For Designers, By Designers


Our mission is to facilitate the cross-pollination of design thinking, knowledge, and shared experiences between tech industry professionals across the African diaspora.

We aim to connect aspiring design professionals to design leaders through immersive programming, creating the space for shared learning and experiences. Our multi-month program is crafted for professionals looking to kickstart a transition into the UI/ UX design industry.

Here’s how it works:

  • Fellows will be given a step by step design curriculum that takes them from the basics of interface design to core methodologies/approaches of design thinking.

  • Throughout the program, fellows will be matched with mentors, design leaders in Silicon Valley and Nigeria, to provide 1:1 guidance on their path to becoming a user interface designer.

  • At the end of the program, you will leave with an online design portfolio and the opportunity to interview with leading tech companies in Lagos.

Our model is built on the following pillars:

  • Knowledge: exchange ideas and expertise via project-based learning

  • Talent: develop talent in yourself and others through peer mentorship

  • Experience: get firsthand experience and build relationships in Nigeria’s burgeoning tech industry through immersion and community events




Starting in 2020, We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis for our inaugural cohort.
