who am I?
Hi, I'm Lize-Marie Swan and I am an Art Director. I'm also an illustrator, designer and a conceptual randomizer. Since joining the DA (Designer Anonymous), I started to get this uncontrollable urge to dream up random messeges (Sometimes they actually makes sense....wierd!). I must confess my secret love affair with a dip pen and ink. Yeah, I know, it’s ............black! Before I joined DA, I was randomly attracted to colour, words and well.......mmmm other stuff. Some of these stuff you can view right here. Enjoy.
No Seriously! More usefull stuff about me - I’m from South Africa. I grew up in a small mining town near Johannesburg. There a saying that goes - “to be interesting, you have to be interested.” Ya, curiousity kills the cat - I love cats. I love learning about people and cultures beyond my surroundings too. In 2006 I got my Bachelors of Arts degree in Visual Studies at the University of Pretoria. Along with my studies I also studied some marketing, business management, psychology and film theory courses. In 2010 I got my Graphic Design diploma at F.A.D.A. (Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture) at the University of Johannesburg. And then the words follow - copywriting certificate at AAA School of Advertising. Now, I have some colours, words and well.........mmmm other stuff. Perfect!
