A ROUND-UP OF DESIGN JOBS

CLIENT

The strangest commission I have had was to
create a lavish 50th birthday card/package
for Zindzi Mandela daughter of Nelson.
Which came via art directing Arise Magazine

BRIEF

The brief was to think outside the box and
create a intriguing and unusual card. The
solution was a bespoke tin box containing
a family photographic booklet and CD
with further imagery, music and birthday
messages of congratulations from
various celebrities. I commissioned the
Japanese street artist Dragon76 to do the
cover illustration. (He then got invited to
South Africa to do live graffiti painting at
the actual birthday party and got
to meet Nelson Mandela!)
