Inspiring Black Designers is all about highlighting designers who are talented.

About a month ago, I came across a piece called Culture designed by Chris on Facebook (view below) and was very impressed.

After visiting his website I was even more blown away not only by his pieces, but his consistency of this portfolio and his photography.

He was not only passionate about design but about culture, art, education, and beauty.

He is the nicest guy you would ever meet, so read on and learn why Chris is an inspiring Black designer.


Can you give the readers a little background about yourself?

Well, my name is Jacques and I’m 23 years old. I graduated from college last May and I’ve been designing for about 5 years.

What is Boogie Graphics and how did the name come about?

Boogie Graphics or BG is a digital marketing agency. The name…well, I lived in Brooklyn, NY before I moved to Albany for school and when I was in high school, my peers used to call me Boogie because I was always dancing. I also used to produce music on a small scale. That name just transcended when I decided to name my business. I used to focus on ,solely design and graphics but now that BG has branched out into marketing and other digital avenues, Boogie Graphics means something completely different. We represent young and fresh ideas, fun in the workplace, innovation, and overall positivity.
