About Jaclyn


My name is Jaclyn Hartman, my friends call me Jax for short.

Things you should know about me:

I am organised.

I have enthusiasm and initiative coupled with drive.

Creative yet practical and hands on.

Passionate about visual elements.

Focused with the right attitude

What I do:

I am a passionate advertiser, marketer and graphic designer (a one stop design shop).

Even though I did work as a film editor for 4 years.

After 4 years in the editing field, working at various production houses, I have realised that design is my life and I surround myself in it everyday.

I have extensive knowledge in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I also use other software to increase my design ‘know how’.

Art takes dedication; art takes time; art takes hard work. Be it a small icon, or a large scale billboard, I am ready for any challenge.

Who I am:

My father is an accountant, my mother is a teacher and my brother is completing his PHD in Black Holes or something – I guess this makes me the most eccentric person in a family of four.

I loved art and computers at school so it seems natural to end up adoring design and my Mac. I enjoy attending Adobe seminars learning about updates to the software and new features.

On weekends I walk my gorgeous dog, Genghis, a Japanese Akita. I go to Lesotho in the winter to snowboard and play in the snow.

I have a serious obsession for DC shoes, moustaches and putting Zambuk on my lips.

Now you know a little bit about me (maybe even more than you needed to know).
