We just held a bookbinding workshop for our 2nd and 3rd years, run by the incredibly talented Heléne van Aswegen who is a specialist artist book binder. She collaborates with professional artists to co-produce once-off or limited edition Artists’ Books (also known as Bookworks or Livre d’Artiste).

What a nice way to start 2018!
We hope you’ve all had a great break – but we’re back at it and ready to rock and roll.
We’ve got two great pieces of news to share with you. First, one of our students, Cole Ndelu was featured on the Vogue website for her streetstyle at the Afropunk festival. Nice one Cole!
You can check out the post here.
Secondly, three of our lecturers were chosen as judges for The Young Ones 2018. These student awards, created by the One Show, are all about celebrating students’ creativity. What an amazing feather in our cap. To our lecturers who will be judging: Marika Spangenberg, Wessie van der Westhuizen and Daniela de Lange – well done! We’re so proud.

We love nothing more than seeing our students take entrepreneurial initiative! Today, we’re sharing work from Emma Haines, a 3rd year graphic design student and Carla de Beer, a 2nd year illustration student. They both showcased their wares at the Private Hotel School Night Market in Stellenbosch on Friday night, with Carla also exhibiting earlier in the year at the Academy’s Miniature Exhibition.
To see more of their work and support their entrepreneurial efforts, you can check them out online!

At the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography, we love great illustration, and we do our best to ensure our students in the illustration stream do the best they can.
This selection of posters by Stephan van Wyk show how great illustration can make for a compelling image, which makes you want to know more.
They say the mark of a good poster is one that you would want to steal if it were stuck on a street pole – we think these pass that test, not that we advocate stealing of course! 😉
