Via Cape Town ready for World Design Capital judges on BizCommunity:
From Sunday 24 July until Tuesday 26 July 2011, the World Design Capital judges will be in Cape Town, assessing its potential to be the World Design Capital in 2014. It is contending with Bilbao in Spain and Dublin in Ireland, for the title.
As part of a full city welcome, Cape Town will decked out in celebratory yellow - the official colour of the city's World Design Capital campaign, starting with Table Mountain. The mountain began its first yellow light glow at 6pm on the night of Wednesday 20 July. The trunks of 100 trees in Heerengracht Street will be wrapped in World Design Capital colours and a fleet of Green Cabs' low carbon emission vehicles will temporarily be going yellow, as they ferry the judges around town.
