After joining the team, my objectives were clear after a very short period of time. The whole visual presence of the brand and the product had to be brought back to life and refreshed so it can fit in today's market. Having a background in graphic design as well, the whole process began with me proposing a remake of our brandguidelines and executing it, introducing fresher colors, fonts, gradients, and other visually appealing elements.

However, the need for a streamlined and integrated payments solution with the goal of simplifying payments for the everyday user and businesses is at an all time high. Activities such as booking airline tickets, cinema and concert tickets, or even simplifying payments using electronic platforms at supermarkets and restaurants in Nigeria.
