iJusi #31
Founded in 1995 by Garth Walker, and self-published annually, iJusi believes that, contrary to popular belief, print is not in fact dead. Each issue is uniquely themed, inviting South African graphic designers, writers, and photographers to share their personal stories, and to explore their experiences surrounding identity.
iJusi #31 (2016) was themed around then-president of SA, Jacob Zuma who, regardless of his controversial reputation, still has an undying following. This reminded me of the legend of the Pied Piper, who led and controlled rats and children simply by playing his magical flute. This inspired my design contribution.
The Freedom Charter was adopted in 1955 in Kliptown, Soweto and is characterised by its opening demand; "The people shall govern!".
