Almost every new client asks,
“How did you come up with the name Beyond Tomatoes?”
So let’s get that out of the way! Beyond Tomatoes Graphic Design was established as a partnership in August 2006 by two gals, Tannaz Santos and Bianca Ayvazian Miranda, willing to take a risk and embark on a new venture. They needed a creative name that stood out above the rest and a brainstorming session brought them to agree on the zany name Beyond Tomatoes.
By 2009, Beyond Tomatoes Graphic Design was run solely by Bianca. Tannaz has since started her own photography career as Photos by Tannaz.
Since graduating in 2001 from California State University, Northridge, Bianca has been passionately committed to a career in graphic design. Seventeen years of experience has allowed her to experience various niches of the graphic arts from branding, web banners and display ads, magazine layouts and toy packaging, to wedding invitations, creative directing for software UI (user interface), and display, or large scale, graphics.
Bianca loves the four stages of every new project:
- The excitement of a new creative challenge;
- Being in the zone and designing;
- Working with clients to meet their vision;
- And the final product and positive reaction of a completed piece.
Her approach to conceptualizing a new project always starts with brainstorming and sketches, and her aesthetic is described as clean and organic. If you have a vision, she has the experience to deliver the design.
