Tell us about yourself:

Just your friendly neighborhood designer!!

I’m a multidisciplinary designer/ Lettering Artist born in the Caribbean and living in the Netherlands. Like the Caribbean, I’m full of energy and passion which he integrates into each of his designs with a splash of multi-culture that makes them awesome and unique.

What is the inspiration behind your poster design?

The inspiration behind this design is the black design culture. Inspired by my personal experiences, knowledge, and research of black design. It was created using a mix of graphic design, analog, graffiti, and urban.

Why do you love being creative?

It allows me to use my creative for good as in helping people.

Tell us about your experiences in the design world…

As a black Caribbean in the Netherlands is not easy but we all created or are part of communities to help on another.

How can we create a more inclusive design world and ensure that Black people are represented?

Making sure that your agencies are ready to be more inclusive rather then thinking just be hiring more inclusive candidates would solve the problem.

In general… How can we make more equity or equality for us?

Be being there for one another and being open to that.
