: Pronounced “eye-tack”, EITAK is “Katie” spelled backwards.
I am it, and it is me. Whether it’s designing a wedding invitation ensemble
or painting a mural, every project is taken from concept to completion with
artistic vision, attention to detail and quality assurance by….EITAK (ME)!
I am Katie Jamieson Gaines, the artist, designer, decorative
painter and owner/operator of EITAK Design. I graduated from UCSD with a B.A.
in the Visual Arts and have worked professionally as a graphic designer in the
advertising/marketing, comic book and investment/finance industries. A self-taught graphic designer and decorative painter; hand-making greeting cards and
painting murals started out as hobbies while working on projects for family and
friends. I fell in love with the creative process and making beautiful things
with PAPER and PAINT. Word of mouth referrals spread and I quit my “day job”
to start EITAK and pursue my passion for art and design full time. With over
ten years of professional graphic design and painting experience, plus a
synergetic relationship with a talented network of interior designers, event
coordinators, contractors, printers, web experts and industry professionals,
EITAK’s offering of creative services is continually expanding.
Although I design invitations for clients all over the
country and have traveled for painting projects, my studio is located in North
County San Diego where I keep a happy home with my handsome & talented husband
and our two cute & clever boys.
EITAK’s continued success is 100% referral driven and attributed
to a commitment to quality work, excellent customer relations and reasonable
pricing. EITAK was voted People’s Choice Winner for “Best Invitations Vendor”
by BridalInsider.com; has participated in designer showcases such as the Tour
D’ Elegance; and received mentions in various magazines including San Diego Home
& Garden, Ceremony, Serendipity Magazine and Exquisite Weddings.
