Sue Disler has more than 20 years of experience in the advertising and marketing as a designer (and sometimes coder), art director and strategist, the last 16 largely dedicated to digital.
Her journey has stretched from Lintas to Ogilvy, the award-winning tinderbox (one of the South Africa's first interactive agencies), to six years on her own at Dizzo and back into advertising at DraftFCB, and she now finds herself ensconced at New Media Publishing, working with editorial teams and collaborating partners to create (and effect) multiple channel content strategies.
With a Graphics & Contemporary Society Certificate from the University of New South Wales, College of Fine Arts, Sydney, Sue has (for her sins) worked across numerous retail, vehicle, alcohol, medical, financial and media brands such as: Ackermans, Audi, BAT, BoE, BP, City Press, Cosmopolitan, De Beers, Deutsche Bank, Die Burger, Distell, Eat Out, Financial Mail, FNB, Ford, GQ, House & Garden, IOL, Johnnie Walker, Landrover, the Loerie Awards, Media24, Mediclinic, Mercedes Benz, Momentum, MultiChoice, Nedbank, Old Mutual, Plascon, Santam, Sanlam, Spur, Sterns, Sun International, Telkom, VISI, Vodacom, Volkswagen and Woolworths.
Career highlights include winning a few Loeries, a SPADA, an NTVA Craft Award, some Bookmarks and Picas. She launched SA's first cyber novel, Trekking to Teema, by satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys, has judged Loeries and the Bookmarks and is a contributor on Bizcommunity.
