“Words matter. Imagery matters. The role of the visual designer is to produce works for specific outcomes. My aim is always to provoke thought, to inform and to aid decisions.”

Emmanuel’s Wisdom

“Since the European slave ships landed on the coast of Africa in the early 16th century and forcibly uprooted roughly 12 million Africans, people of African descent have been fighting for their freedom all over the world.

Stolen from Africa, brought to America and labeled three-fifths of a man, nearly 500 years later African-Americans continue to survive against all odds. The new generation of African-Americans are focused like Malcolm X with reparations in sight. Uncle Sam is a power junkie and it’s time to cut him off.”

SAY THEIR NAMES

LOVE
“Love is not about skin color, nor eye color, nor wealthness. Love is about pure feelings and nothing else.”
