Launched in 1995, the Design Indaba is an internationally acclaimed event that brings together some of the world's top creatives.

This year, the event takes place at the Cape Town Convention Centre incorporating multicultural experiences. Each year the event hosts more than 40 speakers and over 4 000 delegates.

Has the Indaba contributed to South African design?

Founder of the event, Ravi Naidoo says that while the Indaba has grown from a conference to include an expo and a music festival South African corporates need to incorporate more design and innovation.

It's the last day of the design spectacular, so be sure to pop in and catch some of the amazing events still to come at the Design Indaba 2015.
