Guide to DI 2012: Emerging Creatives


Ma'Mzansi and Madiba Jive by Emerging Creative Graham Wiles


This year’s Design Indaba is just over a month away and it looks like they have a lot in store. We’ll be bringing you Design Indaba news in the form of a 10and5 Guide to Design Indaba 2012.


At the expo, from the 2nd to the 4th of March, make sure to stop by the Emerging Creatives section. These up and comers were carefully selected as the next big things in design. Courtesy of the Department of Arts and Culture, the selected Emerging Creatives will have full sponsorship to showcase their creative work and are set to earn their national design colours.
