I’ve literally started writing this introductory page ten times before realising that I was just overthinking it, so here is what I’d like you to know about me in a nutshell…
My name is Kris and I am a Journalist-turned-Senior Editorial/Layout designer & Production Manager living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. After hours, I freelance under my creative brand, Kris513:creative, with the latest addition to the brand being this blog. Through the COAL personal blog, I aim to share useful design & production tips as well as the weekly challenges and learning curves that I have experienced and am experiencing in my life and career thus far – no holds barred.
I live on tea, scrambled eggs and the little bit of oxygen given off by my tiny desk plant. Every day, I feel like a creative sitting on a ledge waiting to fall or fly.
These are the COAL chronicles.
