  • My name is Natheefah and I am currently a freelance graphic designer.
    I have 12 years experience in the design industry as both a freelancer, creative arts teacher and company-employed designer.
    I am creative, flexible, able to work well under pressure and seek to be as innovative and resourceful within any given job. I enjoy design and the possibility of using my skills to bring a vision or concept to life. I’m very comfortable designing to a certain brand standard / concept and aligning artwork with a corporate identity and brand presence that has been created for it.
    My experience includes, but is not limited to the ability to conceptualize and communicate ideas, visuals and graphics that are specific to a client’s needs and requirements. I’m able to market ideas, concepts, visualisation and apply critical thinking. This includes experience in creating marketing campaigns for social media as well as marketing material across the board, from inception until delivery.
    In addition I have varied and vast experience in the application of graphic design theory to design and create varied layouts, visuals, communication items, promotional material and branding materials for small and large organisations and individuals. Items that include but are not limited to: business cards, certificates, place cards, invitations, letterheads, directional signage, application of logo to clothing, leaflets, pamphlets, booklets, posters, brochures, cards, banners, signage, promotional items, photographic layouts, infographics and document layouts and digital marketing material.
