About me
Eugene is a British-Ghanaian brand experience designer focusing his practice around Sports, Music, and live events. What drives him is the opportunity to create experiences and curate brands that reflect the culture of their audience. He is a final-year student studying visual communication in Birmingham (UK). He's interning with Huge on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with the Brooklyn team via the London office. Outside of work, Eugene is always looking for a good time and being around new people ie: concerts and live matches (pretty much the opposite of lockdown).
