Pop Culture Badge Designs

South Africa has an amazing mixture of customs, language and social behaviour. This “melting pot” shapes the uniquely African culture and identity yet interesting elements remain unrecognised. More often than not the idiosyncratic quirks and nuances go unnoticed or are dismissed as trivial. Yet if you dig a little deeper, there are rich stories and history to be discovered. With this in mind, I was inspired to design a series of badges based on quirky South African words and the origins behind them.
