I am Sasha Vaughan, a designer and photographer living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. I am a graduate of the School of Architecture from the University of Cape Town with a Masters degree in Architecture. I currently work at Louis Karol, an architecture and interiors firm based in Cape Town and Johannesburg, where I oversee the marketing proposals and designs of commercial projects both locally and elsewhere in Africa.
Through my exposure to architecture and design, coupled with my love for detail, I discovered the joy of photography in 2008 and began shooting portraits and landscapes. Also, with the planning of my recent wedding (you can visit my wedding blog here ) I rediscovered my joy for graphic design and doing many of the wedding details myself.
This is a home for my updates, photographs, designs, travels, and inspirations. Not only a place to write about artists, designers, photographers, places, and products I admire, but also a place to grow myself as a designer. I have a strong desire to include my own original content, to hone my skills as a creative and to share my experiences- where I like to explore, what I like to surround myself with- the aspects that speak to my process and expertise.
Sasha Vaughan is the visual diary of my journey to enjoy the present and the simple beauty in all things; I hope you will stay awhile and share it with me.
