RMIT students present the work of Chaz Maviyane-Davies
...
Chaz Maviyane-Davies was my teacher for a very short time. He was coming to the Massachusetts College of Art at a point where I was already running from design. I guess his arrival only slowed the retreat since I lingered in the department another year, curious as to what the new guy had to say. I learned a lot about design and social responsibility from him. And that he was from Zimbabwe resonates with me more deeply now that my partner is also in exile from a country as terrible.
This week students presented their research on design, ethics and social responsibility. And I thought of Chaz again and how I felt as a student. Inspired but lost.

Chaz Maviyane-Davies has been described by the UK's Design magazine as "the guerrilla of graphic design". For more than two decades the award-winning, controversial designer's powerful work has taken on issues of consumerism, health, nutrition, social responsibility, the environment and human rights.
He has studied (MA, the Central School of Art and Design in London) and worked in Britain, Japan, Malaysia, the US and Zimbabwe, his country of origin. From 1983 until recently he ran the renowned design studio in Harare, Zimbabwe, The Maviyane-Project.
Due to adverse political conditions in his homeland and the confrontational nature of his work, Maviyane-Davies moved to the USA in 2001, where he is currently a Professor of Design at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. As well as being published in numerous books, international magazines and newspapers, his work has been exhibited extensively and is included in several permanent collections at various galleries.
