FW DESIGNS is a fresh graphic designing brand that started just a month ago. However, the plan of the CEO Williams Olufunso Victor(@ill_liam on Twitter and instagram) is to make it an internationally recognised brand. He’s a final year student of the University of Ibadan studying Teacher Education. He’s a choreographer, writer and teacher.
When asked why he decided to go into graphics, he said “I’ve always been more effective using my psychomotor skills , this made me venture into dance at first but I also realized I love working on my system and its becoming addictive, so I decided to channel the energy into something productive. I went into video editing, beat making until I found a stable interest in Graphic Design.
