Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!

Ziyaad Jaffar



I'm Ziyaad Jaffar and I'm a 25 years old born and bred Durbanite. I have a close-knit circle of friends, who enjoy socializing and we share the same likes and interests. I have a goal to travel Europe especially Italy, wearing a suit and having coffee outside an old Italian building. 

I'm an inspired entrepreneur who is persistent, motivated and driven to achieve my personal and business goals. "The greats never sacrifice the important for the urgent, they handle the immediate problem and still make sure they secure the future," is a saying that keeps me focused on what needs to be done. 

I'm part owner of  a boutique store called SCOUT, which is located in Station Drive, just off Umgeni Road. It is a store that houses purveyors of gentlemen's finery. We sell vintage clothes, industrial decor pieces, jewellery and grooming items. I also own my own company, PEG - promotions and events group, where I do promotions and activations for clients, promoting their brands at a premium level. 

I have a vision to establish myself as a brand, a go-to-guy, who can be relied on to deliver a professional service to my clients. I've always dreamed of being a successful businessman. My future plans see me living in a vibrant city, city life is energetic and exciting. I enjoy the fast pace, being able to attend meetings at my favourite coffee shop, shopping for that lit outfit and then going back to my pad to socialize with friends.
