Nkwenkwe Nkomo - ACA
From an angry young black man to a mildly malignant middle-age tolerant executive. That's the short story of Nkwenkwe Nkomo. He joined Lindsay Smithers - FCB in 1983 as a trainee copywriter under Jim Haines and literally rose within the ranks to creative director, a position he held for seven years before being appointed deputy chairperson of Lindsay Smithers - FCB Sandton in 1995.
Nkwenkwe honed his skills in Chicago and is an alumni of the FCB advanced advertising programme class of 1987. He further enhanced his creative career with a stint in New York, traipsing between Madison Avenue and Fifth Street in the early days of the FCB and Lebber Katz marriage.
He served as a member of the Creative Directors' Forum until 1996 and while he never hoisted his own bird, he played a role as a Loerie Awards judge for some years before publicly dissociating himself from the awards. His passion for creativity in radio advertising saw him facilitating and presenting sessions for numerous radio writers' workshops with John Culverwell, Street Ramley etc.
Nkwenkwe is the past chairperson of the AAA, now known as the ACA. He is group chairperson of FCB South Africa. He is a lover of music, especially jazz, and a renowned mad-hatter.
Tebogo Serobatse - THINK
Tebogo Serobatse is a qualified graphic designer and web-developer, who is serving her second term on the board of director's forum for THINK (South African Graphic Design Council). Her involvement with the industry has resulted in her participating in various industry-related concerns; and in judging panels of both student and professional design competitions, including the Loerie Awards.
Combining her natural artistic skill and her love for history and theory, she completed her BA Honours degree in Graphic Design. She continued researching design from the indigenous African perspective in completion of her M-Tech in Graphic Design, exploring the similarities between the visual arts produced during the Sophiatown Era and the Harlem Renaissance. Teaching came as a result of a combination of all those elements.
Currently, she is embroiled in a Master's degree in Education, specialising in Tertiary Education, through the University of the Witwatersrand. Having started in the print-design field, she moved on to digital design, and in fact, still dabbles in both. This gives her a unique perspective in her current position as design lecturer.
