What are some things that you love?
First, I am a full-time graphic designer who is very passionate with what I do. Some of the skills that have kept me focused on my work include inborn artistic ability, time-management skills, communication skills, creativity and computer skills. Communication skills are essential for much of the success I have witnessed is as a result of good relationship with clients and peers in the industry. My computer skills are quite impressive as it includes coding and working with Adobe’s creative Apps and interactive media.
What is your favorite Television show?
My all-time favorite TV shows include Objectified and Abstract: The Art of Design that debuted on Netflix in 2017. Away from blueprints and computers, the hugely popular Netflix show discusses how design impacts everyday life. The 10-part series does this by showcasing the works of great designers of our time with respect to disciplines like stage design, illustrations, photography, graphic design and architecture. Objectified is a compelling documentary that talks about the consumer relationship with products and the designers behind them. The other amazing thing about the program is the dedication to the often delicate design process.

We use the best creative design suites to explore infinite possibilities in the design industry. I love the fact that I can design something that can be used both large and small business to attract audiences, build a brand and help realize sales. My aspiration is to turn the graphic design studio into a hub of creative arts and advertising. This is indeed a multi-billion dollar industry, which young creative minds straight from college will find readily attractive to engage.
What is your favorite thing about working in your current industry?
My graphic design career and interest have made it possible for me to turn ideas into reality. Because of this experience, I fully know how to combine business needs with different visual identities. I also find the opportunity to work with many industries quite compelling. Indeed, the level of diversity I see helps inspire top-notch creativity and teamwork while steadying the revenue stream. In terms of outlook, the graphic design industry is projected to grow in the coming years, and this is all thanks to the vibrant marketing and digital media, which includes the explosive social media.
What motivates you every single day?
Graphic designers working for established corporate entities often enjoy job security and perks that come with the designation. For a freelancer like me, the biggest motivation is the flexibility and free hand to push the limits of my creativity. My work schedule is generally determined by the project deadlines and amount of workload in the in-tray. Since creativity is a product of motivation, I always try to make the workspace as creative as possible. I prefer working in a quiet, but comfortable workspace that encourages collaboration.
I also use feedbacks to assess the market response and enjoy collecting materials that offer inspiration such as timeless artworks, pictures depicting nature and books of literature. With respect to feedback, I always advise my industry peers as well as up-and-coming graphic designers to know how to handle both positive and negative responses. Although you can choose what to listen to and what to avoid, try not to allow the negative feedbacks to cloud your mind because the motivation to scale greater heights could be lying therein.
