About Austin Madinga

“We gave Austin Madinga a tough task of transforming our ideas into creative designs for the Election Situation Room (ESR) Southern Africa project. Austin did exceedingly well to design all the materials we needed over the nine month project period. He was able to design flyers, banners, handouts, T-shirts and all materials we wanted to use. He was responsive, punctual, and patient throughout the entire process. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
Vincent Kumwenda
mHub CEO
"Austin is a very thorough and down-to-detail brand identity designer. He is very skilful in graphically interpreting client’s branding requirements and aspirations. He successfully completed two logo design projects for AHL Group Ltd and one of its subsidiary companies, AHL Commodities Exchange Limited (AHCX). As someone who led the projects, I am extremely happy that I worked with Austin Madinga because the final products were terrific."

"I engaged Austin as a Consultant to manage the online/digital presence for my coaching practice that entailed development of a website and newsletter designing among many other things. From the outset, he exhibited high standards of professionalism, generated high-value solutions and walked me through the so many complex areas regarding digital information and management that I wasn’t familiar with. He consistently followed through his project commitments and delivered it in time with no hiccups at all. He remains my steady and solid ‘go to person’ on all ICT related issues concerning my business!"
