Update: Favourite Things, Launching CARMMA & Posts about Identity, Design and Working from Home


Due to an extraordinary work schedule, I have sadly been very quiet on Afri-love this month. I thought I'd replace some of the silence by sharing some of the things that I've been working on/doing.



In a recent guest post on Thenublack, I share four of my favourite things. It was an interesting exercise – thinking about what the four would be. I found it quite hard to pick specific physical items and then I realised, I don't have to! Find out what I picked here


Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal, Newborn and Child Mortality in Africa

Last week we at Asilia were very pleased to launch the website for CARMMA – the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal, Newborn and Child Mortality in Africa. We've been busy working with the African Union and Advocacy International for a couple of months to develop communication materials for the Campaign and I must say it's one of my favourite projects to date.


Film Africa + guest post

Asilia worked with the team at the Royal African Society and SOAS, University of London to design materials for this year's Film Africa festival which ended a little over a week ago. It was once again, a very successful 10 days and the good news is that the festival is now officially an annual one! Here's a guest post I wrote for the Film Africa blog: "Portraying Africa: Questions about Identity, Design and Identity Design".


New Technorati post

One thing that's made the long hours more pleasant is working in Asilia's new office space! After 3+ years of working from home, I am very happy to be commuting again. Don't get me wrong though – working from home was a great experience for me, in many ways. Check out my recent post on Technorati: "How to Survive Working from Home: 5 Tips from an Office Returnee".


I've got a lot of posts in store for you all – thank you for staying tuned!
