Part of the Project
Design Indaba, Dutch Design Week and World Design Event are just days away from launching one of the most exciting new platforms for young designers.
It has taken months of hard work, but we are finally ready to reveal the results of our global scan for 21 of the best young design graduates.
This first Antenna event on 20 October 2017 is the opportunity for design professionals, experts and innovative companies to get in touch with the top talents of the world.
Antenna wants to build a worldwide network of antennae, connecting the dots between talents on different continents, working across disciplines and with experts and professionals acting almost as a patron for these conversations, exchanges and possible collaborations.
We have already introduced you to 15 of the talents who will join us on stage, now meet the rest of the candidates:
Sarah Wisniewska is a Communication Design graduate from the School of Form at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poznań, Poland.
Her project Dissolving Memory was inspired by her family friend who has Dementia and suffers from memory loss. She designed a book that makes it possible for everyone to understand what it feels like for people who have Dementia.
Thandiwe Msebenzi is a Michaelis School of Fine Art graduate who uses her photography to look at art and design as resistance. She deals with issues around rape culture, the silencing of women and her daily experiences as a young black woman in Cape Town.
