Ms. Debbie Estwick has been known to me in a professional capacity for almost four years while she headed the Integrated Marketing Communication Department of the University of the Southern Caribbean. Over the years, she has demonstrated technical skills and competencies in branding, design, web design and management and media writing.

Ms. Estwick is credited with the rebranding of our Satellite Sites in Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Guyana, as well as the Main Campus and Tobago. She was also instrumental in the development of our internal communications using online notices and bulletins and the redesign and updating of our University webpage.

Debbie has made a significant contribution to University life through her creativity, her knowledge of the information communication technologies and her work ethic. She is skilful at creating concepts and designing campaigns and events and has an eye for detail.

In 2014, we wanted desperately to take our marketing and promotional materials up several notches but like most charities we didn’t have the financial or human resources to do so.  Debbie Estwick came on board to provide her services that made it both possible and affordable.  This creative genius knows her “stuff”. What is extraordinary also is that Debbie is a creative writer, a skill rarely found in designers.  Among the projects she has worked on with us over the past two years have been our Renew Magazine; development of our brand icons and promotional materials, positioning our brands in the digital 21st Century world. In 2015, we received commendations from the Rt. Hon. Freundel J. Stuart, Prime Minister of Barbados, on our statistical research that Debbie presented as infographics in our Renew magazine. If you want professionalism, competence and integrity, you will find that and more in Debbie.

Link Up for Life is an annual campaign of the University of the Southern Caribbean that emphasises the values and ethos of the University and how they contribute to bettering the social fabric of our society, connecting the University with partners, collaborators and government ministries while engaging students, organisations and the general public. From its inception, Debbie worked to develop and manage the Link Up brand, promotional campaigns, PR and experiences. I worked with her one year for Link Up for Life: Nip it in the Bud - a health emphasis Link Up campaign in partnership with a United States of America based charity, HANDS International. The Link Up campaigns served to position and cement USC's place, in the eyes of the government and public, as the values-based tertiary education institution in the southern Caribbean. Debbie's strategic mind, design, branding, public relations and management skills, along with her positive, results-driven and can do nature, have made it a pleasure to work with her.

Training & Education Feedback

“The Design Management course was very, very useful for me. It helped me gain clarity on just how wide design management is and how powerful it can be once used correctly…”

— Tanya Marie Williams Rhule

“…after the class research and interactions, I believe holistic design thinking can evolve into a “regional culture”, forming an ideological structure that can respond to social, political and cultural questions in a manner relevant to us.”
— Jason de Lancey

“The benefit I gained from Ms. Estwick as a Caribbean designer and a faith based practitioner added a unique dynamic that allowed me to grow in the areas of brand building for cultural enterprises, empowered by faith based business practices.”
— Kyron Jeffers
