Eddie Opara, an interactive and graphic designer. Opara’s dazzling multidisciplinary range combines technology-based wizardry with solid graphic chops, making him a smart addition to the global partnership, says Pentagram partner Lisa Strausfeld. “Eddie is the ideal next generation Pentagram partner. He is traditionally-trained graphic designer and a self-taught software developer with a perfectly tuned eye and keenly strategic mind. He is what every client needs.”

With his new media sensibilities and strategy-minded focus, Opara also seems to fill a very specific niche within Pentagram’s fold, blending Strausfeld’s geek-chic interactive work with, say, the drama of Paula Scher’s large-scale environmental graphics. But Strausfeld says this is a direction that the entire firm is moving. “Every Pentagram partner is now working in digital and interactive media — it’s a logical extension of what we need to do to meet our clients’ needs,” she says. “Eddie just happens to have exceptional talent and fluency in both traditional graphic design media and digital media.”
