Tali Gibson Designs LLC was founded in 2019 and is a small company based out of the Sierra-Nevada Foothills.

The company was created by Janessa Broadbridge and Bryan Tibbetts, a graphic designer and an engineer, with the goal of combining their skills so that their projects excel in both form and function.

About the Founders

Janessa Broadbridge, Graphic Designer

Janessa is our Graphic Designer, skilled in a wide area of design work. She taught herself how to use Adobe Photoshop prior to beginning George Brown College’s Graphic Design program in 2005. There she was introduced to other programs in the Adobe Creative Suite… and how to use them the right way.

She has continued to learn and improve her skills by taking classes in Figure Drawing, Performing Arts, and Creative Writing at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada. As of 2019, she takes online courses using Udemy to hone her skills in Adobe products such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to remain up-to-date in the current capabilities of these programs.

Her abilities were further refined while working for Investor Economics, a company which provides research, data, and business intelligence to the global asset management community. There, she was a part of the Production Team and directly involved in the coordination and production of numerous reports with monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual deadlines. This opportunity provided daily challenges, with the expectation of excellence in all areas. Thus, Janessa has learned how to thrive under pressure and strives to continuously improve her skills, efficiency, and quality of work.

Bryan Tibbetts, Mechanical Engineer

Bryan is our lead Mechanical Engineer. He earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from California State University, Sacramento in 2010, as well as a Certificate in Scientific Computing and Simulation. He has since worked in the areas of Consumer Product Design, Design for Plastic Injection Molding, Data Science, and Research and Development.

Working for a startup company, he has had first-hand experience in guiding products through the phases of concept, development, prototyping, manufacturing, and production. As it is within the startup culture, Bryan has learned to problem solve, be flexible, and adapt to changes quickly to meet new challenges.
