WHO WE ARE
We are a design duo made up of Nontokozo Tshabalala and Osmond Tshuma, founded in 2016 in the city of Johannesburg. As young designers from the Afrikan continent we've always had the dream to create work and spaces that celebrate our identity and allows us to grow in uplifting the role of the Afrikan designer. This is particularly important because although the discipline of graphic design is founded on western principles we still find ourselves discontent with its lack of representation and freedom to be defined by the individual who doesn't belong to that culture.
This is a collection of work we have done individually and collaboratively which we believe shows the diversity that the Afrikan voice brings to the table. This is done through the traditional forms of graphic design, storytelling, poetry, essays, typography and many forms we are yet to explore.
