FROM THE BEGINNING
I’m Stephanie Tinnirello, a Graphic Designer based in Boston, Massachusetts. From the time I picked up my first crayon, I desired to be an artist. I spent my childhood dancing, drawing, designing holiday items, greeting cards for family members, and creating collages using fashion, travel, and lifestyle magazines. During one Thanksgiving, surrounded by my Sicilian family, my Aunt Yolanda asks me what I want for Christmas. My response as a two-year-old was “a thing of paint and a nice doll.” Many years later, frequently reminded by the memory - thanks to my cousins, my response would linger into my career and spark a wild interest in all things related to the Arts.
After graduating from Mount Ida College in 2007 with a Graphic Design degree, I started my career in publishing, my goal industry, and in 2008 began working on freelance projects for non-profit organizations creating marketing materials. While working with some of the best publishing companies, a great recession was growing larger. The impact embraced me into a fun unknown career path full of unexpected industries plus a journey of new skills and new roles while working with a diverse group of teams. Over time, and continuously working on, I creatively reconstructed my career. For more than ten years, I utilized my design skills in various projects for a variety of industries: ✪ Travel ✪ Marketing ✪ Non-Profit ✪ Real Estate ✪ Law and had advertisements published in Boston Magazine, Improper Bostonian, The New York Times, Boston Homes, The Boston Herald, The Boston Globe, Boston Fashion Week website, Boston.com and NorthEndWaterfront.com.
My interest in photography increased while creating a variety of print and web projects and editing photographs for clients and businesses. In 2014, after traveling to Rome and Ischia (located in the Gulf of Naples) for a family trip meeting my grandfather's side of the family, an idea came to mind. Years later, I moved to Boston with a vision to invest more in the city and the rest of the world. It was just the beginning of opportunities forming and so much more. Fast forward to today, I have a collection of locations including Boston, New York City, and the Caribbean. In 2019, I had the opportunity to photograph two book signing events during the 6th Annual Boston Design Week 2019.
Life is a full circle as I connect the dots. I dedicated to creating lasting impressions with my love of color and art as a graphic designer while investing my time in assisting and promoting events for AIGA Boston, Make-A-Wish Massachusetts & Rhode Island and Project Smile along with my other roles. Available for freelance work or collaborating opportunities.
