This A6 spiral-bound Zulu-English calendar was a wonderful project to work on, created by Pam Sherriffs, who also wrote the mini-learning Zulu booklet, "Forgive Me, I'm an Impatient Mlungu", which has sold thousands of copies. Her whimsical sketches accompany 52 phrases, one to learn for each week of the year. It's a distinctly KwaZulu-Natal publication and a quality publication, not only for her line drawings but also for the very useful phrases that non-Zulu speakers in this province might like to pick up.
This publication is aimed at civil servants in South Africa in order to encourage good money management. I think we all need that! To make the tabloid more accessible, 12 pages are in Zulu, basically using the same copy as the English version. I worked with Christi Naude, head of the association, illustrator Simon Kennedy and translator Mbuyiselo Matiela who were all a pleasure to work with, especially when it came to delivering at deadline time.

A 24-page A4 format for the World Wildlife Fund, reaching its audience in northern KZN, a community that lives near the game reserve that hosts the WWF's Black Rhino Range Expansion Project, helping to preserve the black rhino. Mostly the news concerns the community and not so much the programme itself.

This project was a 24-pager for the
KZN local government.
I worked on it with a talented
illustrator, Simon Kennedy.
