What does it take to be a Great Designer?
People have been wondering and i know even you, you are asking yourself this question. we had to ask Nelson The Great this question, and the answer was stunning “What it takes to be a great designer is Passion, Dedication and a lot of coffee”.
Nelson The Great is a young man but creating great brands. He has been in the industry for 3 years now. Are there challenges in being a designer? “Yes there is. As a matter of fact, brokers are bad for business, I urge clients to look for designers by themselves and not to look out for brokers. Sometimes it hurts when you find out the logo or the artwork you designed was quoted US$ 10,000 and you were only paid US$ 1,000”.
The Kenyan government needs to find a way to protect designers from being harassed by brokers and other clients who are making money from artworks they didn’t even work on. Otherwise, Kenyan designers will ran to the US where everything is business about artworks, a place where their rights are protected.
