The Team

Joy-Ezeka-theDesignBenderAs part of my portfolio life, I work with small and medium enterprise owners to manage and create stories for their social media platforms, so that they can build their company’s brand, extend their reach and influence their audience in a powerful way.

I have a passion to motivate people to believe in their dreams, create experiences, that will lead them a step towards their passion and not give up when they fall. This is my story at the moment! I lost my job at the beginning of the year. I applied everywhere appliable but nothing was happening. And then I had my eureka moment! “Why wait for something to happen? Why don’t I make it happen?”. And I took that one big step, April 1, 2014 and started my own company, theDesignBender!

It’s been a long journey! Learning how to build a company from scratch, learning to deliver to people who have believed in me and are now my clients, learning to be a new wife , learning to be a mother, learning to love a foreign country that is now my home, learning to love being 30+ but most of all, learning to love the journey, not just the destination.

You can get in touch with me through email, thedesignbender[at]gmail[dot]com, follow on Facebook and Twitter.

Dream it, See it, Believe it, Create it and MAKE IT HAPPEN! Nothing is imPOSSIBLE!

    Joy, kudos to you for taking the leap of faith and following your dream. What better way to motivate others than by doing it in your own life. I wish you all the success you deserve. And thank you so much for visiting Tovarysh.

        You’re welcome 🙂 It’s hard to find out something about blogging awards, there seems to be little and sometimes contradictory information. The idea is something like a chain letter though (however horrible it sounds): you are passed on the award by a fellow blogger who likes you and thinks you’re versatile, and you pass on the award to other bloggers. I guess that’s pretty much it. If you’re unsure about the idea, feel no pressure to do it though!

      Thank you! I just tweaked here and there without having to pay for anything customized. I wanted to go out of my comfort zone. I tended to stick to the clean WordPress themes. But sometimes less is more just like yours!! I do like your clean look though!

    I really love what you have done with the Sorbet theme on this blog and I have just included yours as an example in a blog post, actually my favourite example. I don’t see the word customized at the bottom but you do seem to have customized it, so I wonder if that is because you have pro subscription or similar and customization is included. Just checking for accuracy on my post. Really like the menu icons by the way.

      Hi Karen! Thanks! It’s not customized, I designed the header using the same color that came with theme. And the background I changed it to white in dashboard-appearance-background. All that’s paid for is the domain name! Hope I clarified it for you!

        I’m not so good with photoshop and Autocad is easy for me to manipulate 🙂 Thank you. I didn’t even know I could incorporate a header design till blogging 201 assignments. Thanks again!
