There’s nothing more exciting than seeing our alumni go out and create awesome work out there in the world! This work by Ashton Winkworth is no exception. She works at G2 Design in Stellenbosch, which created these amazing typography-driven wine labels. We love how the design of the type itself represents the meaning of the word! We sense a possible design brief for our students coming up…
Ashton created the ‘Aquiver’ label you see above! Well done!
You can see more of her work on her Behance profile here.

Two of our students, Alena Sidorova and Shannon Heaver, entered the Lens Culture Awards this year and we think their work is really top notch!
The way the competition works is through social shares so if you want to give our students some love, don’t be scared!
Alena Sidorova shot the bright, colourful images with the patterned clothing, which you can vote for here.
Shannon Heaver shot the black and gold tone images, which you can vote for here.
We are so excited to share this! Our 3rd year multimedia students’ end of year project was a collaborative film where everyone played a part – from creating a production company through to design, filming, producing, directing, writing and much more.
We present… Midnight at the Flambabosa!
