Here at the Design Institute we are passionate about design. We believe that design coupled with innovative entrepreneurship is the key to changing a community and changing a country. Design is the key for us to produce products from our raw materials instead of just exporting them (only to import the finish product again). Entrepreship and innovative business strategies will give our designers the edge on manufacturing, distribution, marketing, and everything that is needed to get South African products into the hands of people across the globe, centering us as a design leader whilst building our economy, creating jobs and opportunities
This is why we are super excited about the Moving Ideas Competition from Transnet.
