African inspired cards


A while ago we featured Ben Grib’s South African inspired coster designs which are worth a look at. Since then he has updated his portfolio and created a range of cards that are inspired by Africa. Each card features a wonderful pattern tapestry that makes up the rich heritage of the african people.

“We took our cue from landmark styles such as Ndebele, Xhosa, Zulu and Venda and deconstructed them into a simple two colour non repeat pattern.”
