About Me

Hi. My name is Gontran Riedel and I'm a graphic designer.

If you're looking for a determined and capable young designer, then I am your guy. Growing up in Namibia I have learned that the best skill that anyone can posess is the skill of adapting and learning anything and everything that allows you to get a job done. This mentality feeds directly into my design and marketing disciples, ensuring that deveolpment never stops.
