MENTORING THE FUTURE.
Silver Chalk Mentoring program is a division in the company we started with in June 2014. We have seen the need to help graphic design students gain practical experience in the industry to not only successfully complete their design course but also help them find jobs after graduating.
Our goal is to have a group of 4 students that we source from our universities in the area i.e. TUT, Open Window, Design School SA, Inscape and Varsity College and give them an internship position for 6 months. Here they can ask questions, get exposure to real projects and be involved in these as well as learn how they can start up their own businesses or sell themselves as freelance designers. We also take them to shows like my biz expo, fespa, sarcda, etc. to help them see the industry in all its glory and find new innovative ways of starting small businesses.
MEET SOME OUR OUR INTERNS.
She completed her 3rd year in Graphic Design at the Design School of Southern Africa in 2015. She applied to do her masters in Graphic Design in 2016.
She is a very competent designer that has amazing work ethics and splendidly creative!
Our goal has been to assist her to find a part time position starting 2016 with a company to fund her further studies.
She was born in Mabopane.
She completed her 2nd year in Graphic Design at the Design School of Southern Africa in 2014.
Her passion is to solve problems visually and to make meaning from them to communicate by conceptualising different ideas around one topic until she chooses a solid solution.
With Silver Chalk she has been able to see how a studio really works and gained the much-needed experience to be ready for the working market.
I graduated from Design School of Southern Africa in 2015 and I began my internship at Silver Chalk Design Studio from 1st April 2016. During my term I have had the opportunity to develop and sharpen my skills in different areas of brand development as well as book layout designs. Adding onto that I have learned how important it is to be a team player not only at work but also in one life journey.
Other than that I do love painting mostly landscapes, photography and I love cooking!
