The Designer Island Caribbean Creative Lifestyle Brand.

Designer Island, is an elegant, intelligent online publication highlighting some of the best in Caribbean creative life. We are inspired by everything about island life: the landscape, the food, and the creatives and makers working in photography, design, art, fashion, food and literature. Sharing profiles meant to inspire and entertain. Founded in 2011 by designer Tanya Marie, to share the work of creative practitioners in Trinidad and the wider Caribbean. Designer Island has since expanded into a full online magazine, partnering with writers, editors and photographers.

Who we really are as a Caribbean people.
We show you our Caribbean, as we know it. It’s the way we live, work, play, create and think, all through the eyes of creatives living on an island.

We are always on the look out for new talent to collaborate with: writers, editors, photographers and other creatives so if you're passionate about Caribbean creativity, culture and lifestyle, you're welcome to join us.

Let us show you why we’re so island.
