Afrigator Logo and Website Design

As most South African bloggers, and South African blog readers, know Afrigator Alpha launched in the first week of April. Afrigator is a blog aggregator for the African continent. News about the launch has flown around the blogosphere and already a large amount of blogs have signed up with the service.I was approached by Mike Stopforth and Justin Hartman 4 days before the leak of the news of the launch, and requested to design a logo for the website, as well as a branded interface. Over the weekend I agonised over colour combinations, font types, and vector aligator sketches and came up with the end result that is now being broadcasted over the blogosphere.

I must say it is quite awesome to see my badges plastered over African blogs and read the stories of people who have raved about the system, and its design. There is still much work to be done for the Beta launch, but working alongside Mike and Justin is a pleasure.

  11. The Afrigator logo is very clean, very smooth and it blends in together nicely with the website design and that’s why I thinks it’s a great logo. After looking at your portfolio I’ll definitely be watching for your future designs.
