On Friday 15th February 2019, DKS held a special AGM at Jumuia Coffee House Nairobi. It was a time of recollection and sharing stories of success and challenges over the last nine years since inception.
Major highlights of the last nine years include:
• Nairobi International Design conference 2011 – NIDEC 2011
• Nairobi International Design conference 2017 – NIDEC 2011
• Typography Kenya 2018 – Typo2018
NIDEC 2011, was instrumental in beginning the focus for the design bill and the call for the establishment of Design Department in government. At Typo2018 Prof Maringa announced the bill has been passed and the Department of Design has been established and is operational in the State Department of Public Works, Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing & Development.
The highlight of the meeting was the election of an interim committee to spearhead operations. The team is made up of Mr. Sam Malaki as Chair, Ms. Julia Kamuiro as Treasurer and Mr. Mike Muiya as the Secretary.
