Today we’d like to introduce you to Christiana Alonge.
Christiana, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Dior Creationz GFX Designs began March 16, 2020 as a page to showcase the works of a 15 years old graphic designer (me). Before starting this business, I was creating event/party flyers for family and friends back in 2018 and I was later known for providing this service in late 2019. It was always my passion to design and create beautiful digital designs since I’m very creative–however, I never knew my passion was becoming a graphic designer and brand stylist. I designed my first logo at the age of 14 for a friend of mines, not knowing I will later be designing hundreds of logos for businesses all across the world. It wasn’t until the beginning of lockdown (March 16, 2020) that I decided to launch my business Dior Creationz GFX Designs to use my talent to beautify brands in need of my services. Today, Dior Creationz is now a business that specializes in digital branded content, website development, and print marketing–successfully branding hundreds of businesses WORLDWIDE! In the beginning, I honestly did not think my business would go too far in the industry because not many people in my area were into the same field as me. However, with the support of friends, family, strangers, other small businesses online, and most importantly–prayer and faith–my business wouldn’t be where it’s at today.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Being a graphic designer hasn’t been the easiest for me as a teen. I struggled with finding good fonts to use for clients, using the proper textures, proper placement, and using the right programs for designing. At some points, I was so dedicated to learning more about designing everyday that graphic design started to interfere with school and college work. I overcame that struggle by learning to manage my time and becoming a full-time graphic designer and being a half-time student.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a self-taught Graphic Designer, Brand Stylist, and Content Creator who specializes in digital branded content and website development. I am known for successfully branding businesses all over the world and for being one of the youngest in the game to do it! I am mostly proud of my growth. I started off using free programs to design for clients and not using mock-ups to showcase my work. Over time I started investing more time, knowledge and money into my business by purchasing commercial fonts, mock-ups, textures, and most importantly a good program to start designing on. I’m also very proud to say that I am self-taught and did not learn anything from any sources such as YouTube, Google, etc., to get to where I am today! Practice makes perfect and that saying always stuck with me throughout my graphic design journey. What sets me apart from others is my skills, my techniques, my unique branding, my customer service, and most importantly my marketing. I am able to create/design ANYTHING from scratch. You name it!
