Currently based in Cape Town

I am 23 year old independent creative based in Cape Town, South Africa. I believe in creating eye-catching, conceptual work that makes an impression and has a strong presence and visual voice. I believe in experimentation and testing myself as a creative. I began my career in digital design in an e-commerce environment, moved through various freelance and in-office creative pursuits, and have now founded my own creative business, Juice.
