I’m Ntsindiso Nqakaza, From Bizana in the Eastern. I’m a graphic designer who graduated at Ruth Prowse School of Arts. I love creating designs that will show people what is on my mind. My work contains lines and geometric shapes which are taken from African visual language. However, some of these shapes just come to my mind through African design inspiration. These designs are attentively demanding because of their abstracted elements. I grew up surrounded by rounded, squared, rectangular and hexagonally shaped houses. African architectural structure is what inspires me the most, so I’m telling African stories through my African visual language.
I want to tell people who don’t know, as well as those who do, by reminding them of African cultural differences. I want to relate my designs to everyone. For me, creating patterns that are simple geometrical shapes gives me freedom of appreciation of the nature of creativity. I intend to design the way I design for seeking attention from the viewer, to keep them asking themselves some questions that will end up making them appreciate the Art of Design.
