Design Indaba : Day 1

Design Indaba : Day 1

Attending Design Indaba for the first time is both a lovely experience and such a privilege for us. Indaba is event packed with every moment soaked in inspiration and moments to network and get to know the design community in Africa. I’ll be able to cover most of the event, and whatever I omit – forgive me. I’ll also cover moments of the conference through photography. It allows me to say less and have you be the audience of the event as well.

Unless otherwise stated all the photography is by Barbara Muriungi.
