TBWA\Hunt Lascaris upskills designers and creatives at Design Indaba

Last week we attended the Design Indaba, which is a major highlight on the creative calendar in South Africa. With a line-up of speakers ranging from design thinkers, artists, architects and futurists from across the world, this is undoubtedly the hottest ticket in town. This year, three of our designers, Kayla Roelofsz, Itsoseng Matsane, and Sibusiso Mkhwanazi, experienced the Design Indaba for the first time. We asked them what they thought, what moved them, and what they believe are the trends that we as creative businesses should anticipate in the coming year.
