Hi! I'm Tiff Bartel. I'm a designer, illustrator, and maker of things.

About

I’m a digital media designer, illustrator, and DIY enthusiast based in Winnipeg. I’ve worked both as part of an agency and independently.

I’ve been making gig posters (and other fun stuff) for the past decade, and my work has appeared in online and print publications such as Vice, Stylus, and The Manitoban, as well as in other (perhaps unexpected) places including The Chris Gethard Show and The 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards. I've done everything from character/concept design for video games, to UX/UI, to building puppets for The Winnipeg Fringe Festival.

I’m equally at home eyeballs-deep in code or elbows-deep in Speedball ink, and am a firm (and enthusiastic!) believer in bikes, dogs, and being nice. In my free time, I can also be found drawing comics or playing as part of the pup-punk band, Homeward Bound.

But enough about me – let’s talk about you. Together, let’s make good things happen.
