The members of the Graphic Design team at UKZN are all qualified, having obtained a diploma or degree in Graphic Design with Photography being one of the course subjects. All designers are able to conceptualise and design in an appropriate style, look and feel to suite the requirements of the client in relation to the target audience. In additional to the ability of each designer to perform a wide variety of design tasks, each has a special area of expertise which compliments each other and which adds value to teamwork.
