Kgabo Mametja is a creative whose work can be described as bold, colourful and unapologetic. She studied visual communications at Vega, a branding school that’s based in Johannesburg. It was here where she developed an interest in commercial art and, more specifically, its values around accessibility. This interest was the catalyst that drove her to teach herself how to illustrate. Her career started off in advertising, where she worked as a designer while continuing to hone her skills as an illustrator through personal projects. She took the leap into working for herself in March 2019. This move gave her the opportunity to work with clients like Penguin Random House, Pop Sugar, Working Not Working, ONE and Puma under the moniker, Saint Rose.
