Today we’d like to introduce you to Maurice Stuckey.
Hi Maurice, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
My journey started in high school with 2 of my friends. We ran a small media company and we did many projects for many artists and businesses. After graduating, I realized we were doing so much work with so little recognition that we should do things for ourselves. From that point on I came up with “New Age Heathens” or “NAH.” for short.
We are a South Kansas City based brand changing the narrative on the word “Heathen”. We bring creativity to the community through our clothing, content, and media/graphic work for other businesses. 2021 was a year of major growth for me inside and outside of my collective. I found my passion for creating videos/graphic design in high school while studying journalism. I had no interest in it at first, but some things are just meant to be. I now find myself working on film and perfecting my craft. I hope one day the whole world will be able to witness and appreciate this creation.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Definitely not. The road is still stretching as we speak. I faced a lot of struggles with confidence. Being a younger creative I often surround myself with older crowds in hopes of gaining knowledge that can give me different ways to create. To me, my work is never satisfactory. But that’s what pushes me to keep doing better.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I refer to myself as a “Creative Director”. I specialize in manifesting imaginations. My clients tell me what they want and I do my best to help birth their creation. Although I do a lot, I’m known most for my graphic design and Videography. I’m proud of her far I’ve come with all of this. I remember starting at this software feeling lost because there’s so many buttons and tabs and now I pretty much just run through it all. My drive for storytelling is what sets me apart from others. I wanna use any piece I create to tell a story, no matter how small or irrelevant. I’m currently jumping into wedding photography and the more elegant side of things.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
Kansas City is beautiful. I like the way you can see the downtown buildings from different viewpoints around the city miles away from each other. However, I feel like we can use some work in the community area.
