Do you think the tech industry is getting saturated as more people are learning the skills and coming in?

Do you think there are many people already involved in tech and new people coming in won’t have enough opportunities?

Do you think there are only very few opportunities available for beginners or newbies in tech?

My answer to these questions above is — No! Not at all!

The tech industry is the new oil industry in Nigeria today😋

About 5–10 years ago in Nigeria, the average working-class person always had this strong assumption that if one gets a job in…


Imagine your favorite artist sings or releases a song without spacing or breaks in between the music, It would sound noisy - the beats would clash with notes or tones and then it would be a turnoff to all listeners. Spacing is really important in all spheres, it even connotes arrangement in a layman understanding. It can be as basic as if you go to a waiting room, in there, everyone has his/her own seat and people refer to their individual seat as “my space.

So spacing can equal position, and position equals orderliness.

Now let’s look at spacing from…


As its name implies, landing page is a page customers “land” on. This is the first page visitors come in contact with when they click on a website URL from an advertisement or promotion. Landing page has only one action (i.e. CTA - Call To Action) which you want your visitors to perform. These actions could include filling a form, making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, downloading a file or an ebook, registering for an event and so on.

As having a user-friendly and intuitive product, landing pages should also be easy to navigate. Landing pages should be…


Exactly 4pm on Thursday, 29th of July, 2021 about 3 weeks ago, the doors of Mayhaven innovation hub opened up to over 50 students of the most beautiful campus in Africa (Obafemi Awolowo University) to receive Perxels' gift - A 3-days free UIUX design masterclass.

Truth be told, that wasn’t the real beginning of the story.

The team at Perxels design school had spent days that turned into weeks to plan the masterclass. The publicity was done and the result was the over 120 registered people against the available slots of 40 students per category.

After a fair selection, the…


In our last article, we discussed the differences between UI and UX design where we learnt the meaning of each role, their similarities and differences using analogies. In today’s article, we will look at product design and UIUX design. These terms are also used interchangeably but the responsibilities of a product designer are much more vast than that of a UIUX designer. This article will explain the meaning, similarities and differences of each role.

What is Product Design?

Product design is the process of taking a product from concept to market. It involves everything that has to do with the product from identifying a…


User interface design (UI) and user experience design (UX) are two design terms an average person starting out in the tech industry misinterprets for one thing with different names. Even experienced uiux designers themselves tend to use them interchangeably or incorrectly. There is an underlying confusion in the meaning of both terms. I am sure even you reading this right now must have wondered at some point or even confused right now, ‘‘what the difference between UI and UX design is?’’

In this article, we will define the terms and point out their individual differences.

User Experience (UX)

User experience is the total…


This article is written for people who find it difficult to be confident in their creativity or design work. People under this category constantly talk to themselves with words like;

“I don’t think I’m bold enough to call myself a good designer because there are so many designers better than me out there”

"Other people are doing better than I do so why should share my work"

“I’m scared to show my work, what if I get bashed for not using the right text and colours or senior designers would look down on my work?”

One thing I want to make clear here is this: every designer - in short, every human, at some point has dealt with or is dealing with the panic of if their work is good enough?

Why, you may ask?

Every human needs validation at one point or the other in their lifetime - we all need validation at one point or another to help us feel important. So the…


Hello there, thank you for following through on my articles over the last few weeks, it's been an interesting process sharing my knowledge and experience with you.

What is User Flow? (https://link.medium.com/eVnmWnnrHhb)

How to Create a User Flow ( https://medium.com/@perxels/user-flow-in-ux-design-contd-how-to-creat-user-flow-e7aeb5abc714)

In the previous articles, I explained user flow and shared how to create one easily.

Today, I will be highlighting the importance of creating user flow - am sure you must have asked yourself what's the essence of user…


In the last article, I shared a simple introduction to user flow; what it entails and it’s core highlight. Today, I would be talking about how to create a user flow easily even if you have never done it before. This is going to be a practical step by step approach to help you create a user flow in minutes, so I would be using a project I worked on as a student at Perxels called ‘‘Charito’’ a charity app to walk you through the process.

First thing you want to make clear before creating any user flow is to…


User flow is an important aspect of building better products, both mobile or web. Starting out as a UIUX designer, I struggled with creating user flows. During a project I worked on in my design class, my instructor kept laying emphasis on user flow. I can still remember his words “You have to be able to create a good user flow that shows the user journey for any product you are designing, It’s one of the major determining factors in creating a great user experience in any product.”

So of course, I put myself to the task and I dive…
