The PADI/ Design Nigeria Education Symposium is a timely response to the desperate call for a more organised and professional design practice in Nigeria. For Design to become and remain a highly respected discipline in Nigeria, designers across all design disciplines must come together, work together, and speak with a unified voice. Design education is critical. In the first ever Design Nigeria Education Symposium, we bring together design practitioners, design educators, design thinkers, design enthusiasts, and students of design, both in Nigeria and the diaspora to explore the landscape of design education in Nigeria and its impact on professional design practice. Our focus for this first edition is Graphics Communication design.
