Od jednoduchých písem po tajné obrazové jazyky - grafický designér Saki Mafundikwa oslavuje pestrost afrických forem psaného projevu. Ve své přednášce klade důraz na historii a odkaz afrických písem. Naléhá proto na africké designéry, aby se písmy nechali inspirovat. Jeho poselství je shrnuto v jeho oblíbeném ghanském piktogramu Sankofa, který znamená „Vrať se a získej“ - tedy pouč se z minulosti.
