back invite

Thandeka

Having seen the invite designed for Siphelele and Aphelele’s memulo, this beautiful young woman named Thandeka requested a similar design. To create the distinction between the two designs (both being ‘postcards’ on the back and for a similar event; I used an image of a young woman in action of traditional Zulu dance called ukusina. I worked more with brown colours and the image to create a more earthy feel, keeping in line with the Zulu attire, whereby it is only their beadwork that is bright and multi-coloured.

Emzansi, people used to have the kind of mentality that it was rude & disrepectful to walk past someone and not greet. To greet in our culture, is to simply acknowledge someone as existing. In our most formal greeting structure, a traditional handshake always accompanies the verbal greeting.
As such, different and more informal, street and colloquialist forms of handshaking developed.

I had a mission to collect all members of the Jali clan on Facebook and for us to discuss our similar/ different histories, stories and izithakazelo. Though we never made our discussions public, it was beautiful to see similar characteristics of these two sides of one clan coin, being a clan of dual origins of amaZulu and amaPondo.
