Zimbabwe Creative Exchange – Dzimbanhete

Some more updates from our Honours 2018 trip to Harare! This text directly from our team out there:

Dzimbanhete Art Interactions Trust was our last stop on our first day in Harare and here art and creativity are grounded in culture. Our visit was richly rewarded with ideas, knowledge and practice that ranged from African architecture to a visit to a sacred cave where rainmaking ceremonies still take place; the rock paintings were a bonus. Boundaries between art, culture, community and people are very blurry here, there is a spiritual frequency to practice and process. We did not feel like strangers. We left enriched.

Just Design – Presenting at the Academy

We recently had Just Design present to our second and third year Graphic Design students. They are a multi-disciplinary design agency with a focus on branding, packaging and innovation. They shared some of their work with us, showing the incredibly high benchmark they have set for good packaging practice and the icing on the cake for us was having two Academy alumni, Jolize Jacobs and Maderi Hoffman, presenting the work!

3rd Year Publication Brief

There’s nothing we love more than sharing the incredible work our students produce and this is one of those times when we get to do so.

The following images and designs were produced by our 3rd year Graphic Design students for their first brief of 2018. You can read more about the project directly from the lecturers below:

The first brief for the 3rd year Graphic Design students looked at Impact design, which is based on the impact that values and behaviours of human kind would have and has had on environments, society itself and economies. The students had to write their own stories deduced from a current issue but interpreted into fiction. This project therefore required that the students create a set of books, which was written, illustrated, hand bound and packaged by them reflecting life on planet Earth in the year 2018. The full exhibition can be viewed during OPEN DAY on the 3rd of March 2018.
