Welcome to my online portfolio. Feel free to navigate and contact me for any issue about commissioned work.
My passion and enthusiasm for graphic design began during my formative academic years at university and have continued throughout my professional working career.
In the past four years, I have had the opportunity to work with major brands which include; Toyota, Compal, ESSO, DStv, TAAG, Savanna, Castle Beer, Cristal, BP and BLUE.
I have also had the opportunity to work with international clients from America and Angola.
I strive constantly to improve my knowledge in design and to learn new skills. I am proficient in all computer design software and can produce and generate great design visuals from start to finish. I have the necessary expertise to adapt to the ever changing enviroment of graphic design and advertising. I exert myself to produce work to a high quality standard, ensuring that my work meets the clients needs and that all parties involved are happy.
My main ambition is to work with well-known and established clients and to build up a successful portfolio.
