The designindaba.com strategy is to spread the impact and values of the Design Indaba Conference and Expo throughout the year, which are fundamentally to grow design, to inspire, and to encourage a better world through creativity. The website allows Design Indaba to spread its impact globally, reaching people who are unable to attend Design Indaba events, reinforcing fraternity within the creative industries and increasing local consumer awareness of high-quality design.
