From working with a lot of great designers over the years I will love to highlight a couple of habits that make the great designers stand out and have a great career over the years.


Being from Nigeria and seeing what I have accomplished over the last decade I feel very pleased to call myself a good designer, but now in the EU things are a lot different the expectations are higher from new clients and even old ones who naturally believes that designing products in Europe means better quality design. In the faith it means been good would not cut it for me anymore greatest of is the only acceptable thing.

This is why I am keeping this quote "Don't be good my nigga be great" from Jayz to remind me that the goal is greatness and noting short.
