Bagio White the creative director and graphic designer that’s taking the industry for an uproar said that he came from a very humble start.

“I remember I was just sitting in my dorm room and I remember I was watching Jersey Shore and I said to myself…I could definitely create a dope magazine cover with them, that would be dope! And from that point, I decided that’s exactly what I’m gonna do and I even manage to call it DOPENESS” Bagio stated.
