THE CREATIVE GENIUS THAT IS MISTA SKEE, GRAPHIC DESIGNER





Name: “Mista Skee”, but if you don’t know me well, “Mis-ta” will suffice!

Born and bred in: London-Lagos

Role at FAB: Design/Illustrations/Layouts

FAB part of your job: Having fun and getting paid for it. But more seriously speaking, the creative process involved in putting the whole magazine together; that experience is second to none.

Least liked but still FAB part of your job: Call me on 077…

Aspirations/goals: My major aspiration is to see FAB grow into something that even we cannot fathom at the moment; with each issue we have to strive to push further and further ahead of the crowd, soon there will be no crowd.

Inspirations: God. He alone is more than enough! My parents, wife and family; they know the real me and still love me.

Hero/Heroine: Batman/Wonderwoman J In the real world though, I have no heroes, everyone has a dark side, no one is perfect. In people we see only what we want to see. Selah!

Best piece of advice you can offer: Aim to be the best “YOU.”

Your kind of music: Music is so relative, but in general I appreciate good vocals and meaningful content. I do think there is a big difference between real musicians and products of the media who are obsessed with record sales, auto-tune and influencing our youth with bad morals.

Your kind of book: I love a good novel, but these days I mostly read computer and electronic manuals… I’m geeky like that!

Your style in a nutshell: I’m all “skeed “out! Style is not something you say you have in my books, it’s something others say you have or don’t have.

Kryptonite: Kryptonite! It makes me weak and decreases my design powers!

Pet Peeves: People who do what they do badly! Wastefulness! Arrogance.

Your USP:  Being Skee! Like me or not! I like myself!
