Our Design Expo Highlights

{Marvelous March} We’re so excited March is here & to kick-it-off we have some highlights to share with you from this years Design Indaba experience.

Schwarzie 2014 Diary

{The Dine Around} Every year during Design Indaba Adams & Adams Attorneys have a Dine Around where they invite an elite guest list of people to chat about creativity, enjoy a beautiful venue while networking with some rather-incredible-people. Last year we attended our 1st dine around where we not only met  Christoph Niemann well known for his visual essays appearing in the New York Times; but we were also awarded the prize to be Trademarked by Adams & Adams. “What could top that?” we thought before attending this years Dine Around.

The guests are always a pleasant surprise & we were thrilled when we found out that DJ Stout, one of the Partners at Pentagram and his lovely wife Lana from Blast Marketing & PR were at the function. It wasn’t long before we found ourselves standing in an impromptu-brainstorming session talking about how naming work is one of the hardest things a designer often has to do. Alongside us were the likes of Martin Doller and Freda Theron of Brand New World, Mariette Du Plessis of Adams & Adams, among others: people you want to be in a circle with.

{The Expo} The Design Expo itself held its own collection of highlights, one that shines the brightest is that we had been chosen to be represented on the Adams & Adams stand. We may not have exhibited this year but we were present: did we mention earlier “What could top that?”. This feature was just another silver-lining reminder that being dreamers & doers of what we love certainly brings in fruits fused with blessings. Here are a few of the “Schwarzie Survival” kits we made for the team working the Adams & Adams stand over the 4 day event, a tiny thank-you token for being so energetic all through the event.

{Our Story} We’ll sum this post up with a close up of how Adams & Adams presented us at their stand. ‘We can’t thank you enough team, the way you’ve connected with us over the past year is priceless to us, you are the kinds of people we love.
