Sketches
 

The focus of the initial sketches was to develop a composition and explore the shapes and themes of the country’s cultural references, specifically music and tourism.

I wanted to create something visually similar to traditional travel posters and vinyl sleeves, taking inspiration from the flat shapes, natural flowing curves and grainy aesthetic.

.

It was important also to naturally incorporate both the Saltire and the flag of Trinidad & Tobago within the design.

Final Design
 

The vibrant colour palette was derived from a mix of Team Scotland and Commonwealth Youth Games Trinbago 2023 logos. Key visual references included the landscape of Trinidad & Tobago, as well as the Hasely Crawford Stadium that will host athletics during the games.

The result is colourful arrangement with a nod to the Caribbean landscape and stylistic references to the calypso music scene. The flags of both countries are represented within the composition, the black stripe of Trinidad & Tobago set within the athletics track, bringing the country together with the games.
