Tingalls Graphic Design Staff
Tara Ingalls, Owner / Creative Director
A Virginia native, but true Wisconsin Badger, Tara is actually a self-taught graphic designer. She began offering freelance graphic design services in 1999 and quickly developed a niche in Madison offering high end, eye-catching designs with unheard of turnaround. Over a decade later, the company continues to grow specializing in marketing solutions for companies and nonprofits of all sizes and industries. Tara enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 daughters, going to the movies and driving open-wheeled Indy racecars. While her favorite cup of coffee is from Panera, no one dares try to bring her a cup. Her concoction of half-n-half plus 3 different flavors of coffee is hard to master.
Sierra Lewis, Account Manager
A West Coast native, Sierra graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Consumer Science. She takes great pride in the motto "clients always come first" which makes her an excellent fit at Tingalls. When Sierra is not working she loves to travel, spend time with her dog Teddie, fiancé Glenroy and grilling out with friends. She is also a coach for the YMCA swim team, loves training for full marathons and is the main source of a lot of laughter in the Tingalls office. The way to Sierra's heart is through candy and you'll be her best friend if you get your hands on Nerd Jelly Beans or Watermelon Sour Patch Wedges.
Nicole Drives, Account Manager
A Madison native, Nicole graduated from UW-Madison with a Bachelor's Degree in Dietetics. She first connected with the Tingalls team when she launched an artisan food business and hired Tingalls as her graphic design firm. As a former client, Nicole understands first-hand what's necessary to market a successful business. Food is still a passion for Nicole, as she enjoys Farmer's Market trips and cooking at home with her fiancé, Nick. You can also find her running, hiking, or shopping the awesome Madison area local businesses.
JoAnna Niven, Project Manager / Photographer
From a farm kid living in the northwoods of Wisconsin to teaching in the Chicago public school system, JoAnna enjoys new experiences and challenges. JoAnna brings many talents to the Tingalls office including photography and her love of organization (we are all thankful for that!). JoAnna is a loving mother to daughter Arianna, enjoys Italian food, romantic comedies and gives the best hugs around.

Whitney Hein, Senior Graphic Designer
Whitney graduated from UW-Stout with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Digital Photography. Her skills include extensive experience with print and identity design as well as photography. When Whitney's not designing at Tingalls she can be found whipping up a loaf of her delicious banana bread, taking a bike ride to the Farmer's Market, or relaxing at the Union with friends. While she loves Madison and everything it has to offer, she also enjoys traveling and most recently ventured to Costa Rica where she went zip-lining for the first time. Sometimes appearing as the silent-type here at Tingalls, don't discount her witty one-liners and hilarious phone accents.
Kallie Johnson, Graphic Designer
Kallie graduated from UW-Stevens Point with a Bachelor's Degree in English and Public Relations. After graduation, she went to London for an internship at a Fashion PR Firm where she caught the traveling bug. Upon returning, she moved to Madison to earn a degree from Madison College in graphic design and illustration. In her free time she enjoys traveling, running, boating, antique shopping, and Brewers baseball. She also loves the color purple, red velvet cake, and Spotted Cow.
Alyssa Daubs, Junior Graphic Designer
Alyssa holds a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design with a double minor in Media Arts and French from UW-Whitewater. She is a creative thinker and has a passion for using color and shapes to tell stories. She fuels this passion through graphic design and, in particular, branding. When Alyssa isn't designing, she loves anything outdoors whether it's a walk through the arboretum, an afternoon of fishing, or a hike at Governor Dodge. She also loves to sit back with some cheese curds and a good beer.
