Meet the CREATIVE TEAM behind the campaign

Creative Director | Janet Pereira

Janet is the owner of  Urban Lava Advertising. She is passionate about marketing and sales and brand development

Graphic Designer | Bernadine Kirsten

Bernadine studied at Damelin College an graduated with her diploma in Multi-Media Design and Technology in 2009. She started her career at Urban Lava and has creatively exploded working on Urban Lavas International accounts.

Script Writer | Nicolette Croucamp

Nicci graduated from the AAA School of Advertising, twice. In 1990 she completed the Copywriting diploma with honours and in 1991 the SA Direct Marketing (SADMA) diploma, also with honours. She walked away with the Copywriting Excellence award, the SADMA award and the Nasionale Perse Boekeprys.

Her 20-year copywriting career has spanned several advertising agencies (including Young&Rubicam, TBWA Hunt Lascaris, Tequila and Red Nail), two radio stations (94.7 Highveld Stereo and Jacaranda FM), and in the last six years Nicci has established herself as a successful freelance writer, working from home around her two young children.

On any given day Nicci writes articles on any number of subjects for a variety of corporate newsletters and customer magazines, she also writes press releases for various SMEs, brochure copy, radio scripts, promotional concepts and web content – for an ever-increasing variety of products and clients.

She’s especially good at getting stuck into “buffets” of information and research, which, after some mental digesting, are transformed into bite size pieces of copy that are easy (and even pleasant) to swallow.

In her spare time (about five minutes per month) she pursues her interest in blog writing, human interest stories and her own children’s stories.
