What is a Tigerella?

A tigerella is a striped tomato. Bright red with orange stripes, it is a rare heirloom varietal smaller than other tomatoes, but better tasting and prettier. Tigerella Creative is a full-service design firm in Seattle, WA.

Why hire Tigerella Creative?

You have more ideas than time.

Starting a business, planning an event, or plotting an endeavor that needs a professional brand identity? 

Partner with someone creative, experienced, and flexible – who can deliver and then train you – not lock you into an ongoing expense. Don't burn out by trying to do everything yourself. Don't undermine all your hard work by putting out a half-assed first impression.

You're already wearing too many hats.

Maybe you hired people to get your website or social media started, but somehow let it all languish when they handed it off to you.

Now you need to refresh things, fix broken links, and it's all a giant drag because it needed to be done two years ago. Your website isn't mobile-friendly, the graphics are dated, and the last designer vanished with your passwords.

You find marketing stressful or boring.

Are you a creative person – an artist, an author, a musician – who just wants to focus on creating things? 

Maybe you hate even thinking about "selling" yourself. You know you need better marketing materials, a thriving social media presence, and more ways for fans to buy your products – but it's overwhelming. Get a head start and a simple marketing plan.
