Daripada abjad yang ringkas ke simbol bahasa yang tidak diketahui, pereka bentuk grafik, Saki Mafundikwa, menyanjung banyak bentuk komunikasi bertulis di sepanjang benua Afrika. Dia menekankan sejarah dan warisan yang terkandung dalam perkataan dan simbol, dan menggesa pereka bentuk Afrika agar merujuk pada bentuk grafik ini untuk mendapat inspirasi baru. Ia disimpulkan dalam simbol Ghana kegemarannya, iaitu Sankofa, yang bermakna "kembali dan dapatkannya" — atau "belajar daripada masa lalu".
