. In addition to this work, I also work at Radiowave.
August 2015 - Ongoing
I am the Account Manager at the coast for Radiowave, Namibia's number one hit radio station. My role includes marketing, sales, account managing and an understanding of my client's marketing needs.
Project Manager & Graphic Designer
May 2010 – July 2015
I was the sole Namibian representative of RBJ Trust, a publishing company, in Swakopmund. I produced the Film Production Directory Namibia which contains information & guidelines of filming in Namibia, information about Namibia and detailed contact listings of general and production services providers, as well as listings of all experienced crew in Namibia. My role was to liaise with clients, co-ordinate and facilitate marketing, sell advertising space in the directory to those involved in the film industry, design individual ads as well as the layout of the directory, oversee the printing process, as well as manage all the accounts and international distribution of the directory to film festivals. I produced five editions of the Film Production Directory. To view the 2011-2015 editions online, please click here. I was also responsible for the design and function on the RBJ Trust website.
Mondesa Youth Opportunities
Reading Program Teacher & Graphic Designer
June 2010 – November 2014
Mondesa Youth Opportunities is an after school education program taking in underprivileged scholars who show leadership and scholastic skills in their schools, to be given a nourishing lunch as well as extra Maths, English, Reading, Music and Computer skills. For four years I taught as the Reading teacher for Grades 7 and 8. I prepared the lessons and while teaching the children, I learnt something new each day working with such enthusiastic, clever learners. I do all the graphic design work for MYO pro bono and together we have designed a new logo, newsletters, letterheads, email signatures, hats, tshirts, brochures, their website and more. Visit their website here.
I could go on...but seriously,
that's more than 5 years ago!

BA in Media, Communication and Culture
I spent three great years learning about Design, Marketing, Communication and honing my English. It was a wonderful start to all the learning that has followed 'in the real world'.
