I grew up watching the Prime Minister’s Best Village Competition on Trinidad and Tobago Television (TTT) many moons ago. It has been an institution in the cultural landscape of my twin island home since 1963. So it was a humbling experience to have my submitted logo design, chosen by the Best Village Community, to be the new brand for such a prestigious Trinbago legacy.
The following is a quote from a news article in the Trinidad Guardian Website posted on Monday 10th June 2019.
The new logo embodies the new identity and spirit of the competition and Minister of Community Development, Culture and the Arts Dr the Honourable Nyan Gadsby-Dolly says it is an exciting change and a strategic move for the competition as since 1963.
The competition, she said, has built a strong reputation for promoting “our nation’s culture and over the last two years, the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts has been reshaping the programme to enable the competition to unleash its fullest potential going into the future.”
The new logo came out of a national competition and was ultimately selected by the Best Village Community.
The new logo effectively communicates and represents the ideas behind the competition and conveys a sense of pride in the heritage and legacy of the longest running government, community based programme.
Gadsby-Dolly said she endorsed the new logo and saw this as the perfect time to launch it as T&T gets ready to host Carifesta at which the Best Village community will play an integral role in showcasing the nascent talent and culture of this country.Trinidad Guardian Monday 10th June 2019
