Zesta Online started freelancing in South African around 2003.
His first big commission was in 2005 with Saatchi & Saatchi for Peugeot.
He contributed illustrations for a national campaign, printed on billboards across South Africa and printed in magazines like HEAT Mag. There was also an app where people could customize an Peugeot107 in the app, and some off the artwork was used there too.
The mixed campaign ended up winning a Gold award at The Loerie's Awards.
Soon he was freelancing fulltime working together with Page33.
