Meet Nabil, a true jack of all trades. He can do anything and everything from graphic design to DJing to fashion design. We interviewed him back in 2015 and since then, he’s grown to be an incredible artist and great pal. As we’ve been raising money through our JC Relief Squad to go toward meals and supplies for essential workers during this time, Nabil offered to use his I Heart Jersey City designs to sell products with all proceeds going toward our efforts. We couldn’t be more thankful for him and his generosity!

What’s your name and what do you do?
My names Nabil, and that’s a tricky question but a bunch of things it depends on the day of the week and what mood I’m in, but lately I’ve been focusing heavy on design & art.
How long have you been designing and dropping clothing + accessories?
As far as design I’ve been doing that for about I wanna say 3-4 years now, and dropping clothing & other stuff for the past 4 through various brands and random projects.
What inspires you and what’s your creative process?
Everything, really. I’m one of those people that once I’m interested in something, I look into everything I can get my hands on the subject. I’d say my creative process normally starts from there I’ll look up something I think is cool and just start pulling references that I want to sample. It’s kinda like being a producer you pull from past things/experiences to make something completely new.
We know you originally released the I Heart Jersey City design months ago. Why did you decide to re-release the design to support JC Relief Squad?
Yea originally when I made it, I didn’t have a complete idea or even plan on making it a tee. Just felt like it was something the city needed with everything that was going on at the time. So when the chance to do something with it that would help the city, I figured why not.
As a creative, what are ways people can support you during this time?
Honestly, sharing work is the easiest way to support. It literally costs nothing and you never know who will see it. I’ve gotten potential clients off people sharing my work before, so I firsthand know the power of it. Obviously, purchasing work in any form also helps but even if you can’t, just paying attention and sharing work helps.
Where can people find you and your work?
So I recently launched a new portfolio site called internettaughtme.com, so if you wanna check out some of the old stuff I’ve done, that’s the best place besides my Instagram – @nvbilll. I usually update that periodically with new stuff I’m working on.
