Join Creative Cape TownCape Town Design Network and VISI for “Meet the Makers,” a special sneak peek into the inner workings of some of Cape Town’s most dynamic design studios. A select group of innovative Cape Town designers will host exclusive tours of their studios.

During “Meet the Makers”, attendees will have the opportunity to see work in progress and intimately view the environment in which Cape Town designers produce original, thought-provoking creations. This is the perfect opportunity for those interested in design to learn about the different designers, their methodologies and studio culture. Attendees will also receive a fabulous goodie bag courtesy of VISI.

A special “Afternoon at ” event will feature full design collaborative in The Fringe, Cape Town’s Innovation District.

Five uniquely different design companies and a team of freelancing entrepreneurs across various design disciplines are housed in The Bank. Living up to the slogan “creativity exchange”, The Bank is the first entity of its nature in The Fringe where individual companies have clipped into a bigger entity to facilitate the exchange of creative ideas, pooled experience, networking and opportunities.

A fun play on the building’s past, this sturdy piece of pre 1950’s architecture, including a rather impressive vault deep in its foundations was The First National Bank Cape Town Headquarters until it closed its doors in 2005. Today, this bank has been given a second lease on life, and rebranded accordingly, but with creativity as its commodity, not South African Rands.
