Events: It's Nice That to media partner with Design Indaba 2014

Media Partner Article,

2014 is a big year for Cape Town. Not only does it follow Helsinki as World Design Capital, but its flagship festival of creativity Design Indaba celebrates its 20th anniversary. And so we are delighted to announce that It’s Nice That has joined forces as a media partner for this year’s conference, generally regarded as one of the most inspirational around.

Editor-in-Chief Rob Alderson will be heading out to the conference at the end of February to report on the goings-on and to interview some of the stellar line-up of speakers, which this year includes Stefan Sagmeister, Thomas Heatherwick and Lauren Beukes. With more than 20 nationalities represented on the bill and an emphasis on presentations which go beyond the traditional conference format, it’s sure to be an exciting and enlightening few days.

Alongside the conference the Design Indaba Expo will take place again – the biggest curated design showcase in the Southern Hemisphere – as well as a film festival and a series of live music events.

Tickets are still available for the Design Indaba conference which takes place from 26 February to the 28 – visit the website for more information. Looking forward to seeing some of you in Cape Town!

    Design Indaba is one of the most eclectic creative conferences around and the first day in Cape Town did not disappoint. It’s hard to distill so much design wisdom into a round-up but here’s a few of the highlights as we saw them from the first day in South Africa.

    There is now just over a week to go until the 2015 Design Indaba conference kicks off in Cape Town. As media partner It’s Nice That will be there throughout the three-day inspiration bing, bringing you the best visuals and most interesting ideas shared from the stage. The full-line-up has now been confirmed and here’s our pick of ten (plus one for luck) of the talks we’re particularly looking forward to listening to. You can also access talks from previous years on the Design Indaba website.

    As CEO of Wolff Olins, Ije Nwokorie is well-versed in the creative landscape; the forces that shape it and in turn how it shapes our world. Describing himself as “born in the US, bred in Nigeria and enlightened in England” he also has a global sensibility that sets him apart from many of his peers.

    Last year’s excellent Design Indaba conference in Cape Town saw dozens of speakers take to the stage over the course of three days of creative insight and enlightenment. The videos of the talks are in the throes of being released over on the Design Indaba site which got us feeling all nostalgic about the raft of great stuff we saw. The conference was full of memorable moments – from Thomas Heatherwick announcing the opening of a new art museum in Cape Town to Stefan Sagmeister leading the hall in song – but this is a personal selection of some of our highlights.

    It’s Nice That is delighted to confirm that we’ll be media partnering with Design Indaba in Cape Town for a second year in 2015. The conference in February brings together thousands of delegates and a stellar line-up of speakers in the South African capital for several days of creative inspiration. And although this year’s line-up has not been released yet in full, we do know that among those taking to the stage will be ad-land legend Dan Wieden, exciting thinker Dominic Wilcox, innovative Dutch duo Studio Formafantasma and animator Ng’endo Mukii.

    I have spent many hours chasing speakers around conference venues truing to secure interviews. It’s always frustrating; it can be fruitless. So at this year’s amazing Design Indaba in Cape Town, we decided to do something a little different, and when we asked speakers if they had “ a spare five minutes” we literally meant it. Five Minutes With… does exactly what it says on the tin; take great creative minds, ask them a range of questions (some silly, some more serious) and bring it all to an end around the five minute mark.
