Cape Town World Design Capital: We won!

If it wasn’t already clear that Cape Town is the most amazing city to live in, then it became clear this morning when we were announced World Design Capital. And I am more proud than ever to be a Cape Tonian.

Just before 7am local time, the announcement was made in Taipei and Particia de Lille was there to receive the award. “The World Design Capital 2014 title will result in a year-long programme of design-focused events that will see design used for social, economic and cultural transformation. Cape Town’s bid was based on creating an inclusive city by using design thinking in its urban development plans.” This is from the official news report and you can read the full article here.

A very, very proud day for Cape Town. We deserved this. Cape Town wins. Nuf said.
