High five! Design Indaba Conference is sold out. Again. For the fifth year running. What can we say?
“It’s gratifying to see that businesses realise that it will take innovation and creativity to navigate through a tougher economic climate,” says Ravi Naidoo, Design Indaba founder and CEO. “Now more than ever, the world needs creative solutions. There’s never a bad time for a good idea.”

In light of the continued demand for tickets, Design Indaba is lifting the age restriction on the Young Designers Simulcast. For the reduced price of R1200 delegates older than 25 can enjoy this simulcast of the foremost creative event in the country. The simulcast is a live broadcast, from the main plenary session to a second auditorium.

Besides the speakers who have already been announced, Design Indaba is also pleased to add Dwayne Spradlin, CEO of Innocentive Inc to the line-up, as well as leading commercials director Keith Rose. Further, a combined presentation on the best South African animation includes Craig Wessels from Wicked Pixels, Roger Smythe from Masters&Savant and Jannes Hendrikz from the Blackheart Gang.

For a glimpse into what the future of design will look like, Design Indaba has curated a programme of the best design graduates from the Royal College of Art in London, Design Academy Eindhoven, ECAL University of Art and Design in Lausanne, Rhode Island School of Design, University of Johannesburg and University of Pretoria.
