Tinisima Creative specializes in custom, personality-driven branding and web design.
My goal with every project is to help you attract the clients of your dreams. Because you can tell your clients why you are what they are looking for. But showing them 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 and my work.
Anyone who knows me well would probably tell you that I’m very curious—about people, architecture, history….about a lot of things. 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 when I started using the photos I took and incorporated them into album cover designs, fake billboards and magazine ads for school assignments, I found ways to build both passions while working at one of my first jobs at a newspaper photo lab.
It wasn’t long before I 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, Virgin Group, 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 2018, I launched Tinisma Creative full-time so that I could focus on the clients directly by doing as much as I can to help grow their business. Today, Tinisima mostly serves creative professionals in the beauty, lifestyle, wellness, entertainment, design and architecture industries.
