Hobbies and interests

Learning new things and watching tutorials before I sleep. I try to make sure I constantly learn new things or improve my skillset everyday; I read books about creativity just to spark the inner creativity in me. I try experimenting on techniques and fail over and over until I get it right.

Last book read

The Win Without Pitching Manifesto by Blair Enns Last week, since i got the news on my previews client I Immediately start reading this book since I got the time. It helps creative business owners and creative such as my self. It more about learning the business. The book is like a manifesto so it has a strong bold language and statements on what we should do as creatives or creative business owner. Its a really fun book to read and very insightful.

Greatest work achievement

I rebranded my previews client's business. I help them with the branding & corporate identity alongside the merger that was happening. Corporate Identity with mergers is one of the most fulfilling experiences in design. Sorting out different logos and brands together while maintaining a high level of output made it worthwhile. from all the collaterals to the video elements used made them cohesive as a brand.
