We design brands for local/family-owned food & hospitality businesses who want to create a unique customer experience.

It is so great to have you here! We are Taylyn + Ross Tatka, a husband and wife team, founders of Tatka Creating Co., avid dog cuddles and professional donut eaters. Our belief is that food and hospitality businesses have the opportunity to offer an experience beyond their products and services. Our name comes from this belief.

Creating: to cause to happen; bring about; arrange, as by intention or design.
Company: the condition of being with others, especially in a way that provides friendship and enjoyment.

What we do and who we are go hand in hand. As a designer and business strategist, we build brands; as people, we build relationships and eat lots of good food while doing so. 

"Local/family-owned” is so special and those stories need to be told! We care about your businesses (and what they look like, of course) but we care most about you and cultivating a lasting partnership.  These ventures are your livelihoods and we want to do everything in our power to help them stand apart and succeed! It takes a village (or a family) to build a brand and we want to be on your team.
