Tawni Martin

UI/UX Designer

Tawni Martin Tawni Martin is The SSL Store's UI/UX Designer. She works with all departments to translate design requirements, strategic marketing and business objectives into compelling user experiences, interaction and design. She says, "Great UI/UX is about problem-solving - adapting to technical abilities and limitations, and meeting marketing goals and business objectives while creating effective, efficient and engaging solutions for the user." Tawni has been designing for over a decade, earning Gold, Silver and Bronze Adrian awards, a Silver Addy and a Platinum Marcom award along the way. She's worked on high profile websites for the likes of Yosemite National Park, Disney, Marriott, the island of Cozumel, and – one of our favorite contributions from Ms. Martin – she designed the logo and three of the beer cans for one of our favorite local breweries, Big Storm. Always seeking to improve her front-end skill set, she threw herself into a 3-month boot camp, coding 80 hours per week to create a JavaScript application using Backbone, React and Firebase.

When she's not creating works of art at the office, you can find Tawni creating them in and around downtown St. Pete. Tawni loves art in all mediums, she's always looking to learn more by reading or taking a class. She takes that inspiration from her father, one of the original Disney Imagineers that designed the attractions at the world-famous amusement park. Suffice it to say, good design runs in Tawni's DNA.
