Stephanie Mazingi
Senior Digital Designer/ Art Director, TBWA Hunt Lascaris

As an extrovert and lover of all things artsy, I was raised to speak out about what I believe in and use my gifts and talents to influence those around me in any positive way I can. Exposure to different countries and being a creative lead on various brands, such as Fiat Crysler, Microsoft, Telkom, most recently Multichoice, and Doctors Without Borders who are making positive impact on the continent, keeps me motivated to do better. Besides my fine art passion, adding to my decade of design experience and digital skill sets, nyana will hopefully keep me making 'the pots'.  

Consistently tapping into those "Annie qualities" of always looking on the bright side of life, has kept me moving forward through all sorts of challenges, in spite of my background. I try stay focussed on the fact that I am a creative soul, loved by the ultimate creator and fully intend to achieve all He has planned for my life.
