Jenna Skead as a Emerging Creative at the 2015 Design Indaba Expo

Jenna Skead’s children’s concept store is definitely one of the most adorable stands at this years Design Indaba. Inspired by her very own children’s book titled “The Things We Lost at Sea” her stand extends the concept of exploring with hidden treasures, ready to be discovered throughout the stand.

With beautiful pastel illustration of tiny explorers filling the walls, you are immediately drawn in. You then see the characters come alive with hats, socks and dresses spread across the stand. Her idea for the concept store stems from a child on an adventure, to see the Big Five in South Africa.
