My Story

Get To Know Me

Hi there! My name is Maria-Tatiana Pauna and I’m a Romanian-born graphic designer based in Chilliwack, BC, Canada.

Graphic design has not always been my passion. I had spent many years of my life studying foreign languages, specializing in Latin and hoping for a career that would allow me to apply everything I had learned during my college time. Until I discovered Photoshop and Corel Draw which led me to my new passion: GRAPHIC DESIGN. How did that happen? Well, at some point in my career as a marketing assistant I had the chance to see what and how a graphic designer works and then I realized: “That’s my dream job! This is what I want to do!” And here I am!

I didn’t even know I could draw until a year ago, and I absolutely had no idea what graphic design was by the age of 29. Now, all I see are shapes, colours, typography and…DESIGN! Everything is about design. Good design!

Oh…by the way…yellow is one of my favourite colours.

Philosophy

My Mission

I like everything that is beautiful and functional. Whether is a video, a painting, a photography or a poster, a good design always impresses me.

Maybe you will ask yourselves: “What a good design looks like?’ In my opinion, a good design has to be perfect. Colours, shapes, typography, alignment, concept, message, everything that together conveys a powerful feeling of perfection.

Ok, you got me! I’m a perfectionist! This represents a plus for you because I will put all my efforts towards your success. My only goal is to create unique custom designs that will make your business stand out.
