About Me

What you may already know is that I create awesome designs for small businesses, influencers, authors, and public speakers. What you may not know is that I also write content, help companies set up basic structure, and can put together a super yummy taco.

Most people know me online as the “funny business guy”. I do my best to let my personality shine through the stale business veneer that almost all the other online types use as a tactic to earn your trust. Because I know you see right through that I created this site to showcase the real me, flaws and all, so you know I’m human.

Here you’ll find:

  • links to my latest projects
  • sketchy works in progress
  • ideas that are floating around in my head
  • and most importantly a way to get in touch with me

Now it’s your turn. You now know something about me, tell me something about you.

– Imani Lateef

Testimonial 2

“Jermaine was the Executive Editor when I worked at Glass City Connect from 2009 to 2010. We worked together on a daily basis.

During that time, Jermaine proved to be incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He always had an efficient strategy lined up to make our work go smoothly and was excellent in communicating his ideas to the rest of the team. Jermaine exhibited strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy. These qualities most notably translated in his ability to motivate a team to care about its project and be invested in the project’s success.

I heartily recommend Jermaine and would be only too happy to work with him again.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Jermaine. We worked together at the S.E.T.T. Institute. He impressed me, as well as other staff, with his professional work ethic, and unique ability to create, choreograph, and direct, award winning presentations for SETT’s peer educator performers. Jermaine was also a valuable asset to SETT’s School of Urban Life (SOUL) Program taught in the Toledo Public Schools. As the program coordinator of SOUL, I witnessed on several occasions, Jermaine captivate a classroom with his style of teaching. Many times to the point where students did not want to leave at the end of the period. Truly an accomplishment when working with 7th and 8th graders!! A brilliant young talent, Jermaine will be a valuable addition to any team or project, he is a part of.”
