About Me

I work with diverse clients to create design solutions that transcend mere aesthetic appeal to solving problems creatively and uniquely.

From a young technician’s hobby to a family man’s profession.

Hi, I am Paul, an Independent Visual Design Creative based in Eket, Nigeria. I started graphic design as a hobby during my mechanical apprenticeship period with ExxonMobil Upstream Nigeria in 2015. Working afterwards as a contract technician, granted me full access to LinkedIn Learning Premium where I learnt & practised as much as I could after work, and through that, nurtured my design passion through a side hustle phase into a full-time profession.

One quality that makes me unique from other designers is my strong desire for constant personal development through self-driven pieces of training/practice, direct mentoring by industry-leading experts (like Jarrod Drysdale), and loads of experience from lots of successful projects. Thanks to that, my skillset spans all possible design needs my constantly evolving clients might have. I believe creativity is freedom and each tool I add to my quiver opens new doors of solutions and possibilities.

I got married to the love of my life, Enchantresx, at the age of 25 and together we inspire many to believe in love and to give their best to create healthy and happy relationships through our annual self-published magazine project –Enchanted Magazine – among others.

When I am not providing simple and effective solutions for my clients or learning; I enjoy landscape/nature photography, and travelling with my Enchantresx. When alone and not lost in my head, I mostly live inside my headphones and groove to TØP, Imagine Dragons, and their likes while rummaging tech blogs.

In a nutshell, I am amazing and we should work on something great together. Don’t take my word for it, ask my wife.
