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   Corporate   Identities,   Packaging   Design and Logo Development. I   pride   myself   in   offering   outstanding   service   to   my   clients   -   providing   exceptionally   fast   turn-around   times.   To   meet your   demand   for   high   quality   print   material,   I   have   set   up   an   excellent   relationship   with   a   print   company      who   offers both   short   run   digital   print   as   well   as   long   run   litho   solutions.   Depending   on   the   nature   of   the   job   and   my   work   load, turn around times generally vary from one or two days to just over a week.
