The Artisan Group is proud to announce today’s Artist Spotlight Feature is Jessica Gattone of Sparetire Design!
We caught up with Jessica and asked her a few questions about her graphic design and paper goods line, and her experiences so far working with TAG. Here’s what she said:
Sparetire Design carries creative and customized stationery solutions for weddings, special events and personal use. My stationery designs combine a simple and organic sensibility with sharp design and typography skills. I started Sparetire Design as a freelance design business and it has morphed into a stationery and design business. I love helping people make their visions a reality for important events in their lives. Whether I am working with a newly developed business to create their company brand or working with a couple to create an intimate part of their wedding from invitations to day of stationery, combining my passion and love for design into a useful and tangible element is incredibly gratifying.
What is your favorite product from your shoppe and why?
The product I relate most to in my shop would have to be my music inspired note cards. I designed these cards for The Official CMA Gift Lounge, an opportunity I was able to be a part of because of TAG. I was able to capture the emotion and inspiration music evokes in me and create a design for note cards that depicts birds taking flight from a music staff. The second design in the series is a collection of musical terms arranged in a fun typographical arrangement.
You can often find me in the yard playing with my children, tending my garden and listening to great music. We recently adopted a dog, so we love to take hikes and go exploring as a family too. Music and nature provide a wealth of inspiration to me as an artist so I try to incorporate those elements into my daily routine as much as possible.
What do you like best about The Artisan Group?
The Artisan Group provides a sharing atmosphere with other creative people accomplished in different mediums in an encouraging and supportive format. I have learned an inexhaustible amount about business, human nature and the art of creativity from other members. My studio is in house, TAG provides the interaction with other creatives I crave.
Jessica recently participated as a display participant in the official talent gift lounge on October 29 – November 1, 2012 at The Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, in honor of the Nominees and Presenters of The 46th Annual Country Music Awards (CMAs).
