The graphic artwork and logos on the Concord Food Network website were designed by Concord-based Tina Labadini Designs.
Tina Labadini Designs began in 2007 as a stationery business featuring Tina's beautiful hand painted acrylic paintings done in a watercolor style. TLD has grown to include a brand and logo design firm and new product incubator.
Tina has a real flare when it comes to painting perfect artwork and illustrations for use in gorgeous paper products for all occasions and on a growing line of home goods and products including tea towels, children’s clothing and the new Doggy Ditty Bag. The individually hand painted designs are inspired by simple pieces of the great things in life. Tina's creative mind and wonderful spirit combined with her eye for detail has defined her as a very well-loved artist and business woman.
When Katy Bunnage joined the Tina Labadini Designs team, her impressive experience in graphic design and brand development was accompanied by her free thinking creativity and vibrancy- a perfect match for the ethos of Tina Labadini Designs.
Tina and Katy enjoy creating unique logos for a variety of clients. Their skills compliment each other beautifully. Tina’s bespoke hand painted artwork and Katy’s ideas and layouts are a perfect combination. Together they influence project solutions that have impressed clients beyond their expectations. Tina and Katy thoroughly enjoy the ongoing inspiration that clients, friends and relations provide.
In addition to logos, Tina Labadini Designs studio creates several lines of products including stationery, holiday cards, housewares, gifts and a brand new product called the Doggy Ditty Bag! All items from the studio feature custom art which strike a beautiful balance between elegant and hand made.

Light has consistent presence and has always been an inspiration in my work. It is present in my impressionistic landscapes but also in the more precisely rendered fruits and vegetables. This series reflects my interest in form and the use of light to establish depth and volume.
As a representational painter I am attuned visually to everything around me and what attracts me often becomes the subject matter for my painting. Carefully stacked vegetables and fruits so beautifully arranged and juxtaposed at the grocery store and farm stand caught my eye. I was struck by the beauty of the warm and cool groupings and their pairings on the grocery store shelves. I love to garden and although I grow mostly flowers, herbs and greens, the fruit and vegetable’s vivid color and beautiful forms bring back the smells and sounds of the earth and garden.
Art is an important part of my life. I always loved to draw and have painted in oils and watercolors for over 30 years. I earned a BA in art at Colby College in Maine and spent a year at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I am a licensed visual art teacher through the PBTL program at Framingham State University. I have exhibited extensively in the Boston area and my paintings are held in private and corporate collections. I also accept commissions.
I have a studio at the Holliston Mill in Holliston, Massachusetts and also teach art privately. You can find my Fruit & Vegetable Series at Artisans Way, 18 Walden Street, Concord, MA.
