How I Started Off as a Graphics Designer to Getting Endorsed by the UK Government

Hi Daniel Nejo, what’s your background, and what are you currently working on?

Hey! So, I started off as a graphics designer at the age of 19 back in Lagos, Nigeria and one of the reasons why I chose graphics design was because I’d already graduated from the University and I honestly did not have time to start learning any skill that would take a lot of time (I needed to start making money or be forced to find a job).

So, I chose graphics design and I was providing design services to a few people around me until I stumbled on Fiverr back in 2013. This was a game-changer for me because it allowed me to get a constant flow of clients all over the world.

As time went on, I decided to add some skills to my arsenal.

So, I learned how to design websites with WordPress. Again, I didn’t have the luxury of spending time learning code from scratch, WordPress was an option for me to be able to create high-quality websites without writing a line of code.

So, I slowly became a one-stop-shop for design and branding. Clients who needed to have a “uniform brand identity” loved working with me because I would work on their graphical design needs and then ensure their website was on par with their overall brand theme.

Right now, my company Presidential Ideas does more than just digital branding, it has grown to become a full-on, London based digital marketing agency that works with entrepreneurs and businesses to put their products and services in front of the right people and turn those people into “engaged customers”.

In 2017, I got a Masters in Information Systems Management from Middlesex University and in the same year, I got endorsed by the UK Government as a world-leading exceptional talent in digital technology for my work in the space and potential growth my work and brand will bring to the UK digital economy.

At the moment, I am more into content creation, digital marketing, and customer acquisition.

Daniel Nejo is now synonymous with content and digital marketing (paid ads).

What motivated you to get started with Presidential Ideas?
