This afternoon I have a Washington, DC wedding vendor spotlight for you all! Everyone, meet Tina and her Washington, DC based Design & Stationery company, Tabibi Design! Tina designs invitations and paper goods for weddings and has been working as a designer since 2000.
So I asked Tina some questions, so you guys could get to know her better ~ and then we have some amazing shots of some more of her recent wedding design & stationery work!
Q1. How did you get into invitation and stationery design?
I pursued graphic design after graduating from the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. Since 2000, I’ve worked as a designer for studios and in-house creative departments. Over the years, I’ve been asked by family members and friends to assist with their design needs but my departure into the world of invitation and stationery began with my own wedding in 2008.
Q2. Describe your style in ten words or less.
Fresh. fun. unique. modern. engaging.
Q3. What do you use/where do you go for inspiration?
Wow, good question. My inspiration comes from so many places. Web sites, blogs (such as yours), magazines, books, patterns, type treatments, photos, illustrations and many times from the client. The list is endless. My initial sketches for any project is a good way to brainstorm and gathering inspiration from all sorts of media allows me to define my thoughts.
Q4. What is your favorite thing about living in this area?
I love the Metropolitan area because it offers such an array of cuisines, culture, history, events and things to do. I live in Arlington and can enjoy the benefits of the suburban and city life in such a short distance.
Q5. What is your favorite music artist of the moment?
Hmmmm, this is a tough question because I have music for different moods. Whether I’m working in the studio or at a remote location, the ipod is on! I enjoy such a wide range of music. At the moment, my playlist consists of everything from Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, to Foster the People, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Rihanna, Mumford & Sons, and yes, holiday music! My latest download was the new Coldplay Album.
