It wasn’t until I wrote and published my first blog post in 2010 that my love of the written word was truly unleashed. Words both written and spoken are powerful — they shape our perceptions, our beliefs, our visions, and tell the world who we are.
I feel very privileged that I can, through my writing, bring to life the stories about the people, places, and things that inspire me, so those stories may inspire others.
I believe books, print or digital, make an invaluable contribution to the development of the African design industry. We put information and different perspectives into context to help us make sense of things, and, more importantly, to create records of what has happened and is happening for future generations to look back on, to be inspired and to know what was.
Here you will find a selection of my books exploring African design.

Because writing and publishing my own books was never going to be enough, I now help other creatives produce and publish their own books too. By working together we can bring the exciting voices shaping Africa's contemporary creative scenes to print, so that they too can share their unique, diverse perspectives on design and creativity with the world.
