Midnight at the Flambabosa

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!


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!


Stellenbosch Academy Students design signage for the Cape Town Mini Maker Faire.

Our Graphic Design 3 subject group has just completed an indoor way-finding system for the 2nd annual Cape Town Mini Maker Faire. This event, held on 26-28 August will bring together makers from across Cape Town at the Cape Town Science Centre to meet with and inspire each other.

From the original twelve teams involved in the project, two were chosen to complete the signage systems. Saffron Shaw and Ashley Fraser tackled the outdoor signage, while Lhente Strydom and Ashley Wallendorf took on the indoor. These formed part of larger campaigns that were originally presented, which will be on show when our student portfolios go on exhibition on 16 November.

Well done everyone!

Alex Silitra – Killer Swan Packaging

It’s always great to see the level of work that students around the world produce. This packaging concept by Alex Silitra from the Miami Ad School Europe is exceptional. From the quality of illustration through to the consideration of colour and understanding of design principles, this is really impressive.

We do suggest you spend the time looking at Silitra’s portfolio above, because it has some amazing thinking and craft on display.
