What I'm looking for

Hello, I'm Abutiate Senam Kofi Joy, but you can call me Kofi Joy

I am a product designer based in Accra, Ghana. I value human connection, growth & openness. I enjoy solving complex human problems through design.

Previously as a teaching fellow Product UI/UX at Mest. I'm currently pursuing my degree in computer science at GIMPA.

As a designer, I am especially equipped to act as a bridge between design and dev teams.

When I'm not trying to solve puzzles and design, you can find me, travelling, taking photographs of the world around me.

Now I am just trying my best to be a good designer and mentor. My aim is to be open-minded and approach design leaders but right now, I am having a blast designing and developing cool things.
