Youth Design Studio in the WDC2014 Pitch Session!

Hey there!

If you’ve been keeping up with us via Facebook, Twitter, or our blog, you know that we pitched Youth Design Studio to a crowd of participants, supporters and staff of Thundafund and the Cape Town World Design Capital 2014 back in February. In fact, we wrote a blog all about our experience putting together our Youth Design Studio pitch for the pitch session!

Well, in case you were curious about how it turned out, we finally managed to get the video on here!! Our cameraman didn’t have enough time to set up properly, so the angle is a little weird and the focus goes in and out sometimes, but if you read our blog and want to see how the actual pitch went, or if you’re just curious about Youth Design Studio, check it out!  It’s a fun in-person overview of the project, with some one-of-a-kind flair thrown in (ie. Julie in the background, building the letters for “Youth Design Studio” out of low-cost and recycled materials)!

Enjoy!
