Poster inspired by Self-taught Prodigy

I stumbled upon a video of a 15 year old, self-taught engineering whiz from Sierra Leone, who collected spare parts from the trash to build batteries, generators and transmitters. Kelvin Doe became the youngest person in history to be invited to the "Visiting Practitioner's Program" at MIT. His story was so captivating that I immediately had to create a poster in honor of this young man. We complain about the lack of resources readily available to us and we use that as an excuse to underachieve, but Kelvin has defied the odds and persevered in the midst of his circumstances. And his main purpose to succeed was not money but simply to help his family acquire a better standard of living. Hats off to him.

50 Proud Poster Presentations.

So I got the opportunity to present my 50 Proud posters to The Honourable Vernella Alleyne-Toppin Minister in the Ministry of the People and Social Development and Arima Mayor Ghassan Youseph. They enjoyed the challenge of trying to name the icons on the posters. It is really  interesting to see how sometimes we remember a face but forget the name of that person. Remember Posters are still on sale- $100 for the poster set.

50 Proud

In a few days we (Trinidad & Tobago) would be celebrating 50 years as an Independent state. But how much do we really know about our history and the people that contributed to the development of this nation? I decided to do some research of my own on notable national personalities who shaped our destiny and quickly realized that I was in need of a history lesson. I was learning so much that I decided to create some minimalist portraits of these icons in our national colors ( Red, White & Black) to further extend this history lesson to the public. By simply highlighting some of the notable features of these individuals, I was able to draw on the viewers previous knowledge of their national history and ultimately stimulate dialogue about these influential personalities. I am aiming for 50 personalities so as I post, test your knowledge.

We take a Pride in our Liberty.

So it has been a while since I posted anything. I started a new job at the beginning of this year so my time just disappeared but that urge to create never died. My recent interest has been surrounded by the theme of nationalism. Maybe its because this year marks 50 years of independence as a nation and all the hype behind it. This recent project 'Pride in our Liberty' came to me recently when I was going through some design posters with quotes from famous designers. I then thought about the men and women of this country that made an indelible contribution to the development of Trinidad and Tobago as a nation, and their words of wisdom and guidance. These individuals formed the foundation of our history and unfortunately most of us are not aware of their words that brought a people together, words that broke racial barriers, words that made a statement to the world that we have a voice. I saw the importance of celebrating the words of these founding fathers of democracy. So please ............look at the posters, read them, remember them, share them and take pride in your liberty!!.
