Welcome To Cape Town Legends

The Travel Designer team bring you Cape Town Legends, a creative project with the express purpose of showcasing some of the Mother City’s most renowned and inspiring residents. It brings you the city’s best innovators, creatives, trailblazers and game changers to life) with the idea of introducing them and the work that they do, as inspiration for others.

The project is a long standing dream of Travel Designer’s Ozzy, a consummate connecter of beautiful people who has an established reputation for the magic that he brings to the local travel industry. Having connected with larger than life characters over the past years while working in Cape Town, and taking their stories as the gift that drove him to follow his passion, this is a way of saying thank you, and giving back.

Filming has begun with an initial core group of Cape Town Legends identified and invited to offer insight into what drives them to do what they do.

Zapiro, Honest Chocolate, the SA Barista Champion Winston Thomas, award winning artist and animator Ree Treweek. Jade de Waal of Food Jams, Mak1One, internationally recognised street artist and Oranjezicht City Farm and Market’s founder Sheryl Ozinsky, among them.

With thanks to all who make this city – and the world, a better place! Should you know of a hero in our city that we should be showcasing, drop us a mail at info@capetownlegends.com and tell us more.
