WHY I DESIGN

I LOVE MAKING THINGS BETTER!

My name is Tina Gomez and I have been making things "better with design" for 30+ years. 

After many years in roles such as manager, sales, trainer, administrative assistant, event planner, marketing and customer service, I finally decided to go to College of the Mainland in 2011 to get my Associate's of Applied Science Degree in Graphic Design so that I could learn to become a better designer and voila, a professional designer was born! 

 

It all started in 1985 when I worked at UTMB in Galveston. I decided to start an employee newsletter for 120+ employees because I love sharing ideas and teaching others what I know, plus it was a fun craft for me!  In the early days, I used an old computer terminal to typeset my newsletter and I would find graphics from books and tape them onto my printed copy, then make copies on the copy machine and distribute them. Remember, this was back in the late 80's. 

 

It grew from there. I started designing invitations, power point presentations, logos, websites, etc.  In 2000, I came up with an idea to create a wedding website that would include mini wedding websites.  I called it OurWeddingJournal.com. This was before wedding websites became so popular.  You could go to my website, find your bride and groom and get all of their wedding and RSVP, get directions, read a story of how they met and where they were registered.

I've also had the opportunity to teach a few classes at Galveston College for the Continuing Department.  Those classes include Photoshop for Beginners and MS Excel. 

I have designed so many things that I am very proud of from websites, t-shirt designs, invitations, logos, magazines, booklets, posters... etc..etc...  My portfolio website is just a small snapshot of a few of my favorites.
