Hi! I'm a freelance Graphic Designer and VA based in Cape Town, South Africa. My areas of expertise fall within the fashion, events and marketing industries, and this is where, I believe, my experience truly sets me apart.
My corporate background means I’m stickler for process and never miss a deadline. Having worked for myself for many years I am able to work autonomously and can be trusted to get the job done. I am resourceful, with a positive, can-do attitude and constantly seek to improve my skill set.
Working with Chantelle was such a pleasure!
I am so glad that I awarded her my project. Throughout the whole process Chantelle showed impeccable professionalism, skill and knowledge while putting together my Tech packs. Her work far exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be coming back to Chantelle for future designs and projects. Not only was she efficient and her work of a very high standard but she was friendly and enjoyable to work with.
If you are looking at hiring Chantelle you will not be disappointed.
Again, Thank you for all of your help and great work.
I look forward to working with you again.
As a VA, I believe we should all be spending more time following our passions. Living a fulfilled life by doing more of the things we want to do, and less of what we have to do.
All those tedious, mundane tasks are so important to any business, yet the owners’ time would be better spent on the other parts of the business they are most passionate about.
I can get what needs to be done, done. Providing you with more of that most valuable thing. Your time.
