The design team 1+1+1 is in Freetown! At least part of it!

01.02.19

There has been a lot of creativity in the air over the last few days as ideas have been shared, discussions have taken place and laughter and positiveness has surrounded it all. The Design team has been following up on their previous work with various partners in Sierra Leone under the Sweet Salone project. They have been fine tuning older products and having prototypes of new products made.

A film crew from Iceland who are making a documentary about DesignMarch, the Icelandic annual design festival, have been following them every step of the way.

We are super excited to see the new products come to live!
