Gustav Bornman


I am Gustav Bornman, a driven 22 year old male who is always ready for any and all challenges. After matriculating in 2008, I immediately started working for Algae-X Enviromental, where I learned key team working and the importance of precision, planning and persistence.

In June 2010, I attended the South African Butler Academy advanced Lifestyle Manager course in Cape Town, where I honed my personel assitant skills, aswell as client interaction and event planning.

From September 2011 till March 2012 my life took a different turn when I decided to dive into the I.T world, by studying Java Development at Working Technologies in Midrand, Guateng. 

I am a very creative person and show it in everything I do.

3D Design

Only recently have I started 3D Design as an extra to game development, Autodesk 3DS Max has been my main tool which I use in conjunction to Photoshop to get the desired results.

Game Development

I got into Game Development when I finished high school. Since then a big portion of my free time has been spent on creating games as well as mods for popular games. Tools include Unity, UDK and JMonkey.

Adobe Photoshop

As a creative person, expressing my designs digitally has always been a passion.  In 2008 I thought myself Adobe Photoshop and been growing my skills ever since. Most of my work is for private use in Game Development and 3D Design but i have also created art for websites and other public projects.

Java Development

In 2012 I finished my Java Developer course at Working Technologies. Programming has become a passion during the extent of this course, and I am excited to apply my skills in the working environment.
