I am Tina Touli, a creative director, graphic communication designer, maker, speaker and educator. I work in a great variety of design fields, both digital and print design, including branding, typography, web design, animation, etc. My work is mostly known for blending the physical and the digital world, working across different platforms and mediums.
I always loved communicating and expressing myself through any form of art. Since I was little I was keen on dancing, drawing, playing music, and others. A friend of my parents had a piano and whenever we were visiting I was always trying to play some kind of a melody. After I implored my parents for a while, they signed me up for piano lessons. That lead me to study on a Music secondary and high school. It was not only about music but also about art, acting classes, drawing classes, etc. Soon, I realised I enjoyed playing the piano and the violin just for me and for expressing myself.
However, it was not really my dream to become a musician. I was more thinking of becoming a mathematician, a physicist or an architect, till a friend told me about design, a field that would allow me to combine everything that I was passionate about - audio, motion, visuals, etc. I got into a Graphic Design course and really soon I fall in love with design and creativity.
