Senongo Akpem is a brilliant art director and illustrator currently in New York City. What I love about Senongo's work is how he mixes futurism along with his Nigerian culture to create really fantastically creative projects.
We started off by discussing two of his most well-known projects -- Pixel Fable and Holo Halo. From there, Senongo walked me through his early career, explained how his time in Japan helped shaped him as a designer, and gave some really sharp critiques on the current design community. Senongo is one of the very first designers I reached out to back in Revision Path's early days, so our interview today feels like a real full circle moment. I think you'll really get a lot out of this episode. Enjoy!
