NinetoFive

January 21, 2010

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?

inspired by anger

never let a person you’re angry at take pictures of you while you’re giving them the look of death, unless you plan to turn it into something beautiful…

front invite

Thandeka

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.
