Design Spotlight: The Kikulu Foundation

Design Spotlight: The Kikulu Foundation

The Kikulu Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on global education.

The word Kikulu means "It's Important" in Lusoga, a regional dialect in Uganda. The Kikulu foundation believes the most valuable practice in creating lasting change is by investing in people.

When Alisha reached out about her website, I was honored to have the opportunity to work with her. This foundation is so close to her heart and it was such a special project for me. I can’t wait to share it.

Design Spotlight: Balladeer Films

Before I got started with this project, I researched why we are so drawn to all things vintage.

Vintage clothing has become mainstream and I can’t think of one person who doesn’t love old home movies. I believe this notion stems from nostalgia. We are able to look back in time with rose-colored glasses and idyllic ideations, that we simply can’t apply to our everyday life.

Vintage represents a sense of timelessness. Something everlasting. I believe that’s also what we strive for when we fall in love.

This idea is what I wanted to apply to Balladeer Films branding and website. Keep reading to get all the details of this latest design spotlight!
