A guy I used to know

When I first met Gary Steyn, it seemed as though we were the answer to each others prayers. Dream Builders SA needed a designer and I needed a change. Working at DBI, I found much joy alongside some of the most kind and memorable people such as Patrick Coetzee (founder), Gary Steyn, Martin Chappen, Amanda Engelbrecht, and Mandy and Yoli from Zakiya Communications. One day, during a quiet time I decided to illustrate this picture of Gary from a photograph. Not long after I joined DBI, Gary left. For the first time I was on my own without a director. Prior to DBI, I had spent many years at Periscope Advertising and Design under Brett Simons (director). In both these jobs I was pretty much a solo designer overseeing design from start to finish.
