Website Content

Over the past year, the Design Indaba website has undergone a radical overhaul. The website functions as a comprehensive design portal for news, videos, image galleries, speaker talks, projects, events and more, and provides added value to sponsors in the events section. With already more than 3 000 pieces of content relating to the South African and international design industry, and over 600 bespoke videos, the website positions Design Indaba in the international arena as a powerful global player.

The visitors are representative of 209 countries, with the most traffic being from South Africa (37%), followed by the United States, United Kingdom, Netherlands, India, Germany, France, Brazil, Canada, Australia and Italy. Our audience profile sits between LSMs 7 and 10. Overall, the site received 23% direct traffic, 31% from referring sites and 46% through organic search engine traffic sources.

Web Strategy

The 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.
