12 Years and 22 issues after the first issue, Ijusi, a publication produced by Orange Juice Design has become a legendary record of South African graphics design as well as an agitator for afro-centric design. It’s influence in the South African design community is unparalleled.
This exhibition tracks the highlights from the last 12 years the magazine has been in circulation. The exhibition looks at the influences on the visual language of the magazine, as well as it’s impact on the graphics design industry in South Africa.
Previous issues have ranged from focusing on Death, Pornography, Religion, Race to Typography. Collected and viewed together, the last 23 issues of Ijusi Magazine become a visual record of South African society’s transformation – it’s a look at ourselves and reminds us that design can have a conscience too.
