Graduates of Graphic Design and Illustration at Stellenbosch University, Jan Solms and Rohan Etsebeth go under the name of Fanakalo and are the artistic talent behind The Liberator. Incidentally, the word Fanakalo is derived from the name of a pidgin language based on Zulu, English, and Afrikaans. It is used as a lingua franca in the gold, diamond, coal and copper mining industries of South Africa, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Liberator’s right-hand man comes in the form of Haumann Smal Design Studio, wine branding specialists in South Africa.

Grape. South Africa’s independent wine viewpoint.
This is the on-line version of the ‘bible’ of the South African wine industry; Platter’s South African Wines. This annual guide simultaneously acts as Rick’s phone directory, map book and restaurant guide, as well as proffering notes on some 6,000 current releases. Don’t leave home without it.
Wine magazine. Published monthly.
Wines of South Africa (WOSA) is a not-for-profit industry organisation which promotes the exports of all South African wine in key international markets.
