About Gary

I’m originally from the UK and the principal creative at BZC. I graduated from University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours in Design. I also hold a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design. For over a decade, I’ve held various design roles; my last role prior to establishing Blue Zebra Creative was Senior Graphic Designer at Elior UK – a large contract catering company. Before Elior, I worked in advertising for a global publication in Manchester.

At Elior UK, I primarily provided design support to the business development division, as well as other corporate departments. My initial role was document design/production, and I was involved in a number of successful bids for clients such as Deloitte, Carlsberg, Nestle, Cadbury and Bentley Motors. I was also involved in European bids for clients such as Honeywell, EDF Energy and Cisco.

Since establishing BZC, I have worked with a number of esteemed Botswana-based clients such as Metropolitan Life, Maru-a-Pula School, The Masire-Mwamba Office, UNDP, UNICEF, PEPFAR, UNAIDS, Peace Corps, to mention a few. I support a new tourism association (Africa’s Eden) and work with firms in South Africa, Mauritius, as well as European organisations involved in African projects.

About Mpho

I’m originally from Maun. I work with Gary in building strong relationships with our clients. I also provide proofreading, translation and professional editing services.

I have an English Degree, a Post Graduate Diploma in both Education and Business Management and Level 2/3 NVQs in Customer Service, which plays a key role in branding. I’m a qualified English teacher with a background in journalism and broadcasting, having worked at The Okavango Observer Newspaper (now The Ngami Times) & Botswana Brodcasting Services (Radio Botswana). I have also worked within the safari industry.

Outside of BZC, I am an Editorial Consultant, and my professional career includes customer service, account management, public relations, communications and client relations. Working in the UK afforded me invaluable experiences, training and development I wouldn’t have otherwise experienced. This alternative approach and professional perspective is what I have brought with me back to Botswana.

I provide editorial and proofreading services for a variety of clients in America, Kenya as well as Botswana, and I teach English to students in Europe via a virtual classroom.
