Get Creative With Head On Design

Inspired African design comes to life in the colourful intepretations now available from Head on Design. Visit their website for details and purchase your favourites now on sale.

Drawing on her inspiration from the wire and paper kudu heads being sold on the streets of Cape Town, Joanna Orr, the eco-friendly designer behind Head On Design has added her own twist and flavour on the traditional trophy heads by using a technique of slotting pieces together to create a 3-dimensional form.

2010 was the start of a passion to create something which is not only beautiful but which expresses a current growing awareness of the fragility of our planet, its resources and the need to appreciate our wildlife.

From bamboo and printed kudu heads, to freestanding animals in recycled board, each Head on Design sculpture is carefully designed, hand crafted and then machine cut to get a realistic 3-dimensional form. Head On Design’s products offer style conscious customers modern sculptures for contemporary spaces.

Joanna describes her style as “Afro-chic with an ironic twist – I rarely create anything without some kind of social or environmental commentary – if it were just about aesthetics, what I do would be meaningless to me.”

Head On Design supports the conservation of wildlife, and has researched, promoted and donated to organizations that are doing great work to protect precious natural heritage, such as the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and Blood Lions.

The business also creates the ideal range of products as corporate gifting with various branding options. All products are flat-packed for easy transportation and building the sculptures is very much a part of the experience.

Products can also be tailor-made to suit your company; size, print and material can all be changed.
