Paul Ward was born into the Johannesburg south side, spending his first years throwing sand in kids' eyes and stealing Fizz Pops on the playground. After relocating to Cape Town, Paul attended Rondebosch Boys High school. Here he found himself an outlet for his boisterous spontaneity. Studying Art and Design as a formal discipline, and with the guidance of Kevin Jenkins and Andrew Putter, he flourished as a creative thinker, bullying his pencils, no longer his peers. During his five years at Rondebosch, he was rarely without a camera in hand. By the end of high school his ambition of wearing a suit everyday, and having a corner window office on the top floor of a CBD skyscraper seemed like a bad dream. His first stop on the path of decided creativity lead him to Vega The School of Brand Innovation, where he completed a degree in Creative Brand Communications, specialising in Art Direction and Design.
