Cool! Im currently in 3rd year Graphic Design at DUT(Durban University of Technology) in South Africa and i would dig to announce this competition to people in my class as we are, at the moment, doing a type project for Garth Walker of Orange Juice Design. It is an experimental type project that should base itself on African culture but i don't mean the cliche patterns etc. I mean that it will incorporate the true essence of what it means to be a South African. There are about 60 people(i think) in my class. Is it cool if i forward the e-mail address?
