Between 10 and 5, the ultimate South African design blog resource

Tomorrow we leave for South Africa, the biggest adventure of my life. I still can't believe this is happening and I am having trouble finding the words to describe my excitement. In the midst of packing, I took a moment to surf the internet for design bloggers in South Africa. I found an excellent resource for design inspiration and news in South Africa: Between 10 and 5, the creative showcase. The idea behind "between 10 and 5" is to showcase the best, actually between 5 and 10 of the best, pieces of recent work by South African designers. Check out some of my favorites below.


  1. Oh! Thanks for that! I was looking at the typeface that Puma picked for the back of the shirts of some of the African teams, and also looking at the FIFA logo for this World Cup, and thinking how cliched design FOR Africa seems to be, when it comes from the outside, or at least I assume it's from the outside, and I was just saying to myself that I'd like to see some examples of good contemporary African graphic design. This is a great start for me. Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Jennifer! And so sorry I misspelled your last name yesterday. I have no idea where I got that from (can I blame jetlag?). It's fixed now!
