Anna and Isaac have exchanged continents and will soon expand their designer experience to almost intergalactic!
Isaac is a strategic graphic designer, who’s vast skill set derives from the diverse projects he has been involved in. These vary from advertising, digital, front end website and application design, brand identity development as well as packaging design.
Anna graduated from the St. Petersburg Art and Industry Academy named after A. Stieglitz, specialising in Graphic Design. Her work has been repeatedly celebrated at international festivals, and in 2014, the treasured “point” of the prestigious Red Dot prize was added to the awards for one of its own projects.
According to Anna clarity and simplicity are one of the main criteria in design. The project can be non-standard, creative, impressive and aesthetically beautiful, but what use is it if it cannot solve the client’s business problems?
“Stratcom’s humble beginnings from a desk in the kitchen 21 years ago and to embrace 6 continents and 7 leading regional specialist offices under the alliance is an inspiration to other entrepreneurs in Africa”, said Gail Macleod, Stratcom Founder and CEO.
