I   have   been   in   the   advertising   and   design   industry   for   over   30   years   and   began   my   career   in   1976   when I   left   South   Africa   to   study   Industrial   Design   at   the   Ealing   College   of   Higher   Education   in   London. During   this   time   I   developed   an   interest   in   Graphic   Design   and   studied   both   courses   simultaneously.   I then   left   after   two   and   a   half   years,   having   been   offered   a   position   as   an   assistant Art   Director   with   J. Walter Thompson (JWT) back in Cape Town. I   remained   with   them   for   over   five   years,   working   in   all   aspects   of   the   print   media,   conceptualising and    directing    television    commercials,    creating    packaging    design    and    below-the    line    material.    I resigned   in   1983   after   being   offered   a   position   at   Berry   Bush   de   Villiers   &   di   Bella   (BBDD)   as   an Art   Director   and   was made   a   Director   of   the   company   in   1985.   During   1989   BBDD   established   a   specialised   company   -   Kite   Consultancy   -   to handle   all   aspects   of   below-the-line   design.   He   ran   the   company   for   four   years   as   Managing   Director   and   Design Head. In   April   1994   I   resigned   from   BBDD   and   continued   doing   design   work   on   a   freelance   basis.   In   May   1995   I   moved   to Knysna   where   I   established   myself   as   a   successful   a   designer,   specialising   in   Logo   Design,   Menu   and   Winelist   Design and Label Design. My clients include some of the most well known businesses in Knysna and George. I am now based in Sedgefield, conveniently situated between George and Knysna.
