Lindi Maritz completed her graduate degree in Multi Media design with a first class pass. During her graduate degree she was nominated, and placed third, for the SABS Design Achiever awards. With the design and development of “Mysisterskin”, a safe sex package developed for women who love women she placed in the finals. The opportunity and the “hands on, minds on and hearts on” mantra of Design Achievers dramatically fuelled and changed her passion for not only social responsible design, but also visual research. Consequently she furthered her studies at the University of Pretoria and completed her Honours in Visual Studies, specialising in digital culture and queer studies. Lindi is in the process of advance her studies in the discourse through a Master’s Programme and research endeavours.
With an intimate and long standing passion for the community and design Lindi is actively involved in collaborative projects with creative’s to produce visual artefacts which are not only innovative, beautiful and significant but also challenge social and cultural norms. It is this passion and critical engagement with the environment which she carries through in her personal and professional work.
