Period 07/1999 – 05/2000
I joined iAfrica.com with no web design experience having previously worked only in print design. I gained on the job learning and experience in working with web pages and graphics and learnt about the differences between digital branding and offline branding. The position at iAfrica.com exposed me to Ogilvy via their brand team who were working on the iafrica account as the agency responsible for developing the iafrica brand in above the line media. I moved from client to agency side after my first year at iafrica which was a huge step into agency life for me.
