Tinisima Creative specializes in custom, personality-driven branding and web design .

My goal with every beautiful project is to help you attract the clients of your dreams.
Because, yes, you can tell your clients why you’re exactly what they’re looking for.
But showing them why is much more powerful.

Tinisima is named for the spirited, 20th-century photographer, artist and revolutionary Tina “Tinisima” Modotti. Her photographs and artwork exemplify the soulful power of art, on both an individual and cultural level. To me, there was no better inspiration for my company, work and amazing clients.


Meet the founder: Tina Paredes

Hi, I’m Tina!
Anyone who knows me well would probably tell you that I’m very curious—about people, about architecture, about history….about a lot of things. But what can I say? I’m drawn to learning.

If I’m not designing, I’m pursuing these curiosities as much as I can. You might find me volunteering at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum exploring all their behind-the-scenes programs, learning how to make vegan desserts, or taking a walking tour of LA’s beautiful Art Deco buildings. Most recently helping out with LA Compost learning how to reduce food waste and help educate others!

Like Tina Modotti, I got my start in photography. But pretty quickly into my first job at a newspaper photo lab, I found myself delighted by what was supposed to be a tiny aspect of my work: designing portfolio websites for the photographers.

It wasn’t long before I left photography behind and pursued web and graphic design full-time. I learned the ins and outs of designing for business working in-house at major brands like Old Navy, Dermstore, and Guitar Center .

Eventually, I transitioned into agency work. It was there I discovered the thrill of a diverse portfolio of clients—big and small, each with unique needs. I designed everything from glossy print ads and packaging, design and coding for emails, to storyboards and websites.

In 2016, I started Tinisma Creative so that I could focus on the clients I loved to work with, and I’m happier than ever. Today, Tinisima mostly serves creative professionals in the beauty, lifestyle, wellness, entertainment and interior design industries.
