I am Tina Touli, 
a multidisciplinary graphic communication designer, art director, maker, speaker and educator. I enjoy to build solid concepts and to constantly blend things from the physical and the digital world, working across different platforms and mediums. I work in a great variety of design fields such as branding, typography, editorial design, web design, illustration, animation, etc.
I currently work at Tina Touli Design, my private London based multidisciplinary studio and I teach at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
I have been invited to present my work in different events, for instance, the Adobe Live Stream at OFFF Festival in Barcelona and the Adobe Creative Meet Up in London. My designs have been repeatedly awarded by associations like L’oreal Professionnel Paris, Hewlett Packard, Adobe, Transform Awards, European Packaging Design Association, etc. In addition, my artwork has been published in various publications, such as the “Creative Packaging Structures” and the “Playful Graphics”.
What defines me the most is persistency. I enjoy to continuously challenge myself, by experimenting and setting up new goals, never giving up on them. What motivates me and keeps me going is the excitement of learning and creating something new, something different from what I did last time.
