I SMAAK MY DORP

Illustration, typography,painting and lettering I did for the South African Electoral Commission. It's based on old Afrikana heritage oil paintings, still lives and Afrikaans kitch, updated for the 20th century. ‘I Smaak My Dorp’ translates as ‘I Like (double meaning word also meaning to “taste”) My Town’ It was then used throughout their voting campaign in newspaper, other print and billboards. They wanted all the different elements separate to move around which made it extremely challenging to create a painting effect and keep the “layers” loose.
