Sankofa Arts and Music Foundation


Web Design & Branding

Sankofa Arts is a non-profit organization based in Calgary that celebrates Black youths in the arts. Their programming focuses on creating a space for diversity, inclusion, and acceptance. I volunteered my time to this organization to help expand their reach by designing their logo and website.


Branding

With Sankofa’s expanding reach, they needed an updated logo that reflected their cultural ties. Key elements of this logo included:

“Sankofa”, a symbol of a bird and egg used by the Akan people of Ghana. It represents reaching into the past for knowledge and bringing it into the present.

The colours of the Ghana flag, represented by the red, yellow, and green strips and star.
