MICHEL CRUZ

Urb. Guadalmina Alta, Blq. 3, Local 79
ANDALUSIA, Spain

Email: jackie@manifestodesign.com

I have a multicultural background: born in Johannesburg in 1968, I grew up between
Holland and South Africa and have travelled extensively ever since. Originally pursuing a
career in FMCG marketing, I soon found my real calling in journalism, becoming editor of
quality Marbella-based magazines such as Villas & (www.villas.com) and Essential
Marbella, (www.essentialmagazine.com) Spain.
In addition to running my design and publishing agency, Manifesto Design, I also
contribute to other local and international publications. While my background is in
economics, I work together with highly respected photographers and write on topics as
diverse as travel, culture, history, people, art and artists, design, business and current
affairs. A native English and Dutch speaker, I also translate between these two
languages, and bring marketing savvy and writing skill together in my copywriting.
Although I specialise in writing to brief, I have built up a large stock of articles on a wide
variety of topics and have been published in Spain, Portugal, UK and the US.
