Da alfabeti semplici a linguaggi simbolici segreti, il graphic designer Saki Mafundikwa celebra le molte forme di comunicazione scritta del continente africano. Saki sottolinea la storia e l'eredità rappresentate nelle parole scritte e nei simboli, e incoraggia i designer africani a trarre ispirazione da queste forme grafiche. Tutto è riassunto nel suo simbolo Ghana preferito, Sankofa, che significa "torna indietro e prendilo", o "impara dal passato".
