"Jack of all trades master of some".
Creative, innovative, flexible multi-faceted graphic designer and the Managing Director at PriDegree Design Studio specialising in multimedia: 2D and 3D animations, web designs, illustrations and graphic design.
I started drawing as young as I can remember. I went to Erundu Combined School, in Oshakati and moved to Swakopmund in 2006. Start with both Art and music classes. I completed my grade 12 at Swakopmund Secondary School (SSS) in 2009. I went to study Graphic Design at Midrand Graduate Institute in Cape Town in 2012. Currently, I am the managing director of PriDegree Designs. PriDegree Designs is dynamic graphic design studio operating in four major sectoriums: animation, web design, corporate identity and illustration to meets all your designs needs. Thanks for taking the time to look at my portfolio! I function in a variety of fields, and for the Graphic Design field, I operate by the name PriDegree Santos (pridegree is my graphic design alias which stuck). Pri in PriDegree stands for Prime - the first. It is linked to a series started it in 2014 - PriDegree Series: The African Alphabets, which I am still working at: pridegree.wordpress.com. I merely do not post so often, because I am working on other projects, which are providing immediate results. Furthermore, it forms a secret message, as it spells out "pride" gree.
During my pre-degree year, I got an internship at Inkfish Design Studio. I was only suppose to be there for one month and two weeks, but the director like me so much that it turned into a 3 months internship. I wasn’t even able to go home for the holidays, lucky me! Having grown up with both of my parents unemployed, and my mother struggling in her small businesses, I aspire to help young entrepreneurs and businesses struggling in the visual department. I believe that if we have more business owners more jobs will be available. I love fashion, and currently working with Nardo on the Nardo fashion brand and Nardo Originals. I enjoy working on projects that involves pure originality. My multimedia program is so diverse that I was exposed to so many streams of designs. I am very flexible, having had done a lot freelance work, I really don’t mind if the client wants to get involved in the projects, I mean they are paying for it so. I started conceptualising, PriDegree Designs during my pre-degree year and it grew with me to third year, and now I practically have a job.
Philosophy: "The sophistication is in the simplicity" Form must follow function heavily drawing from the Bauhaus School of Design and
Nothing should be lift chance.
I emphasis on clarity and legibility:
Demonstrated by the space between the characters The words should breath
the pictures should move
And the eye should relax
Celebrates the pick of BKDS Nascent
It emphasis on C- cube which stands for
Clean, Clear and Concise
Legibility is highly emphasized
A design need not be ambigious
I am a freeborn
Born after independence
Freedom reigns in my blood and the blood of Jesus affirms and testifies to this.
I believe in Christ the son, and that he did for my sins and freedom and he rose again I am a the chosen generation, a royal priesthood, the royal steward, a holy nation, a peculiar People And the Trinity.

Personal branding, For many years, I have been using trademarks as a way to organize the different functions which I do, namely: comics, fashion, arts, animation, teaching and business, to name a few. I have been doing this since 2003, however, a few years back in a design forum a designer asked me why I was I “so faceless”. At the time, I did not give much value to it, as was still building my brand, and for me it was important that potential clients identify the PriDegree logo. Now, that I have built my brand, I believe it is time to reveal the person behind the designers.
