A wiseman once said “To be the best, visit your past” LOL! We coined that. But interestingly, reminiscing the history of design has been neglected for long and diluted the design scope of people in Ghana. In this episode we back our claim with the right resource person who has experienced the past and is in our “now”. He is none other than Prof. Ato K.G deGraft-Johnson. Ato K.G. deGraft-Johnson is a retired lecturer, and former Head, Department of Communication Design, KNUST. He leads by demonstrating and nurturing creativity, and promoting critical-thinking.
His current research work is on an appropriate pedagogy for Design Education in Africa that telescopes endogenous, participatory development across all disciplines. He advocates for cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary education with Design as an integral component.
