When a brief comes in and the problem that needs to be solved has been clarified and simplified, the next thing we do is get our heads out of our asses.
In developing effective solutions that hit the mark to creative briefs, we must understand what constitutes the context of the problem we want to solve and the people we want to sell that solution to. Then we go further to understand how to analyze the context in the way that the solution we create will fit perfectly if that’s the objective.
Thursday morning came with film making gadgets. We were going for the full haul, no half-assed measures. One of our designers, Oyindamola, led the production of the short film and it went great.

We found a way for everyone to own a piece of the 2018 World Cup jerseys, not just the #naija jersey but all 5 of the African countries participating at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The jerseys are available for download and can be worn as social media covers, mobile and desktop wallpapers.
While we have been carried away by sci-fi, especially films, drones have been creeping up on us. They are no longer the future, they are now. To put that comment in perspective, last year at the GTBank Fashion Weekend , I saw drones flying all about the venue, creeping up behind people like little monsters.
If you’ve ever watched this classic animation, Heavy Metal, then you’ll likely feel a bit of a shiver when you learn that a car is cruising in space right now. That picture of Starman in the Roadster with the earth silhouetted behind him is an exciting pictorial representation of what 2018 should be; shoot ad astra, to the stars.
We’re starting the #OneWildWoman series; spotlighting creative women around the world who have shattered all levels of normal and ordinary in their fields. We hope this will in a way, bring to recognition these women and their works while inspiring those coming behind.
