Nairobi Design collaborates with local and global communities, organisations and individuals to showcase design.

We're a design agency and annual design festival.

Since 2015, Nairobi Design has been a constant in the design calendar, welcoming thousands of visitors every year, and keeping an engaged community throughout the year.

Nairobi's status as a global design city allows us to showcase design through exhibits, projects and collaborations.

The studio allows us to work on internal projects, such as our podcast Afrika Design, and programmes with partners like African Crossroads, What Design Can Do, World Design Weeks, Design Intelligence Award, and others.

This is all underpinned by our community, where you can find and meet creative individuals and organisations.

Before 2022, Nairobi Design was known as Nairobi Design Week.
