About me

My name is Bonae I am a creative and musical director, I am currently freelance for The Brooch Club, an online boutique that specializes in rare vintage designer brooches. I built the brand of this company from scratch, the campaigns, the look, style, tone, identity of this brand and I have been doing this for the past 2 years, as well as expanding my portfolio of creative work. I would call myself a seasoned creative, a problem solver who understands the process of creativity and how to turn an idea into reality. I have many creative gifts and believe I was put on this earth for one thing; to create, and share. Born into a family of music, my main instrument is the drums, and have been on tour with a few pop artists such as Dappy, Tulisa, Tinchey Stryder, kelly la roc to name a few. My musical experience gives me the know how of fussing music and fashion to create visually appealing campaigns.. I live by the code: Show class, have pride, display character. If i was to describe myself in 3 words, it would be mystry, creative and strange.
