Tatiana ‘Taty’ Hindes.
Graphic & Web Designer, Maria Teresa Rivera de Hindes, known as Tatiana or Taty for short has worked as a Graphic Designer and Art Director in the United States, Latin America and since 2003 in Australia. Taty has designed for Hallmark, Disney, the Discovery Channel, Subway, Unilever, Hilasal and Nestle among others; as well as working with creative professionals from all over the world.
Taty started her design journey working for a large newspaper corporation in her native country El Salvador back in 1986, while studying art and design at university.
Having found her passion very early in life, in 2016 she’s celebrating 30 years of being a designer.
Alongside her career as an Art Director and Graphic Designer, for over 16 years Taty taught and lectured graphic design, typography and computer graphics at universities in America and Australia. What’s more, if your first language is Spanish, you will feel right at home in your dealings with her.
Back in 1990, Taty fell in love with the Mac computer and the desktop publishing world while living and studying in Boston. Since then, Taty’s been passionate about design software and typography and her speaking engagements have included Apple events in America.
Taty is a proud Fulbright Scholar and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Design from the Massachusetts College of Arts and Design in Boston, USA and a Bachelor of Graphic Design from the University Dr. Jose Matias Delgado in El Salvador.
The Fulbright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship.” – Senator J. William Fulbright
In 2016 Taty obtained a Certificate IV in business in Social Media Mastery, enabling her to help clients integrate social media strategies with the marketing and branding of their businesses
When she’s not designing creative projects for Soul Space clients, you can find Taty keeping up to date with social media and learning more about the ever changing world of online marketing. And in her spare time you can find her under the sun in the beaches of Noosa, reading ebooks (using her tablet, iPhone or Kindle device), watching movies on Netflix, or sharing life on social media.

Content Writer, Editor
A lover of language and words, Dave has been known to obsess (in a good way) over finding exactly the right turn of phrase.
Born in the middle of England (Tolkien country), Dave narrowly escaped becoming a lawyer, and instead spent almost two decades in a variety of government roles (including an 11-year stint in London and a short but fascinating spell helping Latvia and Estonia with their EU membership) all of which honed his communication skills to a fine edge.
Breaking free of ‘civil servitude’, Dave has spent the last several years crafting sharp website content to appeal to both search engine algorithms and real human beings, writing articles for business magazines, and editing, ghostwriting and proofreading manuscripts for authors.
Thanks to the wonders of email and internet, Dave is able to live in Barcelona while working with talented people from all over the globe, including Australia, Chile, China, the Czech Republic, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, the UK, and the US.
When not sculpting words to clients’ requirements, Dave tinkers with story ideas (he’s had one published and hopes it’s not the last!) reviews CDs for Jazz Journal magazine, and walks his crazy Dalmatian Loti four times a day.
Cameraman & Video Producer
Born in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, Chris was seduced at an early age by the creative possibilities of photography. His fascination with images (and the technology used to produce them) continued through school and university and while studying Television and Sound Production at NSW’s Charles Sturt, Chris was practising his skills as photographer for the university magazine.
As a news and commercial cameraman, Chris went on to work for various TV networks and indie production companies in NSW, QLD, and NT. Now living near Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, Chris runs his own video and photography business.
As an independent operator, Chris’s work has been screened nationally and abroad, winning awards from Museums Australia and the Woodford Folk Festival. His work has included digital content for ABC, Estonia TV and RAI Italy and has been featured at UNESCO Paris, the Powerhouse Museum Sydney and the Woodford Festival Queensland.
Chris has also branched out into authoring (co-writing a chapter in ‘Producing Videos’ published by Allen & Unwin) and facilitating recording workshops for businesses, schools, indigenous groups and museums across the country.
With 18 years in the business, Chris is a talented cameraman, editor and director with experience in news, documentaries, commercials, stock footage, promotions, and corporate and even music videos. After nearly two decades, he still loves the creativity and technology involved in video and photography.
On the rare occasions that Chris takes time away from the camera, he’s with his family, playing and building with his kids, and taking trips to the beautiful beaches and parks of the Sunshine Coast.
