Tannan Whidden Winter is a Designer based in Providence, RI.
At first glance there is no lineal path to the designer I am today—this is a good thing. This diversity has allowed me to draw from one experience to build upon the next. Each has come with it’s own language and rituals, each of which I have learned and navigated successfully. I have found the common ground between event design and graphic design, and often apply what I have learned as a UX designer to making furniture. I love design, and I love designing for people.
