Design Indaba Day Two

Our favourite quotes from the second day of Design Indaba 2014. 1. As designers, where we are from is important. You can get lost in trying to be global. It's important to understand who you are and where you're from - DJ Stout, partner at Pentagram, USA 2. If something is that pretty,  you have to eat it! - South African chef Margot Janse on a photograph of her eating daffodils as a child. 3. Embrace instability. This is not a stable world, you have to be flexible to be able to move around - Michel Rojkind, architect, Mexico 4. Know what you want even when you don't know where you want to go - Marcello Serpa, partner and creative director at AlmapBBDO, Brazil 5. Design starts to get interesting when our needs and the needs of the public converge - Stefan Scholten, co-founder and product designer at Scholten & Baijings, Netherlands
