Welcome to 
Ayrïd by Design
Courses!

Mission: To contribute to the quality of design in Trinidad and Tobago, one course, conversation, project or product at a time. 
I have combined my education from Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta where I graduated with my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design (2012) with 9 years of work experience, as well as 2 years of teaching experience at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine to create each of these courses.
Come with a dash of curiosity and an open mind!
