Graphic identity for the charity, Jangala.

In 2015 Jangala installed its first prototype Wi-Fi network in the informal camp near Calais, France. While active, the improvised network provided free Internet access to the camps’ estimated 7,000 residents, who otherwise had to rely on costly data-packages.

Since Calais, Jangala has evolved into a charity, developing low-cost Internet access systems for use in emergency situations around the world.
