With the constant flow of awesomeness on our social media pages, we just had to share our graphic designer with the world. Meet Woelinam Lumor an aspiring and awesome graphic designer.
KuulpeepsUCC: Good morning.
Woelinam: Good morning Guys.
KuulpeepsUCC: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Woelinam: I’m Woelinam Kobla Lumor, a level 300 student of this school offering Computer Science. I attended St. Benedict JHS & Motown(Achimota SHS) and I’m the last born of two(2) boys.
KuulpeepsUCC: Tell us about how you got to design for Sarkodie.
Woelinam: I was just doing something in free time trying to catch the eyes of the big guys. I did my designs and put them on twitter. Nana Aba Anamoah of GH One Tv saw my designs and retweeted and sorta recommended me.
KuulpeepsUCC: How was the experience working with Sarkodie?
Woelinam: At that time, they had their designs already so they did not use mine, but the recommendation from Nana Aba helped my digital outreach especially on twitter.
KuulpeepsUCC: What are your hobbies?
Woelinam: Ermm I like to listen to loud music, play video games, watch movies, design and swimming.
KuulpeepsUCC: So to music, who is your favourite musician and why loud music?
Woelinam: Locally I will say its Kwesi Authur, La Meme and Sarkodie. Internationally I like Rihanna, J. Cole, Kendrick and Sia.
KuulpeepsUCC: But why these guys?
Woelinam: I just love them
KuulpeepsUCC: So do you have a girlfriend?
Woelinam: Nah bro, I’m single and still searching.
KuulpeepsUCC: What do you look out for in a lady? For all you know, your crush may be out there.
Woelinam: Mmm… I don’t have a preference but I look out for Ass and sense. (laughs) Just Joking.
KuukpeepsUCC: Who and what inspires you in what you do?
Woelinam: A lot inspires me especially my dad and a few great designers I follow and the desire to become a really good designer like the best.
KuulpeepsUCC: You’re aiming really high. Can you tell us about some designers you look up to?
KuulpeepsUCC: Which type of designs do you do? I guess there are a lot of them so what’s your area of speciality?
Woelinam: Logo designs, complimentary cards, banners, brochures, fliers, invitation cards, music cover arts, letterheads, posters and I’m still working on my skills in animations.
KuulpeepsUCC: How much do you charge for a single design?
Woelinam: It depends on the design, I don’t have a particular price. Example a normal flier goes for 120gh and discounts come with the number of designs so if you ask for 2 designs you’ll be charged 200gh for the 2 and also logo prices are higher. A single logo design goes for 200gh.
KuulpeepsUCC: Wow then you really make a lot of money. In a month, how much money do you make?
Woelinam: (Laughs) Oh not that much oo. It’s fairly okay.
KuulpeepsUCC: So who do you work for?
Woelinam: I don’t work for anyone. I’m a freelance designer but now I’m with Kuulpeeps.
KuulpeepsUCC: So should we expect more designs from you?
Woelinam: Yes, yes a lot and better ones too. Just stay tuned.
KuulpeepsUCC: What have been your challenges so far?
Woelinam: Sometimes trying to balance studies and designing has been my greatest challenge. Also when I have a quiz and I need to meet a deadline for a design.
KuulpeepsUCC: So what’s up after school?
Woelinam: Okay so I have plans on starting a business on campus with a friend and work with bigger companies. And also, work during the periods the Sandwich students will be on campus. Later on, have time to perfect my designing skills and get a job with a reputable company and Artiste.
KuulpeepsUCC: That’s a great idea. Is there anything You’d Like To Add?
Thank you very much for having me guys, I appreciate it.
KuulpeepsUCC: You welcome.
