Oluwatofunmi Ojomo is a Graphic Illustrator/Designer and Handmade Paper Craft Maker.
She started in 2016 when a friend introduced her to Corel Draw. “I played around with the application, watched a couple of videos, practiced as frequently as I could and I discovered Graphic designing was another way to express myself, hence Graphic illustrations. I started paper crafts late 2017 when my sister needed a cake topper and she had no idea where she could get one on short notice.”
Electricity is the main challenge she has faced so far. “I’ve not had so many challenges so far except lack of electricity. It can be quite limiting to my creativity and sometimes I get really inconvenient deadlines.”
Her inspiration comes majorly from her surroundings, her experiences and also trends sometimes.
Speaking on the project she did that boosted her confidence, she says, “I was supposed to design a banner in 8 hours and that normally takes me 2-3 days but I stayed up all night and still came up with something really good, it was an amazing experience and I got really great reviews from people who saw it.”
Now, the graphic illustrator is looking forward to any opportunity to express herself and learn new things.”
On youth empowerment, she opines, “I think youth empowerment is a way of encouraging young individuals to take charge of what they’re passionate about and build it gradually into something profitable to them and people around them. The Nigerian youth can be empowered through encouragement and support from parents, family and peers. I’ve noticed that most youths these days just need a little encouragement and good advice.”
