My name is Silondile Jali
I am a creative designer/ visual communicator and graphic expressor.
My intention is to articulate life, love and emotions in full colour.
The process of creatively constructing ‘work’ as an artistic outlet, is something I love.
Through a variety of projects, I demonstrate diverse and alternative categories of graphic design. The collection consists of my personal style of expressions and ideas.

Some of my favourite people at my fabourite spot doing one of my fabourite things – Hippity Hopping!
NinetoFive is a party concept that i got to design the flyer for, and designig is my favourite thing to do.
The image is of one of our best exports, MaMa Afrika herself – the late Miriam Makeba.
It was taken while she was in Guinea – hence the extravagant hairdo. (http://www.miriammakeba.co.za)
Who better to represent female lovers of real good music?

as a designer, ive decided that i hate those clients whom are designers without the skills. you know the ones who draw the logo out for you, tell you want font to use and how to use it. like i do someone who knows what they want, someone who has direction but still needs a designer not a dtp operator. me im a designer! so that’s what i did…
Although it probably was used in th wrong context, I designed the font for ‘Celebrate Durban”
the ‘client’ was ultra specific bout what he wanted with yes diagrams and all
(can you still call them clients if they just paid the deposit and still owe you money?)
Celebrate durban is a real series of events in Durban (south africa) but none of the above logos are being used for the event ( unless im about to sue some people)
This logo is quite uniquely durban coz of the portion of City Hall, which is also used bt the minicipality as its logo. I rather enjoy the fun twist i added. ja, the ‘things’ on the side are vuvuzela’s. I prefer the logo below without them…
