With the release of our fourth and final issue of Volume 2: Legacy, we say goodbye to a longtime family member of ours—Ndemazea Fonkem, our Creative Director.
"It’s with sadness that I leave my role as the Director of Design and Former Creative Director of Aspirants. At this point, it’s time for me to say goodbye to the team and the project. Since its genesis, this project has been my bread and butter, my escape, my pride and joy, and the prime cause of my happiness. It hurts to leave. But this will, hopefully, be a part of my legacy. Thank you for being a part of what I leave behind and what I’m remembered for."
Ndemazea Fonkem, Editor's Letter in Legacy
Ndemazea has been with us since Aspirants first took off over two years ago (wow, that was a long time ago) and it's with a heavy heart that we part and head in our separate directions. It doesn't matter where we are, Aspirants will always be something that ties us together. This community—this family—stays with all of us.
As we close these chapters, we're also starting new ones. For those that have been with us, thank you. For those of you that are just now stumbling upon Aspirants, we thank you too.
Here's to the new adventures we'll go on—together.
