Design Inspiration: Thandiwe Tshabalala

Thandiwe Tshabalala is a Freelance Graphic Designer/Illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. In her illustrated series called, ‘ABC’s of Xitsonga Names’, Tshabalala crafts a visual smorgasbord to showcase the different naming practices and definitions of the Xitsonga language. Xitsonga, also known as Tsonga, Thonga, Tonga, Gwamba, Shangaan or Shangana, is a southern African Bantu language spoken by the Tsonga people of South Africa and Southern Mozambique. I’m loving the colors, texture and movement of this series. Great job!!
