Dipping my toes in agency life…

Well, I’m over the halfway point in my internship with TracyLocke. In a pitter-patter of nervous heartbeats, a rustle of sketchbook papers,  and the blink of an eye, it’s already flown by so quickly. And in just two months, I’ve had the opportunity to learn so much from my colleagues, peers, and myself. I’ll be unpackaging the experience here on…

ACTS Retreat Poster Design

It’s not every day you get to work for a client as near and dear as your own dad! I loved helping him put together a poster design for the ACTS retreat he’s leading in the fall. With this scripture quote as the theme, the retreat is focusing on divine mercy in preparation for the Jubilee Year of Mercy declared…

You’re Killin It!

Sneak peek to a new little series I’ve had in the works for awhile now. I lettered a couple motivational phrases back during the spring semester, but never got around to digitizing them. However, they’re finally coming to life! I have to give another shout out to Molly, because she’s the one who constantly motivated our Pizza Hut team with…

Little Sarina is turning one soon, and her sweet mama (in addition to being an incredibly sharp ad woman) is planning a party to remember. It was a pleasure to come up with a few…

Like a Wildflower

Hello all! I know I’ve been quite remiss in my posting habits lately, but life at TL has kept my plate pretty full. More coming very soon on the internship experience, but for now I wanted to take a moment to share something else: a special commission.

Intern, Meet TracyLocke

Well, it’s official… I’m a big kid now, with a real big kid job, in a real downtown office, with a real (intern-sized) paycheck. You know it’s the real deal when your family’s lounging on vacation in Seaside while you’re corporate hustlin’ at a nine-to-five pace… and when your name is officially printed on the TracyLocke intern list! Does that…

Good Morning, World

Savoring the quiet moments God hands to me in the morning before the daily chaos sets in. I’ve had an unbelievable first few days working for TracyLocke, but also wow. What a whirlwind. As most of you know, my family let my sweet Grandma go home to the Lord this week… and within 24 hours I dove right into a…

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners…

To all my fellow beginner creatives, soak up these wise words from Ira Glass! Especially during creative finals week, they’re golden. “It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile.
