Design Garage – Kampala Design Week

Home » Design Garage – Kampala Design Week


The Kampala Design Week unfolded from November 27th to December 1st, 2023 and attracted over 370 participants across its programing. It showcased a multifaceted exploration of design, its applications, and its influence on the cultural and creative industries. The event’s narrative was woven through studio tours, expert panels, and innovative technology showcases, underscoring the theme “Crafting Communities, Cultivating Growth.”

We were so happy to partner with KDW and host their Design Garage on 28th November at our GZK Basement. Two mechanics shared with the participants how they create their work and what knowledge they have gathered over the years. Enerst Lusambu, a Brand Designer, broke down the process of creating the distinct rebrand of Kampala Design Week. Edwin Nyaika, a content creator, talked about craft of communicating compelling stories for brands and individuals.

Overall the Design Garage re-ignited the design community need to continuously meet and
support each other on the journey to be better designers and solve the city’s pressing

We hope to see you all again next year!
