Design Indaba 2011 | A better world through creativity

The mother city plays host to Design Indaba 2011, leading with the caption of creating a better world through creativity. It’s two days in with the big DI party this evening and really I’m sitting with a lot of mixed feelings about the speakers – don’t get me wrong, I have all the respect in the world for these men and women, just at times it seems difficult to identify how some of their work is creating a better world through design.

I absolutely enjoyed Michael Wolff, simple – plain – to the point. He makes a good point in highlighting how design can bring value to people.

The other two people who I enjoyed were Charlie Todd and Alberto Alessi. Charlie Todd who has almost made a living out of being different through humor. His creative flair to causing trouble is an inspiration.

Alberto Alessi for me, rescued a disappointing day 2. Day 1 started on a massive high and left the delegates wanting more on the same power level. Several speakers on day 2 were good but again it was more about the wow factor which was lacking. Alberto Alessi went through the family business history and displayed what makes his skills so unique.

So what remains?

The DI party and day 3 for me and then it’s back to Jozi.
