WISHLIST: Graphic Designer, Daniel Ting Chong

 

Our WISHLIST series is starting! During the festive season, we’ll be promoting only locally made products so that you can support South African creativity. We know international brands can be tempting but our country has so much to offer and we’re here to keep you in the loop on the newest SA-only desirables (for your wishlist, or gift ideas) – from shop directories and product listings to featured what-we-want lists from admirable and trend-setting South African individuals.

 

Daniel Ting Chong, an artist, graphic designer and illustrator, is our first contributor. He’s an infographic king and colour coordinator, whose work often includes mini characters, cartoons, images and icons. From printed patterns to socks to skateboard graphics and more, his portfolio of work is super interesting and fun to look through. Labelled as one of Cape Town’s top talents, we wanted to know what his local WISHLIST looked like. His top ten choices were:

 

 

1 / Sol-Sol Black Destroy Tee

Sol-Sol is straight out of Durban and they’re doing extremely well locally, and internationally. Super nice basics and the quality is there.

 

 

2 / Athi-Patra Rugas Tapestries

The work speaks for itself. I may never ever be able to afford one but nevertheless, I can only wish for it. They’re incredibly beautiful and just super wow.

 

 

3 / Chapel Caddy Backpack

Super clean and beautiful storage from Chapel. They’ve stuck to their quality and design over the years and it’s difficult not to want.

 

 

4 / Artgrip Black A1 Frame

Changing the game in the framing market, this is a super smart and well designed system for framing. Locally made and beautifully branded.

 

 

5 / Young & Lazy Black Crewneck

To support a homie and fellow artist, it’s great to see his brand grow so much.

 

 

6 / Skinny LaMinx Cushion Cover Flowerfields

Need I say more? Heather’s work is so so good and well constructed from the scale and design of the pattern, down to the assemblage of her products.

 

 

7 / Pedersen + Lennard Jozi Shelf

Clean lines and overall practicality, I love the mixture of steel and hardwood and that it can be powder coated in several colours.

 

 

8 / The Detailsmith – Espresso Cups

Quirky and beautiful typography over something usually mundane, these are super fun and just great.

 

 

9 / 2Bop x Dr. Z Game Over Tee

When the OGs in the street culture game come together, you can’t sleep on the release.

 

 

10 / Wolter Made Vonk Lamp

Each of these lamps are hand blown and the curvature shape is super nice.
