Nelson Mandela Day | 18 July 2014

"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead” 

In honour of Nelson Mandela Day, following is a collection of all things Madiba!

As you drive along the highway into Cape Town, you won't be able to miss the huge portrait of a smiling Madiba! Commissioned by the City of Cape Town and Dreamfuel, Linsey Levendall created an amazing tribute to the legacy of Nelson Mandela.

I really love U2's Ordinary Love music video, which was written for the movie "Mandela : Long Walk to Freedom". It features beautiful lettering by Oliver Jeffers and also features the talents of Mac Premo. Inspiring stuff!
