I'm Peter Karpick, the creative behind Tender Situations.
As a seasoned Creative Director, my expertise spans a spectrum of design fields, including product design, UI/UX, animation, graphic design, branding, and illustration.

My professional journey has led me to collaborate with clients of various sizes, from large corporations to emerging startups. My design ethos is versatile, ranging from the subtle nuances of minimalist aesthetics to the adventurous and bold. Over the course of my career, I've contributed my skills both within creative agencies and as an in-house team member for companies entrenched in the entertainment space.

Beyond the professional sphere, I am happily married and am the father to two wonderful boys who constantly inspire me. Outside of work you'll often find me indulging in my passion for skateboarding, casting a line, or immersed in the restoration of vintage Volkswagens.

I am on the lookout for exciting opportunities, be it freelance projects that allow me to bring creative visions to life or full-time positions that provide a platform for continuous growth and collaboration. Join me on this journey, and let's create something extraordinary together.

Testimonials
"Peter consistently urged our team to push the creative envelope and to think unconventionally in terms of design and animation. He fostered an environment in which my colleagues and I were free to sketch and spitball our weirdest ideas in order to deliver the best possible creative—and it worked!"
