Location: Cape Town

Work: I’ve been a graphic or creative designer for over 30 years (eek). My first job as a designer involved doing page layouts, by hand… with waxed bromide sheets! Those days are, thankfully, a thing of the past and today finds me creating anything from logos to websites and everything in between.

What do you love most about your job / what you do?
I love the diversity of work. No two jobs are ever the same.

What’s great about working with Fresh?
Great team, friendly and super organised.

Any interesting (not necessarily work-related) skills, talents or facts about you? 
Once upon a time, I won a design competition at the Cape Town Design Indaba. The brief involved creating a product/item that functioned in a unique way. (The product I designed was a solar chargeable light that emits soundwaves (inaudible to humans) that repel mosquitoes).

Favourite food?
Biltong, not really food but a snack 😉

Favourite book?
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

Best place you’ve ever visited?
