Stellenbosch Triennale 2020

We are so proud to be involved in the Stellenbosch Triennale 2020, which runs from 11 February to 30 April next year! It centres around the theme: Tomorrow there will be more of us and features multiple artists and exhibitions across Stellenbosch. We’ll be involved in a number of ways and we are very excited to tell you more as we get closer to the event.

For now, you can learn more about the Triennale at their website here, or their official release here.

SPAN Corporate Identity

Recently, the Stellenbosch Outdoor Sculpture Trust changed their name and thus were looking for a new corporate identity. They approached our Graphic Design department at the Academy for help with rebranding. With a new name: The Stellenbosch Public Art Network (SPAN), our Graphic Design 3rd year students were given the task of defining their new corporate ID.

In the end, Lauren Riley’s work was chosen. Her work can be applied well to all of the different outputs and platforms in which which SPAN operates. This rollout did not just include the logo though, students also had to design a new front end for the website as well as an app which could be used by SPAN to guide the public through their exhibitions. The final part of the task was to design a wayfinding system for SPAN’s public art exhibitions, making the design not only decorative but highly functional too.

Well done Lauren – we are so proud of your work!

Stellenbosch Sport Ambassadors

Our second year students recently helped the Stellenbosch Sport Ambassadors develop visual elements for their athletes taking part in the Paralympics in Brazil. The final campaign, BeWon, shows how the athletes themselves can bring the community of Stellenbosch together. Well done to all our students involved: Chiquita Williams, Robyn Bodmann, Sarah Yeats, Jamie Waller, Mario Kirkland and Jess James.

Great work for a great cause!
