Updates to Jozi Design


Do you have paper?.. a blade? and some free time to make a piggy?
If you do, then watch my hands...

An experimental collaboaration between Martin Bolton www.jozidesign.co.za and Jonathan Eva, Slinky Production.

Sidenote: If you are disgruntled because there isn't enough information to fold the piggy- then visit this website:

Welcome to Jozi Design.

The purpose of this website is to serve as a platform for the presentation of products designed within Johannesburg, South Africa. The majority of presented designs are the outcomes of ideas originated in the mind of Johannesburg based Product Designer, Martin Bolton, as well as collaborative input from various contributors. Some designs are commissioned as one-offs, and some are the outcomes of freelance product design. Photographs are all taken in and around Jozi, and fit into no specific photographic genre. All outcomes, design and photographic, are aimed at sparking thought, initiating discussion, and showcasing product design inspired by Jozi town.
