​ TFDM Trains Women In Graphic Design

The Female Design Movement (TFDM), founded by Omobolanle Arinke Banwo, who is a brand identity, motion graphics & UI/UX Designer, has engaged hundreds of women in graphics design.

As a woman working on expanding opportunities for women by empowering them with digital skill sets, what has been your most challenging moment?

My most challenging moment is realising that there are a lot more women out there that we could be of help to if we had all the resources required. There are women in many other cities and locations writing every day, asking that we bring TFDm to them, and we can’t be everywhere right now. That’s the challenge, but we’re growing, thanks to the support from our partners. We could use more partners and sponsors to go to all the places we need to go and train as many women as possible.
