It's very easy for a design company to get caught up in the day-to-day, the hustle, the bustle, and in all things generally capitalistic. So when we get a chance to give a little back to the community, we jump at it.
The Ujongilanga Foundation came to us with one such opportunity.
This great NPO is headed up by one young and driven Kate Hillhouse. She, along with her foundation, are putting on an original theatre production (penned by herself and our friend Brett Mitchell of Alexander Road High School) for one night only in an attempt to raise funds to build a library in the Port Elizabeth Walmer Township - inspiring stuff.
We were able to help the Ujongilanga Foundation out by designing all the marketing materials for their show, Screaming Petunias, as well as a logo of their very own. Curious? It's simple - for those of us not well versed in the Xhosa language, Ujongilanga means sunflower; and with the foundation set to make many people's lives a little brighter, we couldn't think of better sybolism even if we tried.
So for anyone looking to indulge in a little culture, why not make an evening of it and do a little something for a great cause while you're at it. The show starts 19:30 on Saturday 21 July at the PEMADS Little Theatre and tickets are a mere R50. And as an added bonus a painting by renowned artist Sue Pienaar will be auctioned off after the show to raise even more funds.

Homeground Coffee Roasters wanted to see their branding come to life on their beautiful brand new Audi A1. They already had the perfect base colour - chocolate brown, so after some decisions regarding vinyl colour and overall effect desired, we came up with this - we think it looks pretty awesome.

Homeground Coffee Roasters was looking to further their brand, and what better way than having customers looking sharp while doing just that? As a first run we produced 4 variants on a chocolate coloured tee. To get your hands on one of these simply head down to Grahamstown and pay Homeground a visit - and why not grab some coffee too, while you're at it.
