We’d like to introduce you to the Plascon Trends team.
Zurita Moore is the editor on the Plascon Trends blog. Zurita has worked for Kansai Plascon for just over six years, starting her journey at the Plascon Design Centre in Cape Town. She moved to Johannesburg a little over three years ago as the Plascon Spaces Showroom manager and moved over to the Marketing team in July 2015 as Corporate Communications and Digital Media Manager. Zurita loves colour, and as an amateur “DIY-ster” we can see that there will be lots of inspiration and interesting posts coming your way.
Currently the Cape Town Senior Décor consultant for Plascon, Kerstin has been in the design and décor industry for more than two decades – having previously worked in the film and photography industry, and as a Senior Décor Stylist and Johannesburg Bureau Chief of ELLE Decoration magazine for about 10 years prior to her appointment at Plascon’s Freeworld Design Centre. In the words of Kerstin: “I feel excited about how design impacts our lives, and not only from an aesthetic point of view. With the aid of information technology, we are exposed to a world of different cultures and their creative stimuli – allowing trends to cross borders. In addition, décor and fashion trends are intrinsically impacted by what is happening in our world; they are constantly evolving according to the times and needs. Luckily I get to be a part of this world and observe its evolution … And then there is colour, which brings all these creative industries together. Lucky me, I get to work with it every day!”
