If you’re building your own design studio, Tara Victoria is someone you’ll want to pay close attention to. As a graphic designer, she’s run the typical route – graduate school, freelance, big agency work, small agency work – ultimately to realize that where she really wanted to be was at home, running her own design shop and working for herself.
Tara is the founder of Hatch & Harbour Design Studio in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where she specializes in branding and print media as she works with small businesses that have a big passion for creating lasting and meaningful brands. Tara is also the author of a widely-read blog that focuses on design and fitness, two of Tara’s favorite things.
Tara is doing what we all long to do: running a design studio on her terms, and all from her perfect place to live. She has built an amazing body of work over the past 8 years and is living proof that you don’t have to live in NYC or SF to do great work and get noticed.
