Design and Creativity

After Office Hours with Diana Opoti

This month we celebrate Art & Design at Nairobi Garage and we are super excited to have business mogul, Diana Opoti for our next After Office Hours session.

Let’s be honest, how many of us think that design and creativity is an airy-fairy concept that is limited to“artsy” companies? We see you!

Picasso said, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”

Jobs told us that what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were artists with different skills who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world. So you see, creativity is the lifeline of business innovation. Long story short- creativity is instrumental! Diana is going to tell us just how this is done.

Diana Opoti is the Founder of concept store, Designing Africa’s Collective, one of Kenya’s most successful startups that got off the ground as an art based fashion company and media company, Artemis Media.The store carries over 40 unique brands owned by independent African designers or brands /collections inspired by the continent’s rich cultural diversity and pulse. Diana not only keeps art alive and inspires fellow artists to do what they love but business is booming and growing each day, sparking competition between the multitude of companies in the industry. Her creativity has proven to be an economic driver.

Diana captivates her 100,000 + followers by applying her extensive experience as a fashion publicity consultant, media professional, and executive producer of the television series, Designing Africa. Diana takes a 360 degrees approach to promoting exquisite African fashion using various mediums including television and digital media. She definitely has our attention!

creative entrepreneur who leads the pack.
