Graham Wiles aka Urb-ski was born in Durban, South Africa in 1988 and attended the Durban University of Technology from 2008, obtaining a National Diploma in visual communication/graphic design in 2010.
He is currently registered as a full-time student in the Graphic Design BTech program and will graduate at the end of 2011. Graham enjoys below-the-line graphic design and has a particular interest in illustration, typography, packaging and photography. He is a versatile young designer who enjoys brand and network building. His style incorporates attention to detail whether he is using clean vectors or illustrating in his trademark loose style.
As part of his BTech study, Graham is working on a series of paper toys based on South African culture (Folk tales, myths, stereotypes etc). In order to promote his work and spread the love of paper toy making, Graham conducts paper toy workshops. His upcoming workshops will be held at St Benedicts’ School in Pinetown. Based on one dieline, each group of about 50 students will create a custom paper toy based on one of two concepts. When I Grow up… & My Favourite Pastime… Follow the link for info on these.
