HeseyDesigns is a Nigerian fashion brand which specializes in the designing and production of handcrafted bags, shoes, fashion accessories, corporate gift items with African, continental and a variety of materials. We have been handling some product photography and graphics needs for the brand in recent weeks and the experience has been fabulous. Take a look.
#GrowYourFood is an initiative of AgriHub Nigeria to get a million Nigerians to grow their own food at home by 2025. The country is on the brink of a food crisis and we believe that with Nigerians growing our local foods at home, we will be able to create a sustainable living and get Nigerians eating fresher and healthier vegetables that they grow in their homes.
Websites are crucial to your brand. To be directly honest, its better not to have a website at all than to have a bad website. If you do have a website, then it should be visually appealing, clean and clutter-free. It’s usually seen as a reflection of your business/brand, your products and your services. It practically helps to #IdentifyYourBrand.

EL-Totuoma was our first attempt at BrandSTATR. We re-designed their logo and created a new businesscard and letterhead for the company. EL-Totuoma’s company profile was also re-created with a very modern andsimplistic flair to make the company stand out from its competitors.
March March March!!! It was a busy month here. We were up and down doing all sorts from Photos, to Videos, to Websites and more. Here is the first part of a recap of a good number of what we were involved in. A second part is here. We are grateful to all our friends, supporters and clients for continuing to trust us over time and we are always excited to create media that helps to develop brands. Please click here if you are interested in working with us!
The first month of the New Year has just wrapped up, and with AgriHub we are up to our usual good of teaching folks how to grow their own food right in their homes – easy, convenient and with the simplest tools! Our first #GrowYourFood hangout held a few days ago on the 27th of January, 2018, and we are glad for the positive reviews we’ve gotten so far.
A little throwback to last year, we visited two secondary schools just before the year ended to teach kids how to plant some of their favourite vegetables and they were fun and very educative sessions. The triumphant smiles on their faces when it was finally harvest time was priceless – that was enough reward for us!
During our first hangout of the year, the participants returned home with so much knowledge – not just about growing their own food, but the uses and importance of some of these foods! Many had no idea that the fluted pumpkin (Ugwu) and Lagos spinach (Soko) can be eaten raw or made into smoothies.
We’re looking forward to the next hangout! Looking to grow your own food and you don’t know how? Get ready to join us this month – we’ll be showing you how, from preparing and mixing your soil with compost, to prepping your seeds and helping you get familiar with all the garden tools you’ll need – these and many more are some of the things that were taught at the January hangout.
A huge thank you once again to everyone that joined us for the hangout and to everyone that gave positive feedback, from their appreciation of the venue’s comfortability and the facilitator’s effective practical teaching to the entire event itself!

Don’t forget, #NoFarmerNoFood! And growing your own food not just only helps you cut costs, it strengthens the bond between you and your kids if you’re doing it together! Until the next hangout, make sure you eat healthy!
So @banksbmpro requested for a product photographer yesterday and mentioned the following
1) Good Work Ethics veeeery important.
2) A creative eye a must
3) #hardworking #creativethinker #decent
4) Tag a page that shows a portfolio not #weddingphotography
1, 2 and 3, we have on lock down by the special grace of God and our many attempts to #DoBetter than we did, at a task, yesterday.
#4 however, in my opinion was very tricky for us. Saying there is a clear portfolio here of #ProductPhotography would not be correct in my opinion and this is our profile says a lot about things that have to do with different types of media your brand is putting out to the public from photos, to videos, graphics and websites.
That reminded me clearly of a timetable for content i developed a while back that focuses on specific services each day of the week. If we had kept to this, then there would have been a repetition of product photos over the course of time to count as a porfolio but we couldnt for some reasons best know to nobody actually.
All hope wasn’t lost actually and so we referred @banksbmpro to our website (http://www.redboxxdesigns.com/tag/product-photography/) to see some of our past work via her DM. Now that link shows a portolio directly and that’s what our instagram page should show too because she may never really have the time to head to our website to check
I am already tempted to create another instagram handle for prodoct photography like we created @8631photos for #EventPhotography and @xgrubs for #FoodPhotography but first I will fin that schedule and see how it can guide us to depict the right images per time every week.
Morale of the story, dont post on your instagram for posting sake. Post with the mission to build a portfolio. Post with your potential client in mind.
Thanks to everyone who tagged us! @phunmikedemi @bk_okuns @wuraola_21 @baloo4lyfe @libraneyephotography. You folks rock!!!
