About Ernest Ojeh

I'm a web / interface designer from Lagos, Nigeria with a background in Architecture / Urban & Regional Planning / Print design. I design digital interfaces across several platforms - Web, Mobile & Wearables.

When I say design, I also mean interaction design and front-end development.

I love CSS.

I co-founded Prowork, and in my spare time I curate a little video blog called Appscreens and work on a few side-projects.

In my former life at a web design agency, I had the priviledge of working with clients like Unilever, PAL Pensions, Brandsmith Consulting, Cellulant Mobile, Lagos Business School.

Thanks for stopping by.

User Interface Designer. Based in Lagos, Nigeria.

I split my time between designing interfaces for web and mobile sites/apps. I share my latest works on dribbble & I'm @namzo on Twitter. I'm also working on a few personal projects - Keep an eye out.

I'm currently not available for work, but feel free to send me an email: me@ernestojeh.com.


Design shouldn’t just look good but work well. I design interfaces that are easy to understand, and simplify the process required to perform actions. I like to explore all available ways to go about a problem and identify the most functional one - that doesn’t sacrifice functionality for aesthetics.

I believe the user shouldn’t be distracted from the important things so I try to identify & eliminate redundant elements in the design.

Simple aesthetic aids the functionality, so the product doesn’t become a chore to the user but rather a pleasant experience that just happens without distractions.

Every design decision should be intentional. I believe in making a good first impression and the design should show to the user the care and work that has been put into crafting the product.


I do a lot of research and exploration. I like to familiarize myself with the problem from the start. I usually start by making sketches after collecting data and talking to the client, brainstorming and exchanging ideas, then I make prototypes and design concepts in Photoshop/Sketch.
