Tanya Sternberg was born in Durban, South Africa in 1977. She studied graphic design at the Ogilvy & Mather Red and Yellow School of Advertising and Design. She moved to Australia where she worked for Time Inc across their publications. On return to Cape Town she started her own design agency called Ink Design.
