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.
