So on 26th February 2017 I finished my 3 month ‘Creative in Residence’ program with Livity. Coming from a full time role as a UX/UI Designer I started this program in hopes to launch a freelance career and these are my top 3 experiences from Livity.

That dope zen

The student must now become the master… or at least try

Although I may not be a master at this now Livity has definitely helped me form a foundation.

In less than 3 months I have managed to achieve what I thought would take me more than a year to realize. I have managed to connect with awesome people, develop my brand further, secure funding with Suvera (a start-up I work with), now I’m organising an event to explore digital design in Africa and that’s just a small overview.

New family, bigger dreams

At the moment I plan to keep doing what I’m doing to take my brand even further, I’ve been inspired to not only work on myself but to also support others where I can. I also have new project ideas that I will be starting in March/April so keep an eye out!

Also, if you’re a young creative looking for a similar experience Livity have opened up their applications for more Creatives in Residence! Check it out here
