SMiRK Studio was forged from a need for relatable Caribbean representation in education and everyday communication. We’re fuelled by a passion for quirky illustration, a love of scintillating local culture and the unquenchable desire to tell our collective stories.We believe that each of us has a story to share and with creativity and ingenuity, we could craft messages that resonate and reverberate.
We illustrate quirky things for cool people and organizations. Also, in an effort to empower storytellers, we take action and create the cute Trinbago-inspired resources we wish existed. In two twos (translation: very soon), you would be able to grab your favourites from our online store. Until then, have a gander at some of our favourite illustrations and items from these adventures.
What Our Clients Say...
Amazingly talented!! Rae helped me through the whole process as this was my first book and I had no idea what I was doing. I will definitely use Rae again as I plan to write more books! She was so wonderful to work with!! I highly recommend SMiRKStudio if you are looking for an illustrator!
Rachael has read my mind at every stage of the project. She was able to guide me through unfamiliar terrain, present new ideas for publication and help create books I’m proud of! I can’t wait for the reopening of school, to enjoy the many “aha!” moments these resources will inspire in my young learners.
Rae is the best. Patient, enthusiastic and super encouraging! Classes were so fun and really put an interesting spin on art. Inspired me to take the leap and create my very own comic!
SMiRK Studio helped our ideas to come alive! With just mere words describing what I needed the outcome to be, Rachael was able to visualise, conceptualise and successfully produce an end result that I’m proud of. My characters now have characters!
SMiRK Studio exceeded my company's goals and expectations. They were, patient, professional and communicative. I appreciated that they understood the language I was speaking (most times) and the desires conveyed. I'm grateful and delighted to obtain high quality local service and delivery. That's what SMiRK Studio has offered and that's what was provided.
I really enjoyed working with SMiRKStudio - the process of figuring out what I wanted, the questions asked and feedback given were all appreciated. Project was completed way ahead of schedule! Follow our journey here.
You are the best. Listened to everything SlitheringAidan wanted and created Avatars that not just looked like him but somehow portrays his personality and character. The Avatars are fun, whimsical and engaging. It was easy to talk to you. We felt like friends throughout the entire process.
I think I came to the right place. The guidance and information they provided was really valuable to me, being so new to this publication world. The patience and professionalism was a breath of fresh air. I will definitely be using them again for my future projects. My money was well spent.
