Metaphoria turned 2 today!

Happy birthday to us!

Illustration by Robert Dersley.

Thanks to a little bit of luck, a good dose of love for what we do and the best clients and partners we could have hoped for, the first two years of our operation has flown by as loads of fun was being had. One of the greatest rewards has been learning about developments across various industries, but in particular the surge of possibilities opening up right beneath our feet. Living and working in Africa has never been as exciting as the era we’re about to enter. The introduction of new fibreoptic cables on the east and west of Africa is heralding a new era for the continent, opening up as yet unseen opportunities for local technology start-ups and users.

Thank you to all our clients for letting us be a part of this revolution, sharing insights and enabling us to do what we love.


Our first Loerie award!

We Think Everything Through.

We Think Everything Through - Lunch

Some of you may know already, we did the illustrations for a self-promotional print campaign for The Jupiter Drawing Room (Cape Town), (conceptualised, designed and art directed by Lucas van Vuuren), which went on to win a bronze Loerie in 2011! The campaign, titled ‘We Think Everything Through’ consists of two posters depicting the painstaking thoroughness with which The Jupiter Drawing Room approaches problems and solutions for their brands.

The copywriter on the campaign, Jonathan Commerford, also won a Design Craft Certificate for Writing  and the posters received  a merit award at The One Show in New York earlier in 2011, which you can see here and here. One of the posters is featured in a new Gestalten book called Visual Storytelling – Inspiring a New Visual Language, a truly inspiring publication!
