Talking Heads is a multi–layered, knowledge-sharing platform conceived to identify, showcase, network and expose Africa’s thought leaders. It profiles the ideas, visions and manifestations of the extraordinary people living on the African continent.
The main purpose of the website is to serve as an archive of information – speaker bios, audiocasts, videos and articles. The challenge lay in creating a way for the visitor to intuitively navigate this vault of content.
The website aims to visually reflect the ideals and personality of the organisation. The images have a gritty treatment, echoing the often-difficult topics that the organisation deals with. This is contrasted with large areas of clean and open content, which speaks to the sophistication and intelligence with which issues are tackled.
