Israel Ramjohn is a Multimedia Designer at WebFX. In his pre-school days he was playing with plasticine. In secondary school it was with paint brushes and clay. At the tertiary level and in the professional world now, he plays with the camera and the mouse. Israel has always been a visual artist and he sees any creative challenge as a potentially fun venture!
He thinks it’s a brilliant way to cheat life by getting paid to do something you actually really love. He loves all aspects of filmmaking and writing scripts (but that hasn’t turned a profit just yet).
On things that he loves, food comes in a close second. Israel has been cooking up a storm in the family business since he could reach the countertop and eating as much as he could fit in his big mouth. Dragon Boat Racing is the next love and he has been paddling since 2008, representing T&T at two IDBF World Championships and still training every weekend so all the extra calories balance out. Lastly, he loves to smile, because joy multiplies when it is shared.

Katrina then decided to make the next biggest move of her life and settle in Trinidad, the home of her Mother and extended family but now also a home to herself. She is out-going, personable and a little weird which are probably the characteristics that led her to Webfx, where she works as an Account Executive. Her passion for building relationships is key in her work and she loves to exceed expectations in everything she does.
Along with travelling Katrina enjoys relaxing on the weekend with plenty of wine and good friends. She is never shy and always up for a chat (with wine).

By day, Anton is a brand strategist, and by night he fancies himself a Carnival costume designer. He started his career in advertising many years ago as a bright-eyed intern in the strategy dept of an advertising agency and never looked back.

Carnival is his biggest love – both the festival itself as well as design elements in it. There is simply something different about that time of the year, and as a designer, it is a unique joy to watch your vision come to life with hundreds of masqueraders blissfully enjoy themselves wearing something you dreamed about for months before!
