Tara Hogan received her design and illustration degree at Syracuse University’s School of the Visual and Performing Arts. She went on to prop and style for Exposures Catalog in South Norwalk, CT traveling on location with vintage chic props for interior photo shoots. Building upon the passion for design, Tara worked as a web and print designer for many years in house until arriving one fine day in her own office running a one woman show. The show turned into a fine client list and licensing contracts with babysoy,, Great Arrow Graphics, Graphique de France, Pinball Publishing, Bella Figura, and babybe organics.

Tara Hogan’s vision stems from understanding everything is relative. Everything is connected. Her design business, INK+WIT, grew out of a desire and passion to create conceptual, organic, elegant and simple designs with an illustrative impression.
