The Aleit Academy will be closed from 17 Dec 2018 – 14 Jan 2019.

As creative aficionados in training, we love to gather around cool industry experts and tap into a wee bit of greatness. We had a happy little chat with our Industry Expert of the semester – DeeJee Kruger, ex-Aleit Academy student, from a | CREATE.

DEEJEE KRUGER

a | CREATE is all about:

// is about creating, creating an experience for people, and idea that can manifest itself as a tactile entity something that your whole being can feel, from the smell of the flowers and the vessel that holds them, all the way through to the flow of a space and the luxury of a down feather scatter cushion that is placed exactly where it needs to be!

It’s about transformation of spaces that can resonate to a crowd. What we do is not only make things pretty, we evoke emotions!

We are a small team that trusts in one another to ensure that all that magic comes to life!

DeeJee Kruger in 4 words:

// curiosity, dreamer,  cosmic- energy, seeker

WHAT DO YOU REALLY LOVE IN LIFE?

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO HOPEFUL YOUNG STUDENTS?

FAVOURITE LOOK:

// black on black

 

ON A RAINY, NON-WORKING DAY, I LIKE TO…

// oh honey I am an old romantic! I love the sound of the rain, I will snuggle up with a good book a glass of wine burn a scented candle and just submerge myself in that moment.
