The Feiyue SHAPES campaign is drawing to a close and artist number 4, Nicholas Kerr also known as Dekor, will be the last illustrator to create a SHAPES window installation at the Mooks store in Rosebank, Joburg. We did a Q&A to get to know him a little better:

One of his. Vodacom’s bungee-jumping baby? Yup, that too. We wanted to find out how one gets into this very intersting, challenging and creative line of work. Roger filled us in.
Cape Town illustrator and co-founder of One Horse Town Justin Poulter left our shores a while ago to work for UK based design studio – I Love Dust. We know a few local designers who would give an arm to work at this studio so we found out from Justin what it’s like:
