„As a Ghanaian who is interested and inspired by Ghanaian and African culture, I’m a living witness to the knowledge that is being lost to time. That is why I feel it is important to create a repository of our history and heritage in a ‚language‘ using symbols that our people can relate to and understand.” (Kwame Akoto-Bamfo, Design Indaba)
