How It All Began

It started with a broken computer.
At 12 my dad gave me a broken computer. It was only able to type text on the small screen but I quickly learned how to type my name. Fast forward a few years, I find myself always asking to play Mavis Beacon on my parents working computer! It was the most amazing form of entertainment I've ever seen in my tween life - graphics, sound and interactive design coming from this small device - it became my new hobby.

Ms. Paint
By 9th grade it was clear that I wanted to be someone who makes "pretty" things on a computer. And I did just that through Microsoft Paint. I emerged in creating designs and would work on pictures, pixel by pixel – literally. My first piece was a Thanksgiving scene with tiny foods on a table, with a fire place in the background.

Creative Hina Design llc
Creative Hina was born in my early years at Wayne State in Detroit, MI in 2001, where I a lot of student groups graphics and work study jobs around campus. From then on, I picked up a few awards, graduated, I went on fulfilling my lifelong dream - becoming a graphic & web designer. My name comes from Hina the Polynesian creative Goddess of the night - and I loved working at night!

Outside of designing I enjoy party decorating, crafts, vegan foods and practicing Capoeira. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Wayne State University, worked 10 years in corporate design and am certified in viral content marketing.
