By John Fadipe
Who are you, and what's your role at GrowthFixx?
I'm Uzair. I am from Pakistan. I have been in charge of graphics and design with Growthfixx (formerly TCMA) since 2020, and it has been an incredible journey working with a team of brilliant people.
What does a regular day at Growthfixx look like for you?
I work from home and begin each day at Growthfixx by checking my email and workspace software for any design needs. Then, before I begin working on them, I research and analyze what’s required for each design.
I work on email designs, social media posts, ebooks, ads, and many other projects.
Why do you enjoy working on GrowthFixx?
I absolutely love our small team; to be honest, I have never seen such a fantastic team as we have at Growthfixx. They admire and respect your work, encourage you, and are always eager to try out new ideas. This culture has helped me in developing my skills and expertise.
What is your favorite thing you worked on at Growthfixx?
I am grateful to have been a vital part of the brand transitioning from TCMA to Growthfixx. This was one of the most exciting and challenging projects I have worked on here.
What tools do you use?
The tools I use vary depending on the task at hand, but I mostly use Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe AfterEffects. WonderShare and Figma are two other tools I use.
Because the graphics design field is already vast and growing by the day, I am constantly expanding my skill set as a designer.
What do you do when you aren't working on Growthfixx?
In my own time, I like to spend quality time with my family and go grocery shopping.
What is your philosophy about work?
Never underestimate your power. You can do anything if you believe in yourself.
What do you like to listen to while you work?
I listen to random music without lyrics. Currently, I listen to Omer Balik.

I like sci-fi movies and series. My favorite show has to be Stranger Things. You should see it. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4574334/
Cat Or Dogs?
I go with cats. Cats are cute and joyful, and naughty. And you don't have to take them out on walks every day.
What two items would you want to have if you were on a deserted island with shelter, food, and water?
My cell phone and laptop.
What would it be if you had to choose only one food to eat for the rest of your life?

A piece of advice for new graphics designers?
You don't need fancy design lectures or classes to get started. Just watch lots of tutorials on YouTube, start with basics like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator then do your magic.
