From brainstorming sessions to crafting real-life brand campaigns that tell a story, these stars have certainly set the standard for the future of branding, design, and business.

High school learners from different parts of South Africa were recently challenged to develop a full brand campaign and real-life brand challenge when Vega invited them to its campuses in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, and Cape Town to participate in the Vega VIBE.

The learners, composed of six individuals per team, were tasked to work on a brand brief from Craig Wilko’s brand called ‘Brand The Six Pack Masculine Virtues’ — an online course and workbook designed to inspire positive masculinity among young men.
