DESIGN INDABA CAMPAIGN WINS AT LOERIES
The Jupiter Drawing Room picked up eight awards in the recent Loeries for the Design Indaba Creativity Can campaign, including three silvers in the Mixed Media Campaign, Through-the-Line Communication and Radio categories.
Tsai will join the other 10 finalists from around the world for a 12-day tour of the British design industry in September, culminating in a visit to 100% Design and the announcement of the overall winner. The winner will receive a financial prize, as well as their own stand at 100% Design 2009.
Also winner of a Red Dot Design Award in 2007, Tsai says: ''South Africa has a lot of need for design-orientated solutions in the low-cost housing area for example, and designers therefore need to come up with design solutions on a mass scale, but there are a lot of entrepreneurial elements that need to go into it as well.''
WORD FROM THE DESIGN INDABA EXHIBITORS
Grandt Mason, owner of g-mo, also reports that he met an investor through the Design Indaba Expo. Helping to fund the factory setup, the investment will provide jobs for six households. “It’s an awesome thing you guys are doing - keep up the sterling work,” says Mason.
