Tina Roth Eisenberg

Tina Roth Eisenberg has many preoccupations and passions. She started a temporary tattoo company called Tattly, a global community meet-up group called Creative Mornings, and a digital task organizer called TeuxDeux. After studying design in Switzerland and Germany, she moved to Brooklyn in 1999, worked as a designer, and eventually started the design blog Swissmiss, which became one of the world’s most-visited design websites.

In this episode of First Things First, we talk about magic and the importance of listening to everything the universe has to tell you.


This episode is hosted by Paddy Harrington and produced and edited by Max Cotter. Frontier’s sponsor music is an edited version of “sketch (rum-portrait)” by Jahzzar from the album “Sketches.” This episode also features edited versions of “Lorca” by Thorn1, “Bumble” and “Seashore” by Podington Bear, and “Broke for Free” by Murmur.
