Where eye-candy meets Einstein…

Ingrid specialises in her vision to create an alternative fantastical reality, that is overflowing with wonder and enchantment, while obsessively striving for the perfect union of function, form. She understands that creativity, content and passion are what drive beautiful imagery success, and the integration of design to every area of the project.

Everything you can imagine is real.

WHIMSICAL FLOWER CHILD WITH A ROCK AND ROLL SOUL.

At 24 Ingrid was promoted to the role of Creative Director for Learnthings South Africa. A new media company owned by the UK-based Guardian ensured that the stable of designers and developers under her care went on to win a number of international awards.

In a leap of faith taken by Ingrid in 2006, Ingrid launched her own design and publishing agency and popular online design magazine BigCityLife. Ingrid took on various roles growing her portfolio of skills to include not only the creative but also the more operations focused side of the business management and business and project finance.

Ingrid works with her team of hand-picked creative collaborators on large-scale projects, believing there is a better more cost-effective way than the traditional approach. Innovating the business of advertising and how budgets are spent in a creative and cost-effective manner – the highest results, by only working with a small team of the best creatives.

There have been seminal moments in the evolution of BigCityLife which have led Ingrid down interesting paths. Hitting a following of 100,000+ fans social media reach, and having a reach in 30 days of 4 million users gave her the credibility to acknowledge that she is fantastic at building communities! the world of photography, has seen her work being published in NYC, London & South Africa.
