Joanina graduated with a BA (FA) Information Design degree from the University of Pretoria (UP) in 1988. She has worked as design and creative director and as co-founder of Cross Colours, one of the country’s first women-owned integrated agencies, providing strategy, trough-the-line advertising, branding, packaging, promotion, exhibition, multimedia, product, décor and interior design services. Joanina’s sound strategic thinking and trendsetting approach for relevant conceptual solutions garnered both local and international recognition and earned her numerous awards.
In addition to her work in communication design, Joanina and her late husband David, established Studio Stirling in 2015 as a vehicle to realise her lifelong dream to design sculptural hanging furniture.
