Hi, I'm Akinlolu. I’m a New Jersey based Artist, Writer & Product Designer. I work on various visual designs, write about music, people and other things, write poetry, work on website content and information architectures, cook innovative (vegitarian) recipies spun out of thin air, and ocassionally work the marketing/social media manager role. My creative practice spans photography, mixed media, collage and illustration. I sleep upwards of 7 hours a day because my body needs it.
As an artist and graphic designer, sometimes it can get a bit confusing for clients having to differentiate between one's services as a visual artist providing artwork for a project, and one's services as a graphic designer combining artwork, typography and other design principles to desing a product. In attempt to help sort out the air of confusion in cases like these, I will be going over my process on a recent project where I created a stand-alone art piece that was also used in the design of an album cover.
