Saki Mafundikwa is a speaker and a graphic designer who created the Zimbabwe Institute of Vigital Arts. Mafundikwa is the author of the book 'Afrikan Alphabets.' In 1997 he left his job in New York City to open the 'ZIVA' school.
After leaving home and arriving in America, Saki realized he wanted to be a graphic designer, which was not a profession that he had been aware of in Africa. While he believes that one might have to leave home to find out who they are, he also believes that it's important for people to know about their cultural heritage.
Mafundikwa encourages African graphic design students to look to their history and culture for inspiration.
