Michaela Chante

Junior Designer. Based in London, UK.
Traded in my mother's home cooked meals in sunny Cape Town for a London Zone 6 room and Tesco microwave meals.



I relocated to the UK in November 2018 to start my career as a designer. When you leave university, you realise how little you know about well, everything. But, I'm finally here after developing stomach ulsers waiting for my visa decision, and I'm ready to learn.

I'm interested in being trained in branding and UI/UX design, but my dream job would be learning how to bring niche brands alive in commercial spaces. But basically willing to do anything, I'll even be your secretary or make you coffee.
