Art and design have always been a constant fixture of Nurudeen’s life, from replicating “Supa Strikas’ posters in his tender years to painting posters by hand, and now making animation pieces on his trusted laptop, Rogue. 

At the core of his creative practice is driving impart, creating value, and solving design problems. The goal isn’t just to create a fanciful piece of storytelling, but one that would actually inform the target users and help solve the design problem. Nurudeen’s experience has mostly been in startups, advertising and education. Along this, with his art practice, Nurudeen intends to explore the themes of identity and self through his experiences as a Nigerian-muslim. 

Though specializing in digital media (motion), he is particularly interested in further exploring his creative interest and research in virtual reality and other diverse mediums and their capabilities in helping build digital products that solve real life problems.

An infovore, Nurudeen spends his free time reading novels.
