Ep. 1 – Living A Quiet Life 🤫
Our first podcast episode featuring Dana Tanamachi
Dana Tanamachi might live a quiet life, but her custom typography and illustrations speak volumes. Dana joins us for our first-ever How You Create podcast episode to discuss the tools she uses, how she works on a creative project, and her relationship with money. She starts by giving us some more history on how she went from creating murals to spending seven months illustrating the books of the Bible.
About Dana Tanamachi
Dana Tanamachi is a New York City-based artist and designer who enjoys living a quiet life and working with her hands. In 2009, an impromptu chalk installation for a Brooklyn housewarming party landed Dana her first commission for Google and set the popular chalk-lettering trend—and her career—in motion.
After working under design icon Louise Fili, she opened Tanamachi Studio, a boutique design studio specializing in custom typography and illustration for editorial, lifestyle, food, and fashion brands.
She has been commissioned globally by clients such as Target, Nike, USPS, Penguin Books, Ralph Lauren, Instagram, and West Elm. Named a Young Gun (YG9) by the Art Director’s Club in 2011 and a Young Creative to Watch by HOW Magazine, she has had the distinct honor of creating custom cover art for O, HOW, and TIME Magazines.
