My name is Tirza Mary, but you can call me Tearz. I’m a Rotterdam based Graphic Designer, currently studying at the Willem De Kooning Academy and working as a freelancer.
My mission is to show the potential of this generation by getting inspiration out of hiphop culture, fashion and street art. I’m fascinated by the fact that there is always a way to make something new and creative out of existing elements. I try to show this in my concepts through different media like print, album covers, branding and clothing. My visual language is outspoken and edgy and I like to make use of bright colors and bold typography, often combined with illustration.
I want my work to spark something in people, whatever emotion that may be. You can’t make everyone appreciate your work, but you can always make them feel something.
