About


Rashaad Sallie

I completed a 3 year full time graphic design course at The Johannesburg Art Foundation in 1993, gained excellent first-hand tuition from talented, experienced and not only lecturers, but superb graphic designers. I’ve always loved art, drawing and being creative. I remember my school books having the best drawings and well designed covers written in calligraphy. Art is in my blood.

I later worked in various local and international design companies and in 1995 won first prize from the Biological Science Department in Sydney Australia for a poster design.

In 1996 I joined the team at Digital Arts Animation Studio, producing 2D and 3D animation for local and international television, assisted in graphic design and video compositing and editing.

In November 1998 I founded theimagehouse.
