My Experience:

Innovative solutions
to boost your creative projects

I am front-end web developer who has successfully developed and managed multiple websites, both national and international brands such as South African Airways, Fox International Channels (Fox Africa & Nat Geo Africa) to the likes of Brand South Africa and SANRAL.

I also worked on an e-commerce web-based application briefed, in by BCX, an internal corporate gifting online store for their employees. This was a 1st for me and my previous employer. The list goes on...

During my time at thebar., asked me to manage social media accounts for a few brands and I successfully did this though implementing what I had learned during my online course studies. Obtained a Digital Marketing certificate from Shaw Academy where I was exposed to social media buying, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Remarketing though the implementation of “pixels”, the use of Google Analytics to help with reporting on various metrics.

Due to the nature of my work as a web developer, I was asked if I could design. I couldn’t. I then decided to teach myself, through the power of YouTube and other resources. I have designed things such as business cards, leaflets, posters, banners, logos, etc. This has also lead me to wanting to study graphic/digital design or UX/UI designing. I have an intermediate proficiency level on the use of Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
