Creative Director, R/GA, USA
Natalie created her first ad in South Africa with a pair of safety scissors, some gold tin foil, and a picture she’d cut out of a magazine. She was in Grade 10, and the teacher was still handing out safety scissors. Since then, she received the Young Creative’s Award recognizing her as the country’s top talent in the advertising industry. She has also been awarded at numerous local and international award shows including Cannes Lions, D&AD, Clio, One Show, and LIA. She has over 10 years of experience in the ad industry, and now works at R/GA as a Creative Director. Prior to that, she spent two years at Grey New York working on Volvo and Canon. Her true passion is to create integrated campaigns across multiple platforms that find their way to her mom’s Facebook feed.
