Experience Trinidad: Trilogy Magazine Series
My senior exhibition, Experience Trinidad is a virtual tour of Trinidad from the perspective of a native Trinidadian. I decided the best way to allow my readers to "Experience Trinidad" or any country rather, is to explore the land, meet the people, and enjoy the culture. I wanted to allow what Trinidad means to me to shine through my work, so for that reason, I have created a magazine trilogy, along with 3 posters that speak to each magazine topic. The magazine trilogy focuses on discussing Trinidad based on 3 categories: ISLAND, PEOPLE, and CULTURE to allow others to see the beauty of my home country and visit Trinidad.
The purpose of my project is to inform people of the beauty of my home country of Trinidad. I wanted to provide a digital tour of Trinidad and have the essence of the country speak for itself. The best way to understand a country and the premise of their identity is through the land, people, and culture. In order to accomplish my purpose, I created three magazines that would allow others to Experience Trinidad virtually.
Each of the three magazines reflect a category, with loads of imagery and plenty of dialogue to understand what is happening in each moment. Each magazine's cover follows a similar design to tie each category together because collectively they represent Trinidad. The use of cool colors, funky typeface, and photo-focused layouts is intended to allude to the tropical warmth of the ISLAND, the jubilant spirit of the PEOPLE, and the larger than life CULTURE that makes Trinidad a country that must be experienced.
