Finalists from the 2018 edition of the Nando’s Hot Young Designer Talent Search continue to fly the South African design flag high and proud. A new collaborative project between the designers, Nando’s and brand design and communication company Sunshinegun saw some of the finalist’s pattern designs turned into window decals, available to use at Nando’s restaurants around the world.
“It was a great idea to leverage off the HYD patterns as window decals for Casas around the world. We saw this as an excellent opportunity to share the story of Southern African design, and specifically the HYD finalists patterns and stories. Once the patterns were selected, they were vectorised, converted to one colour, and tweaked to display the bold shapes, while still maintaining the unique character of the pattern. We collaborated with each designer individually, who reviewed their adjusted pattern, and made revisions in some areas”
…says Sunshinegun’s Business Director Roshni Morar. The three patterns chosen were by Primrose Chimhanda, Spamandla Mdunyelwa and Zinhle Sithebe.
