At Align-Ed we have partnered with d-zine hub since 2002. Colleen has the unique ability to take concepts and visions from my head and turn them into amazing graphics and visual images. Her uncanny ability to ‘see’ and interpret my vision plays a vital role in the very fabric of the stories and content that is a part of the Align-Ed brands and product offering.
Qualified with a BA in Communication, Psychology and Linguistics, Colleen is passionate about “converting concepts into reality and reflecting a brand’s image with consistency and clarity in all media output”. She has spent almost 30 years consulting in and designing, amongst other media, the presentation and packaging for marketing and training material. She has experience with international organisations, and has previously been involved in the design, production liaison and packaging of tri-lingual collateral and handout material for their international summits held in Africa and South America. She has also previously managed the design, layout, production and delivery of another’s quarterly bi-lingual publications.
Closer to home, Colleen has had long-term working relationships with a number of regular clients. Among others, her portfolio includes Tsogo Sun’s Learning and Development Department, Align-Ed Network, Mecosa and Decisions Gifts. Her contribution to each client differs, ranging from website development and maintenance to DTP, product design and project management. Recently, she has been involved as the brand custodian of CI, Media and Messaging for the Align-Ed Foundation, a collaborative partner involved in the activities for the Nelson Mandela Centenary Year.
Having discovered the means, ease and new methods to express her creative side, Colleen enjoys her online design ‘playground’ where she has published books on Amazon and dabbles in d-zine hub’s and her own online stores, offering her designs either as downloadables or printed onto various media (e.g. mugs, books, t-shirts, canvas) to the global online market.
