Madiba Tribute

In the months leading up to Madiba’s death we decided to put together a tribute for the great man.

The outcome is what you see below. After carefully setting the type in the correct shape, the challenge was to colour it correctly so that it would be obvious that it was Madiba—at the same time it needed hold up in print.

If you start reading at the top of the head you’ll be able to read Nelson Mandela’s release speech from the first word to the final full stop.
