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! The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not rea

As a creative, it is my responsibility to be aware of and analyze how people digest visuals. I believe that we're in a period of seeking nostalgia in art, and I strive to reflect that concept in what I create. My name is Ditiro (aka Potent), a professional Graphic Designer and Photographer from Johannesburg, South Africa.

As a multi-disciplined creative, I'm inspired by my dreams, life experiences and my surroundings. I usually find my self staring at a scene and wonder how I could artistically re-create that to evoke thoughts and discussion. I'm movitated by amazing work by other artists around the world, but still feel the need to do it "Potent style". My style is a bridge between minimal and abstract. The same could be said for my fashion sense. Just add a bit of street and hip hop.

While we're at hip hop, I've recently started a music movement and event called Trap Society. It is a boat for trap/hiphop and experimental fanatics to connect and engage under really good tunes. All of this is brought to you by Dirty Republik and Synergy Creative Team (do check them out on Facebook).

My goal is to become a major creative influencer, gliding across fields of music, fashion and entertainment. The competition in the city of gold is tough, but there's always room for fresh and unique ideas. Breathe, endure, and all should be fine.
