87: Tiffany Egbert

Tiffany Egbert's a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, stylist, and self-described dance party enthusiast. She graduated ASU with a degree in graphic design in 2007. Since then, she's done creative work for Kitten Paws Vintage (her online storefront), River Jones Music Label, Transform Creative Ministries, and Spraygraphic Apparel.

When she's not running around with a camera, computer, sewing machine or pen, she's checking out the latest coffee joint.

Five things on your Inspiration Wall (real or imagined): Sunlight, old things, coffee shop conversations, dance parties, far away places

What was your last big project?

My last big project which is also an on going project is my online vintage clothing boutique, KittenPaws Vintage. I started KittenPaws about a year ago as kind of a creative outlet to get more into fashion photography. Previous to KP I would often buy brightly colored vintage clothing, "style" my friends in it and set up mini photo shoots. After some of this clothing
started to pile up, I decided to open up a little shop. I initially sold through Etsy but designed and launched a stand alone site this past January. Another project I've worked on recently is a line of illustrated greeting cards inspired by vintage children's story books. I'm very inspired by old things, apparently.

What's your next big project?
I'm going to be spending the summer in NYC working for a non profit art organization, Transform Creative Ministries. The basic goal of the project is to teach university art students how to connect their spiritual lives to their creative lives and also how to engage and serve the community around them.

How much do you hate being asked what your next big project is?
Generally I like talking about it! It's usually what I'm most excited and passionate about and it's great to share that with others and maybe even get feedback.

What's something you want Phoenix to know about you? (And, if you're
game, what's something you really don't want Phoenix to know about you?)

If you're really curious I have about one million websites so anything you want to know about me can probably be found on the internet.
