I’m a designer from Trinidad and Tobago, and I'm looking for a job at MetaDesign.
Thanks for reviewing my application.
This page will let you know a bit about who I am and how I work, but I’m also trying to keep a decent journal of projects and works in progress on Instagram. I’m on Twitter too, and recently created a GitHub account for my Drawbot experiments/learnings in Python, and cool CSS snippets I may want to reuse some day later. I'm trying more and more to write about my process and work on Medium.
You can skip the intro (don't do it!) and visit my projects portfolio here.
Here’s the rundown:
I design brand identities, type, user experiences, websites, posters, and other very cool things. I’m currently based in Trinidad and I love drawing letters, simplyfying complex systems, writing code, and solving problems.
Most of my working time is spent designing for fresh brands and new products on tight budgets. I prefer collaborating with nimble, open-minded people, through transparent, flexible processes.
I prefer common sense over convention, and think that if something works, it works. Simple as that.
The best solutions will have challenges, and that’s okay. Good design is about solving problems, kicking ass, and taking notes for later. It’s best to do that as a team, and I prioritise high-involvement, invested participation from the people I work with.
I’m pretty chill. I believe that there should always be opportunities for learning, talking, drawing type I’ll never get paid for, taking a break, and generally stepping away from project work. In keeping with this, I dedicate a significant portion of my working time to learning, experimentation, and self-generated work. These days, I’m spending my off-time teaching myself Python – especially for automating graphic and type design tasks – and am working on a book typeface.
