Konga Graphic Design Challenge 2015

Konga.com is Nigeria’s largest online mall. We launched in July 2012 and our mission is to become the engine of ecommerce and trade in Africa.

At Konga.com, our creative designers and strategists work in a fast paced environment and are faced with an eclectic range of challenging design briefs, with creative outcomes expected within strict timelines. As we help to oil the gears of commerce in Africa we are on the lookout for creative minds with indepth design skills which include but not limited to, illustrations, creative graphic designs, animations, UI/UX, html, php and visual composition. Our participatory and mentorship approach will help you develop research, analysis, evaluation skills and self-criticism skills.

We call on you to participate in our design challenge and in return you would be given the opportunity of joining the best design team in Nigeria gaining valuable exposure to visual communication, advertising and other commercial creative arts. Is your creative ‘Kung Fu’ good enough? Step right up and show us what you’ve got.

It’s the beginning of the year and we are looking to start a campaign on Clearance Sales on the Fashion, Electronics and Mobile phones categories offering our customers a whopping ‘up to 70% discount’ on all items purchased. Konga.com is known for its affordable retail merchandise and this is the first big shopping event in Nigeria. This campaign will be promoted digitally (online) using click ads (web banner ads), on-site banners and outdoor advertising.
