It was while exhibiting at 100% Design South Africa that Luthando decided to apply for the Design Indaba Emerging Creatives Programme to help launch his career.
The illustrator, designer and web developer graduated from City Varsity with a qualification in multimedia design and development. Since then the Joburg-based creative has used his passion for art and tech to help brands likr MTN and Mercedes Benz.
"I’ve built some of the first Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality apps in South Africa for Mercedes and MTN while I was a designer and developer for a small startup in Maboneng. I then moved to one of the biggest digital agencies in South Africa, AquaOnline, where I worked as a web developer on some of the biggest brands like Coca-Cola, Mercedes, ShowMaxx and MTN," he says.
