Yeaa.. So like I said.. Name is Dipo
And all my skills(if they are worthy to be called that) are self taught or maybe I should say YouTube taught...whichever.. Not sure how long it is that I got my system(laptop) buh it is either its not yet up to a year or its a little past a year.. Before I got it, I saw other peoples designs and just wanted to do mine too.. I love art and also like to make money grin.. So that could be my two inspiration...
The way I started might make you think I am now an expert, please don't be deceived.. Ayam not rara.. I just want to share my story and in the process get clients too wink..

When I got my system.. I remember that “I am going to computer village” became an anthem... Considering the fact that I don't usually go out on my own before then.. I was ‘gingered’ to go.. Went there... Got Pes16 and 15 ( as a guy naa grin football first) bought controllers too then finally managed to buy coreldraw and photoshop7.0. Got home Installed it.. Football games first.. They installed. Then the graphic programs.. As expected some didn't work

Then the YouTube trip started.. Kept searching... Before I got a working illustrator.. I had the photoshop7.0 first so I was working with Ps7.0 first. . there wasn't much videos on ps7.0 so I just downloaded videos for cs6 and Cc and tried working it with 7.0.. I was deceiving myself..


I was able to design something sha..

I did one other one laidat sha.. I happen not to know where it is again... So I just completed 3 designs basically and gave up.... I didn't buy any program again and didn't bother about designing... Channeled all my energy to Pes grin grin and alas.. I became a God cool... I resumed school.. Changed my walking steps to that of someone that now owns a system of his cheesy(don't bother asking about this).. Started inviting people for games.. We played.. I won some and I lost most... Until it became I won most and lost some... Leaving Football out of it.. I sha later came to nairaland... I only knew the front-page and the pet section then (also a dog lover).. When I finally came to the art graphics and videos part I was wowed . by the logos section mainly.. I wanted to start again... And thanks to Mtn 25 naira night plan I have gotten somewhere grin

With the stuff I did.. She referred me to another friend that also wanted a logo too.. Her brand deals with weaves and makeup products.. Royalty signatures.. Days passed and I had no idea about what I wanted to do... I thought about doing the typographical logo stuff.. Worked on it too... Added a face and used this
