The first featured student in our 2012 Graduate Series is Jana de Klerk in her final year of Art Direction at the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography.
Originally from Limpopo, Jana moved to Stellenbosch after school to pursue applied design. She has a strong interest in the digital and mobile industry and a love for good, clever and elegant ideas. We asked what she loves about her chosen field and what her plans are for after graduation. She replied, “I love how the advertising industry is constantly changing and the endless opportunities that the digital world brings us. I’m currently interning at The Jupiter Drawing Room and I would like to do something a little more permanent with them after I graduate in December this year.”
This is a selection from her portfolio. The first project was designed to promote the new biography of famed fashion designer, Valentino. Jana says, “Colourful thread was used to highlight the important aspects of Valentino’s life. The brochure gives the viewer insight to his rather intricate life; where money and fame creates twisted drama with the love of his life.”
