Andile Dyalvane is one of four local creatives featured in Brand South Africa’s new film series, “Making it uniquely South Africa”. The series showcases emerging and established entrepreneurs across different creative industries that have found opportunities, utilised their skills and manufactured products that promote Nation Brand pride and competitiveness.
The importance of showcasing these individuals puts the spotlight on the country’s creative and multiskilled craftspeople. It encourages buying locally-produced products which result in job creation and a strengthened economy.
“We are continuously finding solutions to drive economic growth by showcasing inspiring new ways of creativity in different industries… We want the world to take note and see how South Africans are remarkable. The series is anchored on the notion that we are all responsible in constructing a positive narrative we want the world to hear,” said Sithembile Ntombela, Brand South Africa’s General Manager for Marketing.
The series airs on Brand South Africa’s social media platforms and media channels such as Soweto TV. In the film, Andile shares his story of what shaped his work and makes it recognisably South African. The series also features Thabiso Mjo, founder of Mash.T Design Studio, who won the Future Found Award at the 2017 Design Foundation Awards.
