Yumna Sadan: art director, artist, superwoman

June 5, 2012

Meet gorgeous Yumna Sadan. We’ve worked together at two agencies over a period of about five years, I think. Ya, sounds about right. I know her as an  incredibly talented Art Director / Designer in this crazy advertising business. Award-winning, in fact.

One of my favourite pieces from her blog. She’ll show you how it was created.

(Shhh, don’t tell anyone but she and fellow copywriter Shameema Davids were two of my (many) favourites in the studio.)

Anyhoo, I also knew that she dabbled occasionally with paint and canvasses between shopping trips to Cavendish, gorging on popcorn & coke at Cinema Nouveau, hanging with local film director Oliver Hermanus – she calls him Ollie – and just being fab. What I was not aware of, is just how uber-talented she really is.

Had I known who T’art was, I would have retweeted, clapped my hands, jumped into the air. Hells bells, I may even have air-punched. *shudders at the thought*. Instead, I tweeted a demure ‘champagne o’clock’.
