I am Slaying Goliath

I am David Tshabalala, a graphic designer and illustrator best known for my Run The World and Davetionary series. Run The World was a series that payed homage to women I’m inspired by, both young and old, who do amazing work. I profiled these inspiring women during Women’s Month to commemorate and celebrate their slay. The series lasted between 2014 and 2017. The Davetionary is commentary on topical issues, serving as a contemporary visual narrative of the world.

My ever-evolving style is quirky and humorous, with a particular focus on social commentary.  One of my proudest moments was making it to the Mail and Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans list in 2015. Being chosen as a jury member for the Art Directors Club 98th  Annual Awards in 2019 is another proud moment. The Loeries also invited me to be on their judging panel in 2019.

My work is mostly inspired by pop culture and everyday people. The relationships I form with people in the ‘real’ and digital world are my biggest source of inspiration, the insights gained from daily social interactions with people is invaluable to my work. When I’m not being superstar illustrator Slaying Goliath, I run my own branding & design agency Suketchi, with business partner Sarah-Jane Boden.
