Winning Print: The Populist

Populist, the winning Bold Print of the Year, takes inspiration from the pioneering spirit of Desiderius Pongrácz. Embedded in the print is a secret code – EOIC 3ULD – which when folded up translates to BOLD. The print also draws on military camouflage print to signify bravery and pays homage to the truly South African Shangaan Bag.
