One of the unique things about PADI is diversity. We are open to people of varied backgrounds who have a strong affinity for design and not only those who work within the design industry.
Each member type takes into account the current needs and interest of the member within the context of our vision.
Below are the various categories of membership and their requirement
In many Afrikan countries, the governing bodies that support individual designers do not exists – so they have no place to go to, or no support mechanisms to help them drive their design, or add weight to the value of what it is that they do. We want to provide those support mechanisms – there is safety in numbers.
Schools determine the future standard of design in Afrika. Schools (through design output and research) – offer the platform to communicate to international audiences (at conferences, and through other international design bodies). Schools can help us (through research) – to better understand the socio, environmental and economic landscapes of Afrika.
