Moving Africa forward with Design

Icsid board member, Mugendi M'Rithaa, a professor at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, recently returned from a trip to Nairobi, Kenya, where the Icsid Executive Board had met for its latest meeting. He discusses with interviewer Michael Mwai the challenges that African designers face from the very definition of design to improvements of design education in Africa.

For June, Icsid reached out to Dr. Mark Evans, Reader in Industrial Design and leader of the Design Research Group at Loughborough Design School, Loughborough University (UK), to share his thoughts on industrial design today and where he thinks the profession is headed.
For the month of June, under the theme #renewID, we look back to classic inventions reinterpreted and improved upon with modern technology.
