Cardijn College Work

Currently I work full-time at Cardijn College as their graphic designer. Below is some work I have made for Cardijn College and Marcellin Campus.

Marcellin Campaigns

I have worked on many campaigns for Marcellin Campus, mainly focusing on start-of-the-year intakes and mid-year intakes. When creating campaigns I typically list with the Marketing Director what advertising will be done so I can create across all print and digital platforms.

Cardijn Campaigns

I have created many campaigns for Cardijn College as well for intakes, open nights and other events happening at the college. I typically create collateral for print, web, social media and large scale ads such as shopping centre panels and billboards.

Inspired Magazine

Cardijn College has a magazine for Alumni called “Inspired” that dives into amazing work that past-students of Cardijn are doing. I designed the first issue and have continued this design theme throughout the following issues.

Publications

Both Cardijn and Marcellin have dozens and dozens of publications for parents, students, stake-holders and staff. I create new publications and update current publications on a weekly basis to ensure all our material is up to date.

ReBranding

As I started working at Cardijn they were busy changing Marcellin Technical College to become Marcellin Campus of Cardijn College. I undertook the rebranding of the logo, signage, redoing all publications and literally everything that had the old branding was revamped and made from scratch.

Awards & Certificates

Cardijn College and Marcellin Campus give out a lot of awards and someone has to design them, that person would be me! As I joined I have tried to really push the envelope and modernise the certificates. Here you can see some various design proposals I made for the DUX certificate last year.

Print Ads

Cardijn and Marcellin do print advertising from time to time in publications such as SA Life, the Messenger and so forth. Here are the designs for those print publications. 

Videos

I also edit a lot of Cardijn and Marcellin’s videos. Here is an infographic video I made regarding the Class of 2019. I have made graphic videos such as this and edit many videos for various platforms such as social media and for displays on school events.
