I was born and raised in Durban, South Africa. Graduating from Vega School with a BA in Creative Brand Communications, winning Best Student Portfolio in the final year. I started freelancing from early on, working for a few small local and international brands. Slowing building a passion for branding and hand lettering. In 2016, I pursued an MA in typography at the Type and Media course at the Royal Acadamy of Art The Hague in the Netherlands. My graduation project Veld was close to home, a typeface family designed for large scale use, inspired by the sign painted vernacular of South Africa.
