Take Five
The lookbook of talent emerging in the field of illustration most captured the attention of readers this week.


Topping off our most popular features was this Lookbook of five illustrators who will bring both their sketchbooks and their talents to Design Indaba Expo 2015 as Emerging Creatives.


Next up was our announcement of the full list of selected Emerging Creatives for 2015, which included this Lookbook of three young fashion designers with diverse aesthetics.


Also popular was our exclusive interview with Kenyan artist and filmmaker Ng’endo Mukii, whose latest film pays tribute to 50 years of Kenyan independence.


This was the week when we announced the first musician to perform at Design Indaba Music 2015 - Ghanaian wordsmith and rapper M.anifest. Fresh off a tour with Damon Albarn in South America, he took some time out to chat with us about returning home to Ghana from the US, the dangers of selling out as an artist and how the rest of the world sees Africa in this interview


Rounding out the top five stories of the week was this final Lookbook of rising talents in jewellery design, who work with materials such as pastel painted copper, cast coral, driftwood, pebbles, wrought-iron and black diamonds.
