Are you producing compelling, original three-dimensional work and have reached a turning point in your career? Lift Club is the Design Foundation’s new initiate established to dynamise your design company and provide the skills you need to shift things up a gear.
Lift Club represents a firm and on-going commitment by the Foundation to foster excellence and to help designers flourish in South Africa. The Lift Club mentorship programme is aimed at early career development, presenting an opportunity to learn from our circle of experienced industry experts, at a critical stage in a designer’s career.
Mentors are recognised leaders in the industry who’ve agreed to participate in the quarterly round-table sessions, to address individual needs and impart their invaluable business savvy and insights on among others, product development, more efficient manufacturing processes, commercial structures, branding or finding better routes to market.
The Foundation will select 10 candidates in Johannesburg and 10 in Cape Town, from submitted applications to the programme, who it feels would best benefit from attending these sessions. Applicants need to show that they are already producing and selling original work, are hardworking and ambitious and having reached a turning point in their careers, are ready for the next step. Most importantly, candidates need to show a willingness to gear up their business practices and how they could benefit from the shared experiences, know-how and success stories of industry experts.
