26 South African graphic designers have each recreated a letter of the alphabet. Here are some illustrations from the #GraphicArtMonth campaign.

The award-winning online platform Between 10 and 5, which showcases South African creative entrepreneurs, is running a month-long online and social media campaign called  #GraphicArtMonth, part of which highlights the work of 26 of the country’s best graphic designers.

At the beginning of March, each designer was tasked with redesigning a letter of the alphabet and the results are being released each day on  10 and 5’s Instagram account.

The series will culminate with a public show-and-tell session in which the designers will exhibit their work, participate in mentorship workshops and be addressed by artists Lazi Mathebula, Nicholas Christowitz and Daniel Sneddon.

This will take place on April 6 from 4.30pm at The Jozi Hub, 44 Stanley Avenue, Johannesburg.
