ABOUT

Tirza CHASE

 

Tirza also spearheaded Bermuda Heart Foundation redesign sponsored by Elon University. As lead graphic designer, she was able to re-design an old logo and brand their company with new a new style guide, animations, and marketing materials.

 

As a lover of fashion, Tirza has worked with The POLAR Movement, LLC. for 4 years and recently created the best selling line of the company, Visions by Ziggy. This line was dedicated to Black History Month, and was designed to empower all “visionaries” to be the best versions of themselves nodding to our previous black role models.  She designed from scratch the silhouettes of each piece and created all of the graphics.
