In a Pecha Kucha-style presentation, South African Information designer Barbara Ciliers talks about the typography of the 1920s by going on a visual journey with a Bauhaus reference. She speaks about some of the packaging work from her final year of study.

I try to keep the design nice and clean and simple without enticing the buyer on a superficial level., says Cilliers.

Cilliers’s bank note designs tell stories about the diversity of South Africa while also being layered with symbolism.
