Tanya Cummings

Tanya Cummings has designed for a diverse group of clients, including The Hertz Corporation, Pentel of America, Amtrak, Canon Computer Systems, and Coca-Cola. Her work has been featured in periodicals, such as Print and How magazines. After working in print graphic design for a number of years, Ms. Cummings sought out the excitement of motion graphics and new media design. After receiving her MFA from California State University, Fullerton, Ms. Cummings has created a number of "micro films" that express her desire to tell stories about people who have found themselves disenfranchised within a multicultural realm. Her influences include Peter Greenaway, Maya Deren, Pablo Ferro, and Julie Taymor—creative people that don’t define themselves within a category and who explore imagination in all forms.
