Hi! I'm Tina Frostholm, owner, operator, and chief creative of First Frost. I am a freelance designer and illustrator as well as painting and mixed media artist. I started First Frost in 2009 after the birth of my beautiful twin boys. They have been the inspiration for my work from the very beginning.
Before starting my company, I had over 13 years of experience in graphic design and print production. First Frost began with a love of stationery, and that has grown into a full range of creative endeavors that wrap up so many of my design passions.
We are located Mobile, Alabama, also known as the birthplace of Mardi Gras, the Azalea City and the Port City. Our neck of the woods provides all sorts of creative inspiration, especially being located right on one of the best sunset spots ever, Mobile Bay. From locally-grown watermelons to fresh catches of Gulf shrimp, our hometown never fails to feed our bellies and design spirits.
A few more tidbits about us:
- My husband, Jason, is also a designer and part of the First Frost team, too. His passion for creating awesome design is matched only by his passion to make our two monkeys giggle.
- Jason and I are team members of the best design conference in the world, Creative South (creativesouth.com). CS takes place every spring in beautiful Columbus, Georgia, and it has provided us with an ever-growing family of super and awesomely-talented family members with each passing year We love these CS people. Seriously. Love. Lots of it.
- We are tikiphiles. We are fans of dimly-lit locations decorated with hanging lamps, glass baubles and some Martin Denny playing in the background. Ask us about some of our favorite tiki bars. tiki drinks and fellow tiki fans. We love to ruminate about good rums, good Polynesian dinner show and good people.
