In a chit-chat with Ace, the official Graphics Designer at F&K Savings, he shares his interests, passion, and journey into the graphics designing and FinTech industries.
Hello! Can we meet you?
I am Babatunde Adesida (aka General Ace). I am the official graphics designer at F&K Savings.
Would you say the Ace we see everyday as the graphics designer is the only Ace there is to see?
Well, it depends. (laughs) Apart from being a graphics designer at F&K Savings, I enjoy playing football games and listening to good music. With these, you can easily deduce that I am not the outgoing type; I love staying indoors. I would say I am an ambivert. As much as it may be necessary to go out, I don’t like crowded places and I like privacy.
When did you join F&K Savings?
I joined F&K Savings officially, 2nd of June, 2021. The reason why I said officially is because I have always been the graphics designer for the company since her inception. This is as far back as 2017. In fact, I am one of the founding members of the brand.
Tell us a bit about your role with the fintech brand.
Like I said earlier on, I have been a team member since the brand’s inception. I am the creative director at F&K Savings. Asides creating graphic designs for the brand, I also take pictures for the brand as well as shoot and edit videos too.
Can you give us a little bit about your personal life, background and all?
I am called Ace by friends and family. I am an indigene of Ondo state. I was born and raised in Ibadan, Oyo state. The last born of a family of 6. I am a graduate of University of Ilorin. I am a self taught graphics designer. I learnt by watching YouTube videos.
As an undergraduate, I was into drawing and painting but I realized that this area of interest wasn’t really appreciated by Nigerians. This then made me delve into graphics designing. I have been a graphics designer for over 6 years now and all I can say is that God has been faithful. Basically, what inspired me to learn graphics designing was my love and interest in paints and pictures.
What has the experience been so far working at F&K Savings?
(excited) My experience working with the brand has been interesting, innovative and progressive. In all sincerity, I have enjoyed working in an environment where there is love. Love being the greatest commandment, I have also learnt new things. Working at F&K Savings has not only opened my eyes to ideas professionally but also financially and emotionally. Looking back at when I joined the team till now, I can confidently say that I have learnt and I am still learning.
Name that one remarkable thing you want people to know about the brand
One of the remarkable things about the brand is togetherness or unity. The brand is more like a family. We all see ourselves as one big, happy family. Just like fast and furious. No one acts bigger than anyone.
Do you have a favorite person you have or are working with?
(thinks) My favorite person is Kwami, Although, I don’t work directly with him but for some reasons, he is my favorite person. Everyone else is bae too, depending on the kind of work relationship we have.
Why is he your favorite person?
He is brainy! He thinks fast and also comes up with great ideas when you discuss an issue with him.
How has working with a fintech brand impacted your financial life?
Well, Greatly I must say. I knew how to save when I worked offline with F&K Savings in 2018. But before then, people called me Oloba Spending (laughs) Meaning that I spend extravagantly.
Where do you see F&K Savings in the next two years?
Unthinkable! “Unthinkable” is a word that I use when something extraordinary happens and I can’t fathom it’s occurrence. In a few years, I believe and know that F&K Savings will be doing extraordinarily great.
What is that one word you feel best describes F&K Savings?
F&K Savings is a brand where what you do survives the test of time, Whether as a worker or an investor or a saver. What I mean by this is that you get results for all the efforts you put in. For a worker, all your efforts at bringing the brand to greater heights will show in a matter of time. The same applies to a saver or an investor, your money will accrue returns over time.
