Welcome To My Blog

Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Jide Akinlabi. I am a graphic, logo and brand identity designer. On this blog, you will find tips, articles and resources on graphic design, print design, logo design, branding, typography, advertising & lots more. 

I am a freelance graphic designer, who specializes in the area of brand identity (logo) design, print design and branding. I design and co-ordinate marketing promotion activities for businesses such as logos, business cards, letterhead, packaging and lots more. I am passionate about creating effective visual communications. I create thoughtful, inspiring, creative and effective logos and identity programs that give companies and businesses the means to flourish. My design philosophy: Simple, Creative and Effective Designs. I create simple, unique and easy to understand designs ideas. The logos and designs should be EASY TO REMEMBER and HARD TO FORGET. I hold a B.Sc in Mass Communication (Marketing Communications Major) from Bowen University, Osun State. Due to my love for fine art, graphics and animation which I had nurtured and guarded religiously from childhood, I decided to venture into the field of graphic design and visual communications about six years ago and I have not stopped loving it... I love design, and I look out for it in everything I do and everywhere I go. I find myself applying it into every aspect of my existence. I breathe, eat, drink and sleep design. I absolutely love it. It is my forte. Asides design, I also love listening to good quality music, I love watching and playing soccer and I love watching movies. 

Jide Akinlabi launched as a brand on July 1, 2012 as my graphic design business and also as a graphic design blog. The blog focuses on all areas of creativity and design such as; graphic design, logo design, advertising, branding, typography, designers, blogging, resources, my work, color scheming, marketing, social media, user experience and many more. 

I just finished designing and launching my logo which I will be featured on this blog very soon. I will write about how I got the inspiration for the logo and the process I followed in designing it. I am also currently writing a research work on the Nature and Impact of Visual Communication in Advertising, which is a requirement for the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON) Professional Diploma in Advertising. 

 You can find and connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Behance, Adloops and Google+. I can't wait to get your comments, advise, tips, criticisms, suggestions and hellos.
