songo.info (visit songo.info) is a charity project which fundraises for a bmx track in a stellenbosch township kayamandi. it consists of a bunch of super cool people including ruth bird who is managing the whole project and who invited me to sponsor the project with designm branding and internet stuff.
project is promoted by world champion mountainbiker christoph sauser (sauserwind.com) who together with barry stander competed in cape epic (cape-epic.com) as songo.info team. they were actually leading the first two stages of the race before barry got injured. however a lot of publicity has been gained and photos of them wearing songo.info shirts will go around the world.
i am super proud that my designs got such coverage and such impact – my goal was to make it super visual and obvious from distance exactly from such situations like racing and finishing a race on a bike etc. even more i am super proud that one day, maybe ten years form now, i will be back in stellenbosch and i will visit kayamandi and there will be a bmx track which i, in my own little way, have helped create. this is great!
i would suggest anyone anywhere to be part of such projects as they are so fullfilling.
thanks to ruth bird for making me part of this project and thanks to christoph, dan, barry, elana, anyone who was part of it and making it happen. awesome!
