Commissioned work done for Safajo, a UK based company that does African printed umbrella. Concept was for 4 designs Segun, Akpo, Tubou, and Yin, Arfican themes for victory, life, child and mother.
Segun - victory. Inspired by two Masai warriors.
Akpo - life, Ankara-pattern inspired by green leaves sprouting off branches. In two main colours to represent spring and fall, times at which the colours of leaves are most vibrant.
Tubou - child, safari inspired design for kids umbrella. Giraffes, elephants, rhinos with sharp angular shapes with a strong African artistic depiction.
Yin - mother, a design depicting the strength of African women. African Women (caring for the family, going to work, keeping the home together) carrying babies while holding an umbrella , doing domestic chores eg bent over a grinding stone. These images should depict her looking beautiful at the same time.
