Jarrod Pretorius is a "Pure Design" lover first and an Advertising Creative (a very close) second who’s main goal is to inspire others to grow and explore their own potential.
With an instinctive love of photography and a new found creative outlet of copywriting, Jarrod can skilfully conjure up great content for both digital and print. Known to many as Jaza, this 6ft 4’ yeti like designer has run his own businesses, freelanced to agencies and studios in London, been bitten on the head by a “small” croc while spear fishing in Zimbabwe and survived, has learned a lot about life, himself and his craft in his 17 year career as a creative and has even managed to bag a couple of awards and shortlist spots along the way.
Jarrod has had the privilege of working with Brands and Companies such as Toyota, Nandos, Old Mutual, Western Union, Harrods, BBC Haymarket and Unilever as well as a host of Blue Chip Companies in Zimbabwe such as TelOne, NetOne, National Foods, MBCA (Nedbank) and BakersInn (Innscor). Projects for these clients have ranged from rebranding, digital strategy, advertising campaigns, lookbooks and style guides, packaging and general design based requirements of both digital and print.
