Ubuntuism is one of those brands so selective and cool that simply wearing one of their shirts will make you want to be a better person. From the rugged and afrocentric photos they put out, to their website that is in awe of people that live out the African ideal of “I am because we are.”, It is safe to say this T-shirt company has got it going on.

One of the most refreeshing Social Media Campaigns we have come across so far, from Ithaca college, African students are using great photography and gorgeous pictures to break stereotypes. We first found them on twitter and could not resist sending them a message to let them know how much their work is appreciated, you should do the same https://twitter.com/ICAfrican

Check out the African Digital Art site. This trendy online space featuring everything from colourful posters to fashion trends is the brainchild of the Kenyan digital artist known as Jepchumba. Her passion for Africa’s arts scene has translated into a network of young (mostly African) creatives who are “pushing Digital Boundaries” in every way possible, and we love the way they are going about it!

Jepchumba made it onto the Forbes list of 20 Youngest Power Women in 2012, testament to the fact that the world is ready for this new brand of artists who are taking over Africa with their own refreshing brand of cool .
