Let me introduce myself: My name is Corinne Lumens and I am a graphic designer for advertising and marketing, painter, artist and collector of anything vintage. By day, I’m the Marketing and Communications Specialist for the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and by night (and weekend), I’m the co-owner, designer, buyer and marketer of Clink Haus.
A little history: As a child, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to do when I “grew up,” I would always answer that I wanted to paint the streets of Paris. Taking every art class available throughout school (and even some that weren’t offered), I learned everything from graphic design to painting, stained glass to drawing, and anything else I could get my hands on. Now I focus my arts primarily in the direction of advertising and marketing, which connects my love of art with my being raised in the world of business and retail.
My creative talents also encompass singing and acting (I have had leading roles in several musicals in local community theatre), and I have received ribbons and awards for paintings, collage and quilt making. I am also very passionate about travel, historic preservation, and collecting just about anything vintage. I find it tantalizing to watch the progression of design and styles over time and I’m starting to think that I follow more design blogs on social media than I do friends!
