LIZ BLOMKAMP Branding
Liz Blomkamp is a South African born, Vancouver based Graphic Designer. In 2012, she made the switch to Digital Design, from her previous line of work in Event Management and Marketing. Prompted by a growing number of requests for design input from friends, family, and admirers of her work, Liz pursued a graphic design program for formal guidance on how best to channel her inherently innovative, creative energy. Being raised in a family of artists, musicians, photographers, painters, filmmakers, writers, architects and animators, Liz was immersed in an environment that not only fostered, but actively encouraged the pursuit of fine artistic culture. These days, Liz draws inspiration from her overseas travel, her beautiful Pacific Northwest surroundings, and her rambunctious three-year-old son, who adds more than a splash of colour to her work…and the walls of her home. dirtyrottendesign.com
