Hi, I'm Agyei. I'm happy you're here.

I’m Agyei Archer, and I solve business problems with graphics, type and code.

Agyei Archer

I’m a designer and art director from Trinidad and Tobago with 11 years of experience, available to work on challenging projects and fun collaborations.

Most of my work involves creating brand identities, websites, digital products, publications, event invites, and other very cool things — all with a focus on solutions that integrate meaningful, considered graphics, strong typography, type, and lettering, and nimble, well-written code. My tools include the Adobe Suite, Glyphs App, Python, and JavaScript. I studied graphic design at the University of Trinidad and Tobago, and typeface design at The Cooper Union in NYC.

I keep a fairly decent journal of projects and works in progress on Instagram. I’m on Twitter too, and am getting better at saving Gists of interesting code snippets I may want to share or reuse later on Github. I write about work life and explore case studies on Medium.

In addition to client work, I am a founding member and current co-director of Design Objective, Trinidad and Tobago's graphic design membership organisation, and am working more and more on practice-based research around vernacular lettering and indigenous writing from the Caribbean. Most recently, I presented a talk on the development of my own type design work as influenced by vernacular typography around Trinidad at the Caribbean Digital V Conference.

These days, I’m spending my off-time playing with my dog, learning 3d for graphic design and animation, working more and more with Javascript, and drawing two typefaces.

I'd love to hear from you, whether it's about a workshop, a speaking engagement or your next project. ❤︎
