- Senior Graphic Designer
Tarika Hammernik is a Senior Graphic Designer at Sonic Promos. She joined the team in 2013. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. Her love of art started since before she can remember and intensified when a visiting artist came to her school in first grade. Tarika dreamed then of becoming an illustrator. Through her illustration pursuits, she discovered her design aptitude. She has passionately practiced her art through design since.
Outside of work, Tarika loves to travel, see live music, and binge watch TV shows. And of course she still enjoys drawing, painting, and photography.
- What's your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas. The day itself is great, but what I truly love is all the preparation and build-up. I love the spirit, family time, decorations, lights, music, putting up ornaments, baking and wrapping presents (my artistic perfectionism really comes out for the last two!).
- What did you want to be then you grew up?
An Illustrator or Art Teacher.
- If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Teleportation. There are so many places I want to see—just don’t have the time or resources to get there!
- Where did you go the last time you were in a plane?
Atlanta for a music festival (Shaky Knees).
- Top 5 favorite songs?
That's a tough one. I'm a music junkie. Off the top of my head- 1) Strange by Built to Spill, 2) Every You Every Me by Placebo, 3) Shadow Stabbing by Cake, 4) In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry, and 5) Dare by Gorillaz.
