Miniature Exhibition

We recently concluded our miniature exhibition at the Stellenbosch Academy where creatives from across South Africa submitted work for a cause. We are proud to say that it was an incredible success, with R10 000 raised for Senecio, an NGO that supports people with disabilities.

It was such an incredible experience and so gratifying to be able to use creativity to help those in need! Please do take the time to check out some of the artwork below, there really were some incredible submissions.

To all of you who submitted artwork, thank you so much – we couldn’t have done it without you. And to those who attended the exhibition. We hope to see you around again soon!

Stellenbosch Academy students take part in the first 8-i event in South Africa!

What a great opportunity to use creativity for a good cause! Our students recently took part in the inaugural 8-i event in South Africa, where young creatives donate their time and effort to help NGOs and worthy causes improve their branding, design and communication tactics.

In the short time our students were allotted, we are proud to say that they produced an incredible amount of work – from PowerPoint templates through to letterheads, wireframes for apps, posters and wayfinding ideas as well as WordPress sites.

It really is amazing what you can achieve under a deadline with a good cause in mind!

PPC Imaginarium Workshop

We recently held a PPC Imaginarium Workshop on 4 and 5 May where our students were taught how to work with cement as a creative medium, thanks to the incredibly talented Damien Grivas and Daniel van der Merwe.

This was all in service of the PPC Imaginarium competition, which is all about using cement as a medium for artistic expression. The Awards are currently held across six categories: Industrial Design, Jewellery Design, Film, Sculpture, Architecture and Fashion.
