How many graphic designers and Illustrators do you know from ekasi? The Click took a visual tour through some of the individual work that was submitted by our Power of 50 learners and stumbled on a eye-catching illustration by a young graphic designer from ekasi.
Mandla Radebe also known as Moscow Jenkins to his peers hails from Dobsonville (Soweto) and is passionate about graphic design. He is a graphic designer by day a beat maker by night and sometimes produces beats for up and coming artists. He has found the two art streams to be intertwined in his presentations. Mandla has also spent two months interning at the Young and Rubicam SA agency as a team leader. Their campaign titled “Two seconds of perception” left most people who attended the #KNM exhibition asking each other about the impact of first impressions.
These illustrations that we are showcasing for The Click’s October/November best Graphic Designer award for are designed by Mandla and is titled “From the heart”. -which also inspired our favorite mural at the Umuzi offices redone by Thato Nhlapho.
