About me

A small introduction about myself.

I'm Ilo Ikenna Valentine.
A Graphic and Web designer & from Enugu State, Nigeria. I’ve always had a passion for art and design.
Starting my career as a Music prodigy and a creative artist, I quickly realized that the digital world was the way of the future. I dropped everything and focused entirely on graphic design. My passion ever since has been developing brands and using my traditional talents to create digital illustrations. Along the road, I’ve worked both as an in-house designer for large corporations, at an agency and as a freelancer. The agency environment taught me to juggle multiple clients and to work fast and efficiently. Working in-house, I learned to follow brand guidelines and to be creative, while still maintaining consistency. Lastly, freelancing has strengthened my communication skills with clients and developed my independent problem-solving abilities.
My combined learnings from these three worlds have given me the experience and confidence to work with amazing clients from around the globe. Now my focus is on building happy and healthy long-term partnerships with clients by providing unique insights and quality design. When I’m not designing, you’ll find me Singing or Listening to Music. I still draw when there’s time and i'm known to be very good with video games.
If you are interested in working together or just want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you.
