Hey, my name is Chukwuka. My friends call me Chuks, you can too🙂. I am a Product Designer fascinated by how products and design influence people’s lives.
In the past 4+ years, I have worked with some of the most ambitious companies such as Paxful, Sterling Bank, Vetsark, Gen Financials, ScholarX, and many more.
I am currently building Spire and Untitled Designers.
I doubled as an IC and a lead for Gen. As the lead, I was responsible for all design efforts — brand, art & design direction, Marketing, and Product — and was involved in strategy. As an IC, I worked on the web side of the Product, occasionally working on marketing needs too. I worked with a fantastic team of 4 designers; Akin Theodox (Brand designer), Oselu Irabor (Illustrations), Caleb Uzuegbunam (Mobile App Designer), and Quadri (Marketing Designer). This, of course, was in addition to the PM, Compliance team, Engineering team, and Management.
I currently work as a Product Designer in the Payments Application and Business Automation department with Sterling Bank, one of Nigeria’s most innovative and valuable banking brands. In my time here, I have employed diverse skills and tools in designing financial solutions that empower small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to scale and contribute to the economy of the country as a whole.
I joined as a solo designer and grew the design team to a team of 4. During my time at Vestark, I built and managed 4 products ranging from B2C to B2B. Projects varied from UX Research to Design, to UI Design, to complete responsive redesigns, to UX strategy, allowing me to grow all these skills in a real-life scenario.
