You don't need a holiday, you need Cape Town
We think this official slogan of Cape Town Tourism sums it up. As most of our design studios are based in the beautiful city of Cape Town, also affectionately known as the Mother City, here’s a few things not to miss!

Cape Town Design Capital of the Year 2014
In 2014, Cape Town was World Design Capital of the Year.
The central theme behind the city’s successful bid,
“Live Design. Transform Life”, focused on the role that design can play in social transformation in the city.
Have a look at the inspiring bid video for Cape Town WDC2014. For more info visit their website.
Design Indaba & Conference
Design Indaba is a 100% local-is-lekker celebration of South Africa’s ingrained creativity. Advertising, architecture, craft, décor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design, jewellery, new media, publishing, product design and visual media, are all presented. Setting a high curatorial standard, all products are original, contemporary and innovative, not to mention conceived and manufactured in South Africa.

Biblionef South Africa, a children's book agency based in Cape Town, was founded by former ambassador Max Vegelin van Claerbergen. The organisation provides brand-new books in all 11(!) official South African languages. I was happy to volunteer with them in 2010. The books, including books in braille, are donated to needy children's schools, hospitals and libraries in townships, informal settlements and in remote rural areas throughout South Africa. Please help us in supporting their 1 Million Books Campaign for 2016.
