Thanks for visiting Nairobi Design Week! 🥳

😷COVID-19 update: To avoid over-saturating our audience with content about the coronavirus pandemic, below you will see it compiled into several articles, which will be kept updated in the coming weeks.

We encourage you to take advantage of the ‘physical distancing’ time to digitally catch up with friends & family, do ‘spring cleaning’ and create those things you didn’t have an opportunity for.

OUR WORK

COMMUNITY

Above everything else, we focus on our community, and learning from them.

All year round, we create content and share community news on this website and our other digital platforms, support events and exhibits, facilitate workshops and more.

FESTIVAL

Once a year, we bring the community together to learn about their work under that year’s leading theme.

The festival is a celebration of their achievements, and a platform to start or continue short and long term projects.

AGENCY

We focus on working with a small number of clients, who value our approach to discovering and solving problems through design thinking and creative direction.

Creative talent is sourced from the community to support these projects.

STUDIO

Our love for design, and experience across the creative industries has led us to develop several standalone projects with community partners.

These include the Refugees’ Pavilion at the London Design Biennale 2018 and The Urban Residency, with others in the pipeline.
