Meagan H

Lecturer, Writer, and Designer in Cape Town, South Africa

I'm a big kid who has to contend with adult-sized responsibilities. I laugh really loudly at the worst jokes, drive fast and live slow. Social justice warrior, feminist, sayer of words, paradox, admirer of beauty and finicky about details.

After more than a decade of working behind the scenes, I now find myself at the front of the classroom. As of March 2015, I've taken up the challenge to teach young padawans the way of the force (in Multimedia) at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

From fulfilling the role of sometimes designer and manager, curator and SEO writer of the events section at CapeTownMagazine.com (from May 2012 to February 2015), I transitioned into a part-time role as a designer and doing research and development for the website.

Between 2011 and 2012, I made a living as a designer at Full Circle Communications doing the layout of printed internal communication notices and magazines for corporate companies such as Anglo–Dutch multinational consumer goods corporation Unilever, freight import and export management company SACD and South Africa’s best-loved brand conglomerate AVI to name but a few.

In late 2010 through to 2011, I served Food24.com as a content producer as part of an internship programme and found a love for digital content.

After a morning of shenanigans, I posted a #foodmovie tweet from the @food24 Twitter account and watched this innocent post go viral, first locally then internationally. The trending topic caught the attention of American online news aggregator and blog the Huffington Post. Quite possibly, my proudest social media moment.
