Passionate Freelance Graphic Designer: Print & Digital, plus Photographer, based in Johannesburg, Verity-Alexis Green./

Working with SME’s to build meaningful identities and brands to grow their business. Connecting your target audience with your brand; whether it is to attract new customers or create good habits with existing clients through campaigns designed for your company/brand. Ardently creating covert beauty in life remains my passion. First Love & my reason for living! Not only do I create but I am a business entrepreneur at heart. Would have to say that business & creating go hand in hand, oil & water but with the correct spice, it can conjure up a real treat! Enhancing life with my arts & nourishing a thirst for the ever seeking enthusiast creature – which depravity encapsulates at the day end. Only a decadent creation can recapture lost youth in one’s mind & eye.
