The Female Design Movement (FDM), founded by Omobolanle Arinke Banwo, who is a brand identity, motion graphics & UI/UX Designer, has engaged hundreds of women in graphics design.
The workshop, which was organised with the collaboration of the VAV Art Organisation, held at the MacArthur Building, University of Ibadan, Oyo State, featured the use of technology applications to create designs and participants were given certificates at the end of the session.
Banwo, who spoke on how she developed her passion for designing as far back as primary school, explained that “For me, design was the way I could express myself. In primary school, I used to draw, not just for myself but for my classmates as well, and my teacher would see their works and immediately know I was the one who did it. I didn’t attend any design school.”
