Tanner Van Dera
My name is Tanner Van Dera (van-der-ay) and I’m a creative and design entrepreneur based out of Milwaukee-Wisconsin. I’m currently a senior in UWM’s Design & Visual Communication program, with intent to graduate in May.
My work focuses primarily within the realms of user-interface and user-experience design, though I also have experience in branding, creative direction, social media and publication. Currently in design, I strive to create beautiful digital experiences which elevate brands, engage audiences and simplify the web.
I’m the cofounder and creative director of a nutrition startup called FIG, founder of a workspace eCommerce brand called Dreamdesks and have been doing design work for 7 of my 21 years of age. My biggest, hairiest goal is to redefine what it means to be a creative entrepreneur in the 21st century and inspire others in the creative community to look beyond themselves, build something larger-than-life, and design a world that is more intuitive, more inter-connected, and more human.
