Started from the will to be better and help others do the same

According to our Founder, Samuel Lasisi, learning design was a life-changing experience for him and he wanted others to experience this too. His passion has been to impact and transform the lives of others through helping them learn design and he never turned down the opportunity to do so.

He took initiative and started off in 2018 using various mediums such as Google classroom, telegram and even Whatsapp amongst others to facilitate learning and this has yielded amazing results.

However, with the growth of the learning platform and the need for a better structure to facilitate more solid learning – VERDAC was born.

The Problem

People should be able to learn design skills and earn a living off it!

In today’s world, the journey to self-development and establishing a career path is tough for an average African Youth. Vices like poor learning systems, overly expensive tuitions, etc make it even more difficult and contribute to the unemployment rate across the continent.

At VERDAC, we believe that design education should be accessible to everyone and the universe agrees with us. Research shows that demand for UI/UX and Graphic designers is expected to rise 14.9 percent over the next 10 years and 5% over the next 3 years respectively.

I started my design journey with Verdac, their teaching skill and detail is second to none. I will absolutely recommend to anyone looking to start or improve their design skill.

The Baby Steps

In 2019, we created a free design course and the results were overwhelming

In 2019, we created a free design course and the results were overwhelming

We launched the Versatile Designer Course in 2019. Our aim – To tackle unemployment through design education, producing remarkable designers to satisfy the growing opportunities in the tech space.

We had a mind-blowing turnup of over 250 students across Nigeria and to date, we still get positive reviews from the designers who have made careers in design through their learning experience with us.
The rapid growth however was more than expected and there was a need to restructure not just to accommodate the growth but to ensure that the learning quality is not compromised.

This is what VERDAC is providing – a platform to handle the exponential growth of our learners while availing them with the highest quality of design education, equipping them to be global design leaders.

We moved from WhatsApp to a learning platform; Google classroom, but I couldn’t catch up with others because of personal limitations. Even though I didn’t finish it then, I was never the same

I partook in the Verdac design class in 2019 and It was a great start for me. The assignments were eye-opening, i was able to dig deeper into design fundamentals.

A step further

The opportunity in a global pandemic

At the start of the pandemic, the world was set to a standstill with crisis hitting the wellbeing of millions. People, businesses, and companies felt its impact and as a way of giving back, we hosted 2 free design training open to youths who were looking to start a career in design or tackle their unemployed situation. These classes were a hit – amassing over 150 students.

As we all know the aftermath of this pandemic, ushered in the remote work and skyrocketed the increase in demand for people with various skillsets – designers included.

VERDAC is aligned to help meet this global demand for designers through its training.

I attended the classes in 2020 and learning with Verdac was the beginning of an interesting journey, it helped me kick off my design career and I’m eager to learn even more

Make it all go round!

Expanding our offering into more tech disciplines!

Africans are talented individuals, brimming with potential, yet there exists a significant gap in the tech workforce that can be filled globally by African talents, especially in a continent where unemployment rates soar and people live on less than $10 per day. 

We aspire to assist Africa in making a difference in the world while reshaping the narrative of every African talent.

“>Verdac Tech aims to address this gap by partnering with the top 1% of instructors to create high-impact cohort-based (and Micro) courses on personal and professional growth for African learners worldwide.

I personally enjoyed working with the resources shared with us and I like the fact that the facilitators are always eager to answer questions whenever I’m stuck on any project.
