We’re the leaders of excellence in design-led thinking on the continent. We aim to empower people from all walks of life to use a design thinking mindset, and to enable the creation of human-centered solutions in an ever-changing world.
But that’s just a fancy way of saying:
Anyone can be a design thinker.It comes down to adopting a creative problem-solver mindset. Our mission is to promote this mindset shift by making design thinking accessible to everyone and a standard practice everywhere.
To do this, we focus on:
Experiential training on real-world projects and challenges.
Training, supporting, and guiding the practical application of design thinking within organisational structures, i.e. looking at organisational transformational aspects of design thinking.
Staying on top of design thinking trends and its application to ensure relevance.
Developing case studies that document the application and impact of design thinking.
Embedded in every Afrikan home language is the use of the letter ‘k’ in the name Afrika. We choose to recognise our continent with its original spelling, allowing it to remain true to its identity, history, and people.
