about us

We are the Hasso Plattner School of Design Thinking in Afrika at the University of Cape Town. That's a mouthful, right? In short, we are known as d-school Afrika.

We're the leaders of excellence in design-led thinking on the continent. We aim to empower people from all walks of life to use a design thinking mindset, and to enable the creation of human-centred solutions in an ever-changing world.

But that's just a fancy way of saying: We teach you how to REFRAME, RETHINK and RESOLVE real-world problems.

We focus on:

  • Experiential training on real-world projects and challenges.
  • Training, supporting, and guiding the practical application of design thinking within organisational structures, i.e. looking at organisational transformational aspects of design thinking.
  • Staying on top of design thinking trends and its application to ensure relevance.
  • Developing case studies that document the application and impact of design thinking.
