I’m Kwaku ‘REEZ’ Opoku. I’m a graphic designer and musician. After earning my undergraduate degree in Integrated Design, from Parsons School of Design, I worked in Tema, Ghana for a year. While there, I’ve been focusing on building a creative agency and mainly, exploring the numerous ways I could make my home country, Ghana more sustainable using design as a tool. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to integrate design and music, in order to create experiences that are conducive enough for conversations and interactions to flourish. For the longest time, it has been a goal of mine to help change the skewed perceptions that people have of design and of the arts in Ghana.
