NUMBER 1 MAGEU NATIONAL WINNER
In 2018, I was the national winner of the Number 1 Mageu #ArtAndSoul packaging design competition. We were required to design a new banana packaging carton.
My peers at university inspired me. Being on an arts campus, we had an array of interesting individuals who expressed themselves through their physical appearances. I wanted to show the beautiful jazz and soul that youth culture in South Africa has. My design is a celebration of people.
I also won the Durban University of Technology design award and a 1 month internship to The Hardy Boys – a Durban based full-service creative and advertising agency. I won a cash prize of R10 000 as well as an iPad and iPencil, which I use daily for illustration commissions.
