As the lion is gifted with sharp teeth and deadly claws to enable him to hunt, here my teeth and claws in brand building were not only gifted but also sharpened.

My paths led me to the unfamiliar hunting grounds of Non governmental organizations, where I was the lead digital creative and strategist. Content calendars, for various products and programs were big game in these grounds. As a successful hunter I was honor bound to take them down which I did as well as big ideation and strategy. The most successful hunt was the "issuesmbele" campaign geared towards a peaceful election. These grounds introduced an aspect of inclusivity and simplicity needed when dealing with sensitive issues of mass public consumption.
