“I want to thank Trinidad and Tobago! Thank you everyone! This is to all the people for their support. I wouldn’t be anywhere without you. This show is for you guys!” - is how talismanic fashion designer, Anya Ayoung-Chee, affirmed her love for her country as she gears for January 31. She’s kicking off 2013 with a bang and the anticipation for ‘Fashion Rocks The Avenue’ is building…prominently. Her patriotism aside, the fashionista expressed a keen sense of eagerness and a slight nervousness as she prepares to drape Ariapita Avenue from 8 pm next Thursday with the wondrous, inner-workings of her mind. The hype is surely enhanced as this is her first showing in the Caribbean since winning…well, if you don’t know what she won, it’s safe to say you’ve been trapped in a dungeon!
When it comes to her, many can expect style…but substance to match. Project Runway Season 9 was swept away by Anya. Such is her prowess, diligence and overall allure, that she’s recognized now on a first-name basis. Branded! An entity of esteemed creativity and beauty in tandem, Anya captivated and mesmerized the Project Runway audience and took the crown home, flying the Trinbagonian flagship at full-mast. Now it’s time for her to retouch local soil and grace us with the sleek, elegant and enthralling designs that she’s unleashed on a global scale. From cable television to Twitter to the digital realm to word-of-mouth, she’s become a darling for the press and Trinidad can be guaranteed a high-octane event when Anya unveils her arsenal. She’s promised an eclectic array to dazzle the runway, and really…you’d doubt her? Ill-advised.
“This feels like the biggest thing I’ve done. It’s amazing how this was put together and built up. I’m so proud and thankful to showcase this. It’s beyond words how excited I am for this show. I’ve anticipated this the most of all since winning Project Runway and am eternally grateful the opportunity has arisen at this time,’” she divulged. She expressed a unique view on this occurring a mere few weeks before our revered Carnival festivities. “Usually, you might expect such a fashion show away from Carnival so that it gets full focus and isn’t diluted by the atmosphere but this show fuses Carnival together with fashion. They’re like twin sisters to me and are intricately woven. Although different, this is a chance to show how they go hand-in-hand,” she conferred as she shared her outlook.
Anya gleamed over the opportunity to place her creativity in the local limelight, as she sees this as the lifeblood and passion, not only for her personal endeavours, but as something indicative and representative of our twin isle. “Creativity and passion are what Trinidad and Tobago has in abundance. I’m very lucky that I get to combine both this Thursday. It’s a thrilling feeling…beyond measure. I get to return to that inner-connection of passion and creativity but also, there’s that connection reforged with the nation,” Anya admitted.
“The show sets out to be innovative. I want everyone to experience fashion in a brand-new way. It’s free and when last was something like this, of this magnitude, offered free to the public? It’s a tribute…an homage…it’s gratitude to the country. We want everyone to immerse themselves in this,” she conveyed.
She further confessed that this is a grand stage to magnify fashion locally and to highlight the cultural export potential that is bred here, not only through her work, but for aspiring designers as well. “Fashion is crucial and integral to so many facets of life. Not just when it comes to fetes or Carnival, but to everyday work and casual disposition. The taste of different folks is of course subjective, but the expression I’m allowed here…the level of raw expression is scintillating,” she added. Anya managed to let slip that there’s a high degree of pressure on this show as it’s her first foray back in some time, and also, not only would domestic and regional eyes be monitoring, but there’s the glaring and penetrative international microscope that’s placed on this.
“The Carnival influence won’t be subtle…I can tell you that. Whether it’s conceptual or aesthetic, the show is aiming to be mind-blowing and it’s not just about an assortment of showstopping elements…I want to show the wearable designs that’s there at your fingertips. Carnival and fashion have a tangential relationship and this show deliberately sets out to show fashion is for everyone. Whatever your disposition, there’s something for everyone here…of course, there’s pressure and it’s challenging but that’s one of the things I love about this. Like I said, my passion meets my creativity here. There’s no limit, no boundaries…no barriers,” she continued. To compound the night’s proceedings, she confirmed the presence of Machel Montano and 5Star Akil to add to the ambience. “It’s about unity and collaborations. Merging fashion and music is also a huge plus. We have so many things to offer here in our little nation. Let’s bring them to the world stage,” she concluded.

Sjaak Boessen graced us with his presence for a brief time in the late stages of 2012 here at Abovegroup Ogilvy as an intern intent on making his mark as a Graphic Designer. But what he did was not only leave a lasting mark professionally with his diligence and unbridled talent, but Sjaak also etched his name into the hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of working with him. His internship proved most memorable to us as not only did we encounter someone with the brightest of futures, the brightest of minds…but we made a lifelong friend, who we hope to see very soon again. This ‘flying Dutchman’ sent us a letter from Europe to recount his experiences here in Trinidad & Tobago as he embarks on the most fruitful endeavours. Have a read from one of the most talented creatives we’ve met!
A Tropical Internship
Contributor: Sjaak Boessen, Graphic Designer
Ogilvy & Mather, to me, has been a dream agency to work for…since the day I started Graphic Design…more than six years ago. To complete my Masters Degree (MA Graphic Design) at my university (Media, Arts & Design Faculty – Genk, Belgium), I was allowed an internship for two months. This was my final internship before I had to finally work with ‘the grown-ups’. Therefore, I needed to get a spot in an Ogilvy office and also, I needed one in a damn great location. Combining my favorite advertising agency and my love for traveling led me to Abovegroup Ogilvy (AGO) in Trinidad & Tobago
I believe that knowledge is key when it comes to creative thinking. A new concept is mostly created by combining two or more ideas that were normally not together. Without knowledge, creating new ideas would be tougher. One way to gain more knowledge is to travel. This is without doubt one of the best things a creative can do to enhance his or her vision of the world. With a better world vision comes a better understanding about one’s own place in this world. You meet new people with different ideas, methods and also, a different view on visual elements. It also offers a totally new aspect on the psychology of advertising.
Arriving in Trinidad…alone…felt weird as I realized that being away from my friends and especially, my girlfriend, could be really tough in the upcoming period. That evening at the airport (September 12, 2012 - Piarco, Trinidad), I met my first colleague, Zia Holder (Copy Editor, AGO). She was very warm and as soon as I hit the seat of her car, she became my personal guide. Talking about the history of Port-of-Spain and, Trinidad, in general, as well as the culture nowadays and everything in between – all were what we conversed about. I was overwhelmed by kindness – “Is this how the people in Trinidad are?” I asked myself. Soon I concluded that the people really were like that in Trinidad & Tobago. Because of this kindness I felt ‘at home’ really quickly. Sometimes being nice can feel like it’s forced or ‘the way to act to new people’, but this kindness felt real. People were interested in my country, how we do things, what I think about the hot and spicy food in Trinidad and also, how the male counterpart in the Netherlands is.
If I compare AGO to the companies where I worked in the past, I noticed that the vibe, flow or atmosphere is more relaxed than in my native Netherlands. I believe that this ‘not-too-uptight’ mentality enlightens the creative spirit within. A certain rigidness can lock the brain and makes it impossible to give birth to new ideas. I noticed this mentality even before I hit ‘Trini’ soil. Alex Smailes (Director, AGO) told me that I could be an intern in any department I wanted. I could be at the Creative Department, Strategy Department or both. I chose the latter.
Since I felt ‘at home’ pretty quickly, I felt like I could give my opinion quite early. Of course a new intern shouldn’t throw his own ideas in straight away but should watch the apple fall from the tree at first and see where it lands. Be humble. When you know how the people interact with each other and how the hierarchic structure is, you can start building your place within the team. When I reached the point that I felt I was a full employee, I knew I could pull projects towards me. If you can do that, you will feel like a co-worker and this allows you to leave a lasting mark on the company. For interns, you can make your own internship. Don’t wait until you get projects. If you think you can do it, keep pushing until you succeed. And don’t be afraid to fail or ask. This is your internship…you’re allowed to.
The thing I needed to adjust the most to was the timing in Trinidad. At home, two o’clock means two o’clock, not quarter-to-three. There were so many times that I was ready on time, but the person I had an appointment with wasn’t. I counted to ten…then thought about the fact that I am on a tropical island and in another culture. I needed to adjust. People shouldn’t adjust to me…I am the guest. Hopefully, I didn’t get accustomed to the weird timing to take back home with me when I departed on November 17. My teachers or customers won’t tolerate that and I’m sure they’d mentally slap me in the face.
Being under Marlon Darbeau’s (Creative Director, AGO) wing was an awesome experience. I wanted to steal his brain. It was really inspiring to see the methodology of a Creative Director (CD) and after this internship; my ambition to become a CD myself had grown even more. He taught me not to stop, to go one step further, sketch, push the limit and think in a three-dimensional manner. This ambition makes me a person that doesn’t always want to do what others ask me to do. I want to lead…yet be cooperative and a team player. This is one of the reasons I loved AGO so much. It’s an open space where people can give their opinion, work together and collaborate to reach a new level. You aren’t just a number on a resume who just does what is asked. It’s not like that there…it’s a conversation.
This internship was the experience of a lifetime. I met so many nice people, did great projects, loved the environment, chilled at the white-sand Tobago beaches, swam with dolphins, ate too many doubles (slight pepper, doh!), had the best roommate, had the most inspiring Directors and co-workers, made great friends, drank the best rum in world and ate bake-and-shark like a glutton. Thank You to everybody who made this happen! Thank You Abovegroup Ogilvy!
Here are some images of my time spent exploring the wonders of Trinidad & Tobago…CHEERS!

Mindscape by Abovegroup Ogilvy
Joshua Lue Chee Kong’s creativity and visual scope have marveled not only his fellow co-workers here at Abovegroup Ogilvy, but they’ve also mesmerized those who have randomly stumbled across his creations. Joshua was kind enough to offer some insight into the engine that drives his genius. Have a read as Joshua shares enlightenment into the ensuing designs…

These beings of pure imagination were born from the hunger to create; as this was the first time ever making anything three-dimensional. They were originally meant to get off the computer and actually use my hands to express my creativity. My main inspirations are KidRobot toys and Brendan Tang. Watching these guys’ awesome work made me want to do it myself.
These figures are from my visual memory of observing different cultures and their art that are of interest to me. Taking that wealth of knowledge, my mind subconsciously filters this information and these figures are born. They are made using the firm Super Sculpey clay, as the material allows me to gain the details and concepts I want to do. It’s all a work in progress and I’m still in the experimental stage of trying new ideas and getting feedback.
Their main objective is to inspire and tap into a new age of art, moving away from the traditional and into the contemporary realm - where one can merge art and design together, to eventually become a part of society. It is very important for people to travel and learn about different ideologies and look at how it can be applied locally. This is what we are desperately lacking in Trinidad and Tobago at the moment, as we are stuck in the ‘old’ ways and are not inspired. Or is it that we are afraid to try anything new? However, at the present moment, I am seeing an ongoing movement that will change all of this…but it is up to the people and the government to help sustain this energy.
I am planning to have more work done (with enough clay, of course, so I can keep making more creations) and garner enough to put on a show. I will let you know when the time gets closer…
In the meanwhile, have a look at some more of what I do when I channel my inner-creative…

With our vastly talented and versatile pool of employees, we realize that there’s a lot of knowledge and information out there, some hidden and some in plain view. You just may be surprised at what you can learn from someone, who you didn’t think had that side to them. Knowledge is power and we’re all about sharing so let’s get cracking as some of our employees offer a little insight, advice…and just a general ‘two-cents’ on things that make the world operable! Enjoy…from Abovegroup Ogilvy to you! As Zack de la Rocha said during his time with ‘Rage Against The Machine’ - “What better place than here, what better time than now”...

If you ask anyone lately, not only have they heard of the massive hit ‘Gangnam Style’ by South Korean artist PSY, but they also know the dance. Whether they’ll admit to doing it…is another story. But how did a South Korean pop-song, sung entirely in its native language, become the biggest hit of 2012 and more importantly, the most-viewed YouTube video ever?
We are (at last!) living in an age where barriers across language and geography are slowly and surely eroding. With the creation of sites such YouTube, platforms for content from remote, non English-speaking markets, that previously had a minuscule broadcast reach, are being established. Although English-language content produced largely in the US still has the furthest global reach, foreign content, whether with subtitles or in dubbed form, is now no longer merely considered to be a niche market and is more accessible than ever.
Nowadays, you don’t have to be a proud polyglot like myself to enjoy ‘Anime’ or Latin American telenovelas online. Due to the increasing demand for local-language foreign content, there are a growing number of language and country-specific sites such as Youku in China and RTube in Russia. There are even sites such as Viki, a Singapore-based site which has its own community of translators, that provide direct translations and subtitles for TV and movie clips into various languages. And judging by the success of the European Film Festival, now in its sixteenth year, which takes place annually at MovieTowne Port-of-Spain, it may be safe to say that Trinis are joining the ranks of people worldwide who are seeking out media content in foreign languages.
As this trend continues to grow, there will be an increase in high-quality content in other languages being made, which will lead to global-cultural interaction on an unprecedented scale. No matter where we live, no matter what language we speak, we will all be able to access, enjoy and be entertained by content in vastly different languages, like Chinese, Turkish or Korean. And if you don’t believe me, just ask PSY…

Shimmering sky…check. Friendly faces…check. Groovy tunes…definitely.
Fête de la Musique, a yearly event organized by the Alliance Française of Trinidad and Tobago, together with the Copyright Music Organization of Trinidad and Tobago (COTT), brings all of the above to anyone who dares for a musical adventure.
The fête got its start in 1982 when The French Ministry for Culture (France) organised the festival. Now, it is held in more than a hundred countries in Europe and across the globe. The distinctive fête invites professional, amateur and other musicians to entertain intimate, as well as larger-scale crowds.
Once staged at the Boys Scout’s Association, then at Pier 1, this year’s fête will be staged on 21 June (the day of the Summer Solstice) and will be scattered across four venues in Port of Spain: Coco Lounge, Drink Wine Bar, Fiesta Plaza Movie Town and Shakers on the Avenue.
These different locations will inspire festivalgoers to pop in on locations well known to Trini limers and in turn drop in on eclectic mixes of music. Best of all, on that Thursday night, the entrance fee to all of the venues will be zero dollars and zero cents. Who says that good things do not come free? (The alcohol is on you though.)
It is that full scope of spicy-sweet music that will create a feel-good vibe, as the fête never limits itself to one genre. Patrons find themselves swaying, dancing and tapping their feet to melodies they may not have heard before. In 2011, for instance, Fête featured the likes of Gyazette’s calypso-rock, Dayo Bejude Jazz Project’s smooth tempos and Freetown Collective’s lyrically conscious tunes.
Last year the line-up also included: 12 the band, Nebula868, Mungal Patasar and Pantar. This year expect to be entertained with performances by: 3 Canal, Jointpop, Lil’ Bits, H20 Phlo and several other incredible artistes.
See you there as we celebrate making music!

Around 300 Trinbagonian songs go unnoticed by the masses every year says Rubadiri Victor, musician and president of the Artist’s Coalition of Trinidad and Tobago (ACTT).
According to Victor the songs are either not recorded or only a handful of loyal fans purchase or listen to these recordings.
So he and his colleague, Sheldon Manoo, tired of seeing talent slipping under the carpet, created a 2-hour radio show designed for the specific purpose of showcasing Trinidadian musical brilliance.
The name of the show: INDIGENOUS — Mainstreaming The Local Under Ground.
Victor and Manoo had been in negotiations with the Caribbean New Media Group (CNMG) for about six months. Finally, on 17 May 2012, they got their wish. Every Thursday from 8pm to 10pm, on the Talk City 91.1FM station, the hosts play only local music.
This, however, is not the feature that makes the program truly special.
Artistes need not worry if their music does not fall under what is traditionally classified as Trini style. To Victor, Trinibagonian music is “music made by a Trini”. He says that Trini artists bring their own sensibility to their work, a discernment that is no doubt rooted in the Trinidadian life experience.
And music not necessarily created by a Trini, but that has a distinctive Trini flavor: the rhythm, the way we serenade with drums, the special way we improvise on a guitar — that is Trini music as well.
He and his colleague will accept Trini Rock, Trini Reggae, Trini Funk, Trini Fusion, Trini Hip-Hop, Trini R&B, Trini Jazz, Trini Electronica, Trini Rapso and many other genres on the show.
Victor feels very confident about the last two weeks. The content he has received is an interesting range of musical genres that truly represent the talent and diversity of the islands.
This is definitely something I think artists of any age should participate in. The opportunity to showcase music on a large-scale is a huge deal. Who knows what this kind of exposure could lead to? It is definitely an exciting step in the right direction.

We are very proud of Anthony Baptiste recent graduate of the Digital Media Studies program in UTT.. He is one of 15 International applicants to be accepted into the prestigious Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
Here is an excerpt from an inspirational backgrounder on Anthony written by Katrin Callender:
I’m sitting across from Anthony Baptiste, completely engaged in the story of his life. I’ve seen him a million times as I rushed about campus- his concentration fixed on his computer. I would never have guessed that such an unassuming guy would have a background that reads like a novel. And I am certain that there are many more surprises in store.
Baptiste was raised at St Dominic’s Children’s Home. Although he loved to spend his time by himself while there, he credits St. Dominic’s with teaching him how to be a gentleman, teaching him etiquette and instilling in him such lessons as the importance of getting an education; taking life seriously; making something of yourself; and giving back to society. He was also taught, and believes that if he goes after his dreams, they will come true.
It was while living with his sister, after leaving St Dominic’s, that Baptiste began exploring different career options in the field of graphic design. He had been interested in Animation since seeing the film Toy Story, but did not know that such a job existed or that Animation was even taught in Trinidad and Tobago.
It was Chance that illuminated Baptiste’s first steps along his path, in the form of a graphic designer who visited his secondary school. He introduced Baptiste to computer software, showing him how animation was done.
Eager to pursue a career in the field, the self-motivated Baptiste attended film festivals and listened to industry professionals, both local and international, as they shared their experiences. Baptiste also began researching schools, as he was and remains, desirous of expanding his knowledge of the field. Then Baptiste found out about the Diploma in Digital Media Studies: Animation, offered by the University of Trinidad and Tobago. He was very interested and enrolled. Baptiste describes the experience as a great one. The learned to use software and acquired the skills necessary to produce his own work.
Upon graduation and with the understanding that he would have to study more to achieve his goal, Baptiste continued research schools that offered Animation programmes. He found programmes that interested him and began the lengthy application process with the assistance of Mario Lewis, one of his lecturers while he had been a student at UTT. He acknowledges Lewis’s role in helping him to prepare a portfolio that spoke to the level of professionalism he works at.
Of the schools he had applied to, his preference was Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. This institution has offered animation classes since 1971 with a high rate of success, as students are taught by industry veterans, and graduates are usually snatched up by top studios in the industry.
Additionally, the college is known for its commitment to continuous advanced research, so that students are always at the cutting edge of technology. Naturally, Baptiste was elated when he learned that out of all the applicants for a place at this institution, he was numbered among the fifteen students selected.
Baptiste explains that his plans for the future include working in the field of Animation after completing the programme at Sheridan, in order to gain the experience of working in a studio, and produce work that is up to industry standards, before returning home to share his expertise and help to develop the local Animation industry.
He is committed to sharing his knowledge with at risk youth to let them know that anything is possible. Baptiste has worked hard and remained focused on his dream, and will continue to do so until they are accomplished. The honour of attending Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning will facilitate not only Baptiste’s growth, both academically and personally, but it sends a powerful message to youngsters who would pursue a similar course. The talent and dedication that Baptiste has exhibited, in spite of the challenges he has faced and conquered are an inspiration to us all.
This skilled son of the soil needs your assistance to raise the funds necessary to pursue studies that will allow him to contribute to our developing Animation industry. Your support will allow him the opportunity to continue to make us proud.
On Thursday May 10, 2012, join us in showing support for Anthony as he turns his dreams into a reality.

We’re already fascinated by how the Internet has become the single most important tool for information gathering, networking, social interaction, and virtually every aspect of our personal activities.
Over the last 7 years, our ability to connect with virtually anyone from across the globe has been simplified thanks to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and several other social networking mediums.
While the progression of these tools are creating opportunities, it is important to understand how these tools have shaped, improved or shifted our interpersonal relationships, and more importantly our ability to communicate effectively:
A couple of questions I think need to be taken into consideration:
1) Are we communicating more because of the increased capacity to contact anyone from a distance? If so, how are we communicating with them?
2) Are we getting involved in networking and community activities?
3) What sense of ‘belonging’ to communities do networked people have?
4) Are we sending the right messages to the right people?
5) How sure are we that the receiver of your intended message(s) understands your message?
Our increased ease and ability to send and receive messages in real time can become a double-edged sword.
We are inundated with information, messages, calls to action, ads, products…and the list goes on. It’s easy to blast out a broadcast message to everyone on your contact list to get your message across; however, the responses are less likely to be favourable from someone who has no interest whatsoever. Wouldn’t it be better to personally contact the people you know would have a vested interest or who would benefit from your message? I mean are we becoming that lazy?
Another important element of any form of communication is ensuring that your intended messages are clear and understood by the intended receiver.
Ask yourself this: are we following up with them, or are we merely assuming that because they received your e-mail, text, bbm or phone call, your intended message was delivered? Failure to clarify this could be detrimental.
Are We Connecting?
The Internet has provided us with the ability to expand our reach and connect with anyone at anytime. As a result, we are witnessing a movement towards ‘networked individualism’.
The social network revolution has provided the opportunities — and stresses — for people to reach beyond the world of tight groups…People function more as networked individuals and less as group members.”
- Prof. Barry Wellman, S.D. Clark professor of sociology at the University of Toronto
We’re moving towards a networked society where people are adapting to new forms of interacting (online chatting, IM, online communities) mainly from indoors rather than the visible outdoors…another facilitator towards the privitisation of community.
Are we effectively leveraging our communication tools and more importantly, are we really functioning better as networked individuals?
What are your thoughts?

Suggestive charades, push-up pies, and karaoke are just a few of the activities you can expect at a Bar Wars tour.
Bar Wars is a new project produced by Abovegroup Ogilvy and brought to you by Carib Brewery Limited. It comprises of a 15-week TV series.
The Bar Wars events are set to occur three times a week from Thursday – Sunday and Tuesdays between the hours of 6-8pm. We will be visiting 24 bars over the next two to three months, in order to select the top eight teams (the top scoring teams) from the Bar Wars run.
Each event includes 5 rounds of questions in the following categories: Music, Sports, General Knowledge, Entertainment and a final qualification round involving karaoke.
On Friday (March 23, 2012) we kicked off Bar Wars at Darin’s Bar in Diego Martin, followed by a crowded Smokey & Bunty’s on Saturday March 24th where the street adjacent was closed off for the event.
Smokey & Bunty’s was jam-packed with enthusiastic and highly energetic patrons eagerly trying to assist the teams with the trivia questions and jeering on the participants.
The crowd went wild as the teams were acting out the suggestive charade words and Bar Wars host, Sunny Bling from 94.1, provided his colourful and comical commentary.
Here are a few snapshots from the event:
