It is with great enthusiasm that we announce #WeAreZA
As South Africans we've all felt that warm fuzziness when thinking about how lovely diverse and lekker potjiekos of a country we have all to ourselves. But visually we are spoilt for choice when it comes to our people, landscapes and overall representation of what (we may think) South Africa holds.
Enter #WeAreZA ...
A hashtag that will celebrate our visual grandeur big and small.
The vision is very simple. To get as many enthusiasts clicking and sharing their perspectives of what SA represents to them.
We are kicking off with a celebration of our landscapes. Photographer and filmmaker Kobus Swart (KobuSwart.com) has kindly shared some of his work for all to download (for free!).
So here without further ado, the first installment: 5 Desktop wallpapers for January 2013.
We will be showcasing all kinds of photographic styles and concepts for the duration of 2013. We invite photographers and graphic designers to become part of this.
Contact the studio to share your work or leave suggestions and comments below.
Get involved and tag your life in South Africa everyday.
#WeAreZa is not a hashtag it's a philosophy.

This logo and identity for top South African Director Of Photography, Tom Marais, was one of the easiest and most organic things to have ever come out of WebFarm and yet: The client LOVED IT!
The entire identity flowed from the initials: TM (also a camera)
Once that was established, the minimalistic elements were carried through from the business card design all the way to the web site.
Business Card Back:
the responsive website works great on iPad:
As scholars of creative efforts we are taught that the right way is to suffer for our art...
But sometimes it's ok if it's easy (and fun)
PS. Tom Marais also happend to be the DOP of Roepman, a project with which I have a special kind of bond ;)
