About us

The Conté Magazine, is more than just a creative portfolio, it allows the reader to be involved in the creative process, to make the transition from consumer and viewer to creator and enthusiast. It allows a space for artists to work together and sharpen each other’s tools. Really, we are all about changing the way we work together, we are quite excited about this adventure, and we’d like to invite you along.

“Our mantra is all about collaboration and some of the country’s best Illustrators; fine artists; graphic designers; animators; architects; interior designers; poets; photographers and Fashion designers, have come together to capture and create together and the result has been extraordinary, with each artist contributing a piece of that little something that makes them true visionaries in their respective fields. This is no ordinary feature but it is a vision tied in to seeding growth and innovation in the collective creative space and laying a foundation for improved skill and talent across the board, something we can all work towards”

Conté is now driving creative collaboration amongst creative individuals from all fields by featuring them in their Magazine,both on a print and digital platform. The Conté Magazine is a platform for young and old African artists to collaborate with each other and to sharpen one’s skills. With the digital and the print platforms both having different content, we believe we will always keep our audience enticed.

Our Mission

“Moving forward, Conté’s mission is to expand its leadership role in the creative market, using groundbreaking creative solutions and also expanding creative collaboration by using The Conté Magazine”

The Founders


Amanda Sibiya (blue), an enthusiastic and passionate creative designer completed a diploma in
Multimedia: Integrated Fine Art, Animation and Graphic Design from The Centre for Fine Art and Design in Durban.

Charmaine Ngobeni (pink), a highly talented, driven and flexible creative designer completed a Degree in Illustration and Digital Imagery from Parsons The New School of Design in New York.

Both Amanda and Charmaine have a passion for the creative industry and do not want to be limited to only being either fashion, graphic or interior designer which is why the both call themselves “creative designers”. What brought them together was their desire to see more Creatives collaborate with each other to change how people currently think of the creative industry, this being the reason why they started their own company.
