Design Objective

I'm a co-founder of Design Objective, Trinidad's first and only professional graphic design organisation, focused on workshops, talks, membership and improving the wider Caribbean's design landscape. I took lead on the development of DO's identity and the first round of its website design. I'm currently working on the second release of a more powerful website that can manage our new membership and events databases. I also share responsibility for promotional and event design.

Crispy Solutions

Crispy Solutions deploys high-end web and mobile services, and needed to find a way to distinguish themselves from the (very saturated) market of general-service website and app developers. I developed a custom variable font for this project (aptly called CRISPY), and worked using Python and Drawbot to produce iterations for animation, and to produce individualised, random-instance business cards with dynamically-generated wordmarks. I'm currently working on their website, which makes use of the font's width axes in ways that aren't possible with print.

WORK

I'd love a chance to work with you.

The St. Kitts & Nevis Citizen 2018

Editorial design, art direction and custom type design for The St. Kitts and Nevis Citizen, a government-published magazine created by OPEN Interactive, aimed and increasing citizenship-by-investment. Special highlights on this project included the direction of photography and creation of custom typographic elements inspired by Kittitian colonial-style architecture.

Caribbean Mental Health Foundation (WIP)

Identity and website  design for the Caribbean Mental Health Foundation, a recently-formed organisation operating between public and private sector interests, toward the improvement of mental health services and attitudes in Trinidad and the wider Caribbean. This was my first project rolled out completely with Python in Drawbot, and at the end of the project, the client will have an executable bit of software with which they can produce their own brand materials (that's still in progress).

Eleanor Street Studios

Identity for a full-service, high-end music production studio in Trinidad. Special emphasis was made to reflect a dynamic company that could respond to any kind of work —especially important in Trinidad, a country dominated by genre-specific production studios.

Baxter (WIP)

Baxter is a distinctive sans-serif typeface with an opportunistic horizontal stress, designed for text at its lighter weights, and display at the higher extremes. Work on this is ongoing (a little everyday) and the hope is that it will be ready by August 2018 for its first version's release. Four weights are planned, with the second release including italics.

THE GUARD

Layout design and art direction for The Guard, a since-cancelled art book cataloguing a performance piece by Nyugen Smith, covering issues of occupancy, race and the legacy of slavery.
