I'm Tiarra.

I'm a Seattle-based visual designer/art director with 6+ years experience in multiple industries. I've touched work in advertising, tech, CPG and more. I like to come up with ideas just as much as I like to execute them. I don't know how to talk about myself through words on a page, but let's set up a time to chat and I'll tell you about the time I ________.

My career so far

From a saleswoman/stylist, turned to juice-barista, turned to aspiring visual merchandiser, turned to production/graphic/visual designer, turned art director –I've worked on a variety of ad and marketing projects, including social content, integrated campaigns, websites, microsites, CRMs, event marketing + branding, docs and decks ... I've chased ice cream trucks in order to get waivers signed, wrestled mannequins to fit in window displays — you name it.
