Hi there, nice to meet you.
I’m Lola Adebayo, a multidisciplinary Creative and Art Director based in London.
I am a highly dedicated award winning creative (art director) with over 9 years of experience within the design and brand marketing industry. Passionate about innovative ideas and fresh, vibrant design has led to an impressive portfolio of high concept projects.
Having worked in various sectors which include, retail, health, finance and agency with varying clients such as; Google, Sports Direct, NFL, Dell, Mercedes, London 2012 Olympics, Southwark Council, Currys/PC World.
My design style is clean, fresh, professional, with a sprinkle of quirky.
So where did it all start…
My love for creative began during the wonderful discovery of Geocities, a budding designers dream! My quest to be unique led me to challenge the site builder. I began researching on HTML codes on the web, in order to create snazzy over the top fan pages (of whatever boyband crush I had at that moment) with crazy flickering animated backgrounds (stars and fireworks seemed to be my fave).
Years later I went to university to study a degree in computer engineering with a multimedia pathway, which helped in familiarising myself with industry standard creative. I soon got tired of living on baked beans and instant noodles so whilst studying at uni I began freelancing and contract work.
Experience is the best teacher…well that’s what they say, right? …erm well I did read it somewhere.
I’ve worked at Hawkeye (Epsilon) since Feb 2016, mainly working across the Google account. Before I made my move to Hawkeye (Epsilon) I spent 3 and a half years at Goupon, from startup to what it is today. I then spent 2 years at Algomi as a UX/UI designer working on what then became an award winning “Trading technology product of the year” at the Risk Awards.
I’ve continued to have a growing interest in all things creative and how creative can emote feeling and forces people to think.
We should all think, thinking is good!
Outside of my 9-5:30/6ish
I am a self-published author of a Children’s picture book series, that teach children about social-emotional skills and how to nurture relationships. The series is co-written and largely inspired by her 6 year old twin daughters and aims to highlight the need for diversity in Children’s literature.
