What is the inspiration behind your space design and item catalogue?

“ The inspiration behind my space has been simplicity and comfort since I spend most of the time there. I have tried to upgrade and change a few times but most times i’m constrained by space and surely if i move to a new space i will make it worthwhile ”

Describe a typical work day

“So I wake up at 9am, yes 9am, I’m not that 6am early bird kinda guy. First thing i do is definitely switch off my alarm (haha) then check my telegram and Slack for design assignments or comments on design assignments. Coffee is a must, so I make me a cup of Uganda’s finest coffee and set up on my desk and start my day. Sometimes I have shoots so the the morning is about parking my gear, and checking out my shoot schedule. The day goes on like that with breaks for coffee, beer and food. I mostly stop work at 2am or 3am. I am a night owl and we all know designers really don’t have a life. I spend weekends either filming, photography and traveling or camping with friends but all this with intervals of work.”
