Fra simple alfabeter til hemmelige symbolske sprog hylder den grafiske designer, Saki Mafundikwa, de mange former for skreven kommunikation på det afrikanske kontinent. Han understreger historien og arven som er gemt i skrevne ord og symboler, og han opfordrer afrikanske designere til at trække på disse grafiske former for frisk inspiration. Det opsummeres af hans Ghanesiske yndlingssymbol, Sankofa, som betyder "vend tilbage og forstå det" — eller "lær af fortiden".
