We Are Afrocenchix: Meet Our Design Creative!

Hi, I'm Leah Faulkner, Creative and Design Coordinator at Afrocenchix. I basically take care of how things look, from product photography to illustrations as well as producing social content!

Tell us about yourself.

Iโ€™m Bajan and British and grew up in rural Lincolnshire (which had it's interesting moments!). Iโ€™ve always loved drawing and design and studied Illustration at uni.

What are your hobbies?

When Iโ€™m not working Iโ€™m usually reading romance novels, baking, practicing nail art or hanging out with friends. Sadly for my bank balance, Iโ€™m also obsessed with jewellery and perfume (something Mofe, our Customer and Community Manager definitely encourages).

What's your favourite inspirational quote?

Every day life inspires me, I always look at stuff and wonder what choices the designer made to get to that point and what I could learn from that. A phrase that always makes me feel better is โ€œis it enough to have a bad day?โ€ Sometimes it is but often it helps put things into perspective.ย 

Tell us what motivates you to do what you do here?

Seeing that Iโ€™m part of something bigger than myself, in the grand scheme of the universe maybe haircare seems minor but itโ€™s important! Especially so for people that have often been ignored or underserved.

What's your favourite Afrocenchix product and why?

Itโ€™s cheating but Iโ€™m going to say two โ€“ย Sheen and Smooth, all day! As my hair is more on the fine side, I find that Sheen really revitalises three-to-four-day-old curls and Smooth keeps them looking fresh and feeling soft. Iโ€™m also very excited for an upcoming product release, which may just take the top spotโ€ฆย
