About me
I Am Derrick Odafi, a 23 year old Creative from Dagenham, Essex. I am the Editor In Chief of my own creative magazine 'New Wave Magazine' and the Creative Director for an independent fashion publication, Cover Magazine. I have been involved in various projects within the creative industry, from working with clothing brands to being involved in the visual campaign launch of a start up application and working with artists on graphic content. I have also been a photographer for various projects such as look books and editorials as well as being a writer for stories on my Independent Magazine.
