Therefore taking this iconic item as a meduim of communication to express grievances of South Africans in a fashionable way yet provocative. This sets iToyi-Toyi as voice that stands for pride, social commentary on social issues such as race, corruption etc.

Illustration/Packaging Design: Packaging Design Brief: To create a name and a range of metal protection packaging Solution: We then came up with Metallo as the name which we felt it rhymed easily, catchy, easy to pronounce and remember. Considering we wanted a simple conceptual solution, we selected a muscular bold font. Our next challenge was communicating the different products under Metallo, using a simple graphic solution we extended the “L” letters of Metallo to form different metal substrates that differentiated the products. And introduced big coloured 1, 2, 3 system to assist consumers as steps to follow.

Using a simple vector silhouette and hand written wording “MMINO LIVE” i recreated the photographic image. Then brought in vibrate colours on the hands to emphasis the hands being a magical element in creating music. Other Elements: Launch Pull-up Banners where created to reveal the logo. So i incoporated an indigenouse music instrument as a back drop to re-inforce MMINO LIVE being about celebrating african music instruments.
