Q&A with Fall Design Intern, Tara Zinser
Tell us the basics! Who you are, where you're from, and what you're up to now.
I’m Tara! I’m from Bucyrus, a small town north of Columbus. I’m currently a junior at Capital University studying emerging media with a focus in digital design.
What first piqued your interest about the wedding stationery industry?
For a long time I thought I wanted to be a wedding planner. After I started actually shadowing and assisting wedding planners and seeing the late hours they work on weekends and late nights, I realized it may not be the right path for me. I still love to work with them, I just don't think I ever want to be them. Through another internship, I used Canva to design a social media post, then a flyer, then an invitation, and I pretty much immediately fell in love with design. After some brainstorming, and a few Adobe classes, I realized that wedding stationery is the perfect combination of my two huge passions!
What is your favorite wedding trend happening now?
I'm obsessed with mixed and matched bridesmaid dresses of all styles and colors! (See photo by Sarah Joy Photography) But really anything with a lot of unique color, especially reds, oranges, and yellows. I love to see colorful invitations, grooms suits, and cakes.
What are 3 things you love doing or being a part of?
Yoga, cooking, and traveling!
What is your favorite place to get a great bite to eat in Columbus? Your hometown?
For sure Condado, you can catch me there pretty much weekly (sweet lucy all the way!) At home we don’t have a ton of options, but Bakers Pizza is definitely one of my favorites!
Favorite thing about fall?
I love summer and the fun and freedom it brings, but I reallllyyyy love fall. I love going back to school and having a consistent schedule, watching the leaves change, sitting around a bonfire on cooler nights, but most of all, I really love iced pumpkin spice chai lattes from Starbucks. They’re my biggest weakness.
Favorite color palette right now?
Hands down, burnt orange with dark teal, yellow, sage, peach, and cream.
