My name is Guidione MACHAVA, I’m a World-class Designer

I am  an Entrepreneur, Designer and Author. I have experience leading teams, coaching designers, and creating together products and services that positively impact people’s lives. I work across various industries and sectors, bringing early ideas and concepts to life for World Bank projects, scrappy startups and nonprofits in Africa.

I am also the author of “Design Sutra”, a collection of design principles for designers in the early stages of their careers and founded the World-class Designer School, the home of brightest design minds in Africa, supported by companies such as Webflow, Framer, Shopify and others. I hold a degree in Economics from St. Thomas University in Mozambique and a not concluded Honours in Interaction Design by Open Window in South Africa.

I have recently organised the World-class Designer Conference – Africa’s most diverse and inclusive design conference. Speakers include Debbie Millman, Marty Cagan, Randy Hunt and designers from Google, Facebook, Boeing, Visa & 40+ more. In the past, I was named one of the best community builders in Africa by Google (2018).
