Power of Ten is a podcast about design operating at many levels, zooming out from thoughtful detail, through to organisational transformation, and onto changes in society and the world, hosted by Andy Polaine.

This episode's guest is Senongo Akpem, a designer, illustrator and the founder of Pixel Fable, a collection of interactive Afrofuturist stories and currently Design Director at Constructive, a social impact design agency. Senongo talks about how living in constantly shifting cultural and physical spaces has given him unique insight into the influence of culture on communication and creativity and forms the basis of his book, Cross-Cultural Design, published by A Book Apart.
