Nairobi Design Institute

The Nairobi Design Institute has created a program for a new generation of designers who want to address user experience challenges and big global social issues using new ideas, tools, and methods. Our students work in teams across disciplines, gain insights from industry leaders and emerge with a portfolio of projects showcasing design as a process for transforming the way we live in the 21st century.

Are you ready to immerse yourself in your creative purpose? We are looking for 16 creative, curious, fearless leaders who believe in the power of design to tackle the challenges ahead.

Applications to our Full-Stack Design Programme are processed on a first-come, first served basis, we, therefore, encourage applicants to apply as soon as they are ready to submit their applications. We are excited to get to know you and to explore your potential and passions!


NDI is a design school where people of different cultural, professional and social backgrounds learn practically how to apply various design disciplines when approaching and solving challenges through collaborative efforts. By leveraging each other’s diverse experience, students are able to challenge each other to critically think and come up with innovative solutions.

NDI employs a user-centered approach when tackling challenges which allows fellows to immerse themselves in different communities and develop empathy for the people they are trying to serve. By getting to understand their users’ needs fellows are able to design interventions that are meaningful and impactful.

Our trainers are both local and international industry experts with multiple years of experience working within the design industry. Through the different modules, fellows are able to master the thinking, tools and processes essential for the future of design; understanding complex human needs and behaviors, processes that enable customer satisfaction and a methodology that equips designers with the foresight to design for impact and scale.
