Meet the Lecturers

lecturer

CARMEN

Head of Department Full-time Education and Senior Lecturer (Graphic Design and Art Direction)
Someone said the road to excellence is always under construction. If that's true then I'm determined to keep on building. Excellence in course design, excellence within our lecturing team, cultivating excellence within our student body... it's probably my favorite word! And of course "be excellent to each other" (Thanks, Bill and Ted).

lecturer

PROF. JOHN SIMPSON

Head of Department: Management Studies
Prof Simpson has a BSc in Psychology and an MBA and PhD in Consumer Behaviour. He is an Emeritus Professor and comes with an impressive pedigree of Dean of the Faculty of Commerce, Director of the Graduate School of Business, and Head of the School of Management Studies at UCT; as well as the founding Director of the prestigious UCT Unilever Institute of Strategic Management.

lecturer

DI

Head of Department: Marketing | Senior Lecturer (Marketing & Advertising Communications)
Passion and purpose are what drives me. And people. And being curious. And this place. I seriously love this place! And every day, I get to use what I’ve learnt in nearly 20 years in the industry and share it with some incredible students.

lecturer

CAITLIN

Head of Department Undergraduate Degree Programmes and Senior Lecturer (Marketing)
I am passionate about marketing and consumer research and in particular, the ways in which marketing can make the world a better place. I’ve been working in tertiary education for many years and always aim to have students leave my classroom with open minds and a keen sense of curiosity.

lecturer

PETA

Head of Department: Marketing | Senior Lecturer
I use over 20 years in the industry, together with 10 years lecturing experience, to empower students, watch them grow and ultimately do it better than any of us!

lecturer

DEAN

Senior Lecturer: Digital Design
If it runs on electricity, I can help. I have had an interesting career, I've worked in art, music, design, theatre, dance (not actually dancing), jewellery... I love taking on complex problems that require divergent thinking.

lecturer

MARNELL

Senior Lecturer: Visual Studies Having taught at tertiary institutions for many years, I encourage students to apply conceptual and critical design thinking to theoretical subjects, to always be conscious of the inter-relationship between theory and practice, and to make use of this overlap in all they do.

lecturer

CONNOR

Lecturer: Graphic Design
I’ve been a lecturer for 16 years, teaching visual communication (with an emphasis on graphic design), surface design, drawing and illustration. I’ve also worked as an illustrator. I’m an artist and have been painting for over 27 years. I’m mad about all things visual and I like to share this enthusiasm with the younger generation.

lecturer

SEKU

Lecturer: Digital Design & Digital Skills
I believe the student should learn, in the broader context of visual communication,  the responsibility that comes with the power to influence the public and to choose to promote South Africa and its ideals first and foremost. Digital Design kinda allows the student to keep up with the ever-shifting brink of new technological development. Each moment of enlightenment experienced by the student is a big plus for me.

lecturer

NINI

Lecturer:Graphic Design
With 27 years industry and almost 3 years of tertiary teaching experience, I believe that the recipe for creative success is to always be a sponge. I love sharing my (sometimes annoyingly optimistic) passion for design with my students. I love typography, simplicity, great concepts, reading, Jiu-Jitsu, and the stillness behind the surf break.

lecturer

STEPHANIE

Lecturer: Illustration
"I have been lecturing for 8 years and am a practising illustrator and storyteller - I let this feed into my lectures and reviews with my students. My mantra for my students is Play until something happens as I encourage them to make mistakes, take chances and experiment. When I'm not lecturing, I like to be drawing on the couch with my cat and my husband, watching crime documentaries."

lecturer

HELOISE

Lecturer: Art Direction
I believe in teaching for change – I believe that passion, curiosity & creative thinking are what helps us thrive in an ever-changing environment. For me teaching is a two-way street. I learn as much from my students as I teach. As a creative person I have always liked wearing many hats; painter, illustrator, designer, art director, stylist, potter and lecturer.

lecturer

HENRIËTTE

Lecturer: Graphic Design and Art Direction
When I think about what inspires me as a lecturer, it is being the lecturer that I needed when I was a young creative. Helping my students find their strong points and using them effectively in their projects makes me happy.

lecturer

NOBUKHO

Lecturer: Photography
As a firm believer in lifelong learning, she holds numerous qualifications (B.A Fine Arts Degree, Post Graduate Certificate in Education Visual Art and Theory, Post Graduate Diploma in Library and Information Studies) and has most recently been invited to conduct a seminar on her work at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, US. Nobukho is passionate about the transfer of knowledge as well as educating individuals from a disadvantaged background. Nobukho will be lecturing on the 1st year Photography module, as well as the 2nd year Photography module.

lecturer

WESSEL

Lecturer: Photography
He describes himself as someone who "makes things, captures light, and dabbles in chemistry for artistic purposes". In his spare time, Wessel travels all over the country to exhibit and work at various arts festivals. Wessel will be lecturing on the 2nd year Photography module.

lecturer

Jo

Part-time Visual Studies Lecturer
I am currently an MA candidate studying Theatre and Performance at UCT but have worked, researched and created in a range of fields including film, theatre, urban design and visual studies. With six years experience in lecturing and tutoring at tertiary institutes my focus is in the inter-disciplinary spaces that encourage flexible, creative and critical problem solving and creation.

lecturer

Tendai Mbumbwa

Lecturer: Marketing
I have been lecturing in tertiary education for almost 5 years and I continue to enjoy our lovely world. My Masters (Marketing) deepened my belief in the magic of understanding the people we share the world with. Marketing lets us do that from many angles and I keep being fascinated by it, hence my continued pursuit of education in this field. I hope that our students enjoy and even advance marketing in their creative ideas and can make our world an even sweeter place to live.
