Be­spoke tribal

STR.CRD, in case you didn’t know, is Joburg’s ruth­lessly hip an­nual, ur­ban, street cul­ture trade fair that high­lights fash­ion de­sign and mu­sic.

One of the bright­est of the bright young things at STR.CRD each year is the guest de­signer. This year it’s Joburg il­lus­tra­tor Lazi Mathebula, who works un­der the moniker, Grei­is­paces.

His work is bold and unique, edg­ily etch­ing colour into blocks.

His logo for STR.CRD (above) may, at first glance, seem like yet more tribal-in­spired fes­ti­val brand­ing. But keep look­ing and you’ll see there’s more go­ing on. The totemic de­sign draws on a tra­di­tion of African wood­cut and spins a clever twist – it’s based around a shirt col­lar to re­flect the STR.CRD vibe. Call it be­spoke tribal if you wish.

STR.CRD takes place at Con­sti­tu­tion Hill on Novem­ber 8 from 11am. Tick­ets are R150 at the door and R50 on­line.
