Franklin Emeka Ozomah, a talented Nigerian movie poster designer, has stated that there are numerous benefits to Nollywood as a worldwide recognized industry from Nigeria, adding that he has relished every minute of his involvement in this creative environment dealing with a diverse spectrum of audiences.
Ozomah, an award-winning graphics artist with seven years of industrial experience, stated that discovering the abilities he naturally possessed, such as his artistic skills, concept development, and drive to explore the creative world, was one of the things that helped him go far and today be celebrated as the best poster designer.
He added that he needed to go further to develop these skills so as to perfect his outputs and comprehend the nitty-gritty of the job, and that when accumulating materials and the necessary technologies, he needed to understand their operational mechanisms in order to make his job easier.
I am a product of grass to grace. I wasn’t inspired to do what I am doing today because of a need to compete with anyone. Rather, my motivation was to develop my talents and contribute my quota to the development of other people’s creative works.
