We’re sliding into 2020 with the first IDIDTHAT.co Craft Awards for the year. And who better to kick things off than Black River FC’s Executive Creative Director, Roanna Williams.

Creative Director at Grey Africa/Liquid, Steph van Niekerk once went on stage 15 times on a single night at the Loeries.

Thank you Steph and Moses. 🙌🐾
