The Ooj has been beamed up to the big spaceship in the sky, but his legacy lives on through 5 Questions with… This time, Leah Jasmine gets intergalactic (planetary) with our Durban Designer for April, Zama Dlamini aka cosmicwhatever.

Thought is the Only Reality geometric design by Zama Dlamini


1. What’s your favourite thing to doodle?

Jellyfish, mushrooms, and UFOs. They all have a similar shape.



2. If you could move to any planet in the solar system (or beyond) which would it be and why?

I’d go for an Earth-like planet, but with fewer humans and more dinosaurs. Earth’s pretty lush, I’ve grown quite fond of it over the years, and dinosaurs are rad – people? eh.



3. You’re not just a designer, you DJ too under the alias Captain Cleo. How does it affect your outlook on life having these different creative outlets?

It’s really exciting being able to express myself with sound, as it occupies so much more space than images do. I like to think of all forms of expression as a creative outlet (including walking and talking) and I try to bring some of myself in all my communication/expression and always look to have fun doing it, as I believe that’s one of the most important things about being alive; having fun.



4. If you were an alien would you tell us?

I’d drop hints.



5. What are 3 things in your wardrobe you absolutely cannot live without?

My moonbag/fanny pack, a comfy pair of sneaks and a holographic something.
