My name is Nisha Dent and I am the magic that happens when whimsical stories and vibrant colors come together. Since childhood, I’ve been imaginative and artistic. My favorite time during grade school was story time and art class, during these moments I was able to imagine beyond reality. Stories have this ability to speak universally to so many people with the use of color, type, and illustrations. For 9 plus years I’ve used strategic storytelling to captivate audiences from various age groups. Outside of telling stories, I enjoy corky humor, sneaker collecting, cooking, street art, traveling and building my personal brand Okay Ms. Lady.
I wanted to create a free-flowing typographic expression in my visual style of how I feel when I know I have Slayed My Day! There is this freedom I feel knowing that I am walking in my purpose no matter what anyone has to say, this is the purest form of self-love to me!
I love being creative because it’s a huge part of expressing myself. I see the world every day through my own creative lens, walking in my creative purpose is what gives me joy.
My experience in the design world wasn’t as fun as it is now that I am in business for myself. When I worked in Corporate America in design spaces, I never felt heard or seen as much. I never saw many designers who looked like me.
I think more projects like this really help spread the word about the talent of so many Black designers just waiting to be seen.
