From point to point.
That’s the point.

The brand name ‘Jurni’, is inspired by the initiative’s vision to connect travellers with destinations. The word Jurni implies exploration, voyages of discovery and freedom of movement from one place to another.

The bold line in the brandmark is symbolic of a travel route from one point to another, as a metaphor for connection and movement, signifying how Jurni connects travellers and destinations. Being a South African initiative, the colour palette was inspired by the vibrant colours of the South African flag, with the intention of the colours not looking overtly the same as the flag. The visual language is intended for use across various platforms from an app icon to digital and corporate stationery.
