It Takes a Village
At the end of the day, we’re not just a group of creatives — we’re a family. We work together, we play together, and we succeed together.
Have you ever met that one person who is just beaming with creative talent? That’s Dustin. His biggest inspiration and greatest teacher? His Nanny. Whether it’s interior design, graphic design, painting or photography, Dustin loves the entire creative process.
After spending a few minutes with him, you would be shocked to know that he started his career surrounded by horses and team ropers, working as the lead photographer and a designer for a western wear company in North Texas.
Dustin has plenty of work to be proud of in his career. A few of his biggest accomplishments include logo refresh campaigns for a couple of high profile clients, including; Harding University, TeamRoper.com, and even our home base 400 Record.
Need some conversation starters? Dustin recently held his first art show here in Dallas. His Catahoula mix, Olivia (probably the cutest thing you’ve ever seen), doubles as his alarm clock. He loves music and enjoys a good red blend or a vodka press for those evenings on the patio.
“I like Eighty Three because of the people I get to call my coworkers. Everyone brings something creatively different to the team, and they’re just fun people I enjoy working with and grabbing drinks with after work. The scope of work we get to do here is exciting. There is honestly never a dull moment,” Dustin says of working at Eighty Three Creative, Inc.
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Cory began honing his app development skills in 2008 and since then has proudly been involved in publishing hundreds of apps in both the iTunes and Google Play stores. Applications that he has personally built have been downloaded more than one million times and have even been featured on their respective stores.
No need to shout if you need him to work on a project, just shoot him an email. His inbox is his home base for all project to-do’s and since he’s always wearing his headphones, there’s a good chance he wouldn’t hear you anyway.
Need some conversation starters? He has two dogs, a cat, and a saltwater fish tank. Cory is originally from Phoenix, Arizona (which is probably why he loves winter) and can’t be called a morning person.
“We have a great mix of corporate importance, with startup scrappy mentality. It allows us the resources to do a great deal more, but without the soul-crushing that many corporate jobs end up providing. Never have I worked at a company where the term ‘work family’ meant so much,” he says of working at Eighty Three.
Digital Marketing Manager
She graduated with a journalism degree from Baylor University and after a brief stint as a reporter decided to move to the marketing-communications side of things where she cut her teeth in the demanding franchising world.
Her most proud accomplishments include an Addy won for work on her first publication, managing the planning, content collection, and copyediting for 28 internal publications printing in one year, planning the redesign of the company’s intranet, and co-building what came to be the sought after local intern program for journalism/PR majors from Baylor.
Breezing past her desk, you’ll always catch a glimpse of her water bottle, red pen, and an obscene collection of sticky notes, where she houses her to-do list.
Need some conversation starters? Her dogs, horses, donkey, and future chickens. Is it a surprise that she volunteers much of her time with animal rescue and animal welfare organizations?
“Working on a small team means you get to wear a lot of hats. I love not being confined to one creative space or project. It means I constantly get to touch and learn new things, which keeps me energized!” she says of working at Eighty Three.
Promotions Director and Account Manager
Our resident animal lover, Jen, always wanted to be a Veterinarian when she grew up. She was caught by her mom time after time taking in stray animals to feed and care for them. That piece of her heart is what we think makes her so great for the position that she has now. A few minutes with her, and you’ll feel as if you’ve been friends forever.
Even as a youngster, Jen was deeply interested in anything fashion related, so it’s not surprising she started her career at Fossil, where she helped them merchandise and open their Southlake, Texas store. She is a very dedicated and hard worker, and in her previous position saw a sales boost of almost $1 million in one year from a single account. She’ll tell you that one of her proudest moments was when she was personally referred by the Dean of her college to the President of Dallas Cowboys Merchandising, where she spent the next 5 years of her career.
You’ll never catch her without planner, and she’s probably already got you penciled in. Jen puts real effort into building solid relationships and holds herself firmly to never burn the proverbial bridges.
Need some conversation starters? Jen has two cats and a Mini Australian Shepherd. She loves a nice glass of red blend wine or a refreshing vodka press, kayaking, and her three favorite sports; football, baseball and hockey.
“We have one of the most talented teams of people that I’ve ever had the chance to work with. I learn so much from each person every day and I love the atmosphere. We are more like a family than just co-workers. We joke around, play games, have fun, and in doing so it allows us to be more creative,” Jen said of working at Eighty Three.
During his college career, Jesse worked as a bartender. He used the extra cash from tips to purchase engineering and software books, thus laying his path and further fueling his interest in understanding how things work. Consequently, he is also our resident mixologist- cheers!
A bit of an entrepreneur, Jesse has a couple startups under his belt, including Connect2Car, Inc. and Gtrol. He keeps his problem solving skills sharp by continuously learning new things and cherishes the best advice his first mentor gave him: Stay hungry, Stay foolish! He also always stays caffeinated – you’ll never find his desk void of coffee.
Jesse keeps a whiteboard at the foot of his bed for his to-do list, making it the first thing he sees when he wakes up, and the last thing he sees before closing his eyes each night. He takes each day as an opportunity to learn something new.
Need some conversation starters? Jesse is from London and loves to travel. He will soon be adding a German Shephard into his family, he spends a lot of time at the gym, and listens to pretty much any music genre (with the exception of country).
“There isn’t a typical day at Eighty Three, because there’s always something new on your plate. The open-space office plan allows for ease of interaction and collaboration with other employees versus the cubicles I’ve been in at other companies. And the people here are really energetic,” Jesse said of working at Eighty Three.
His passion for how things work began at very young age when he began tinkering with toys, taking apart and rebuilding them – this curiosity is what fuels his work here. David has built hundreds of website platforms including e-commerce, nonprofit, personal, and corporate in many sectors.
He enjoys establishing new workflow environments that improve the development process. If you saunter by his desk, you’ll see a Monster energy drink at all times and his iPhone, the keeper of his to-do list.
Need some conversation starters? His dogs, a shihtzu and a frenchie, double as his alarm clock. They must be prompt because he’s never late! He’s a golfer, a cook, and always enjoys a good science documentary. His parents last names are combined to form his own.
“This is a company that thrives on challenging their employees to produce the best quality of work possible. We work hard and play harder. Before this, I worked remotely, so the collaborative environment here is a really positive change,” David says of working at Eighty Three.
Liz’s foray into the professional world began as a copier sales representative for Xerox (humorous now for the personality misfit). Regardless, winning several awards in top sales, she excelled.
Her crowning moments, however, were the 17 years she stayed home to raise her children and she’ll gladly tell you now they’re self-supporting adults and out of the house. We’d say she was very successful at that, too!
Need some conversation starters? Her two kids. She loves to travel and has been fortunate enough to see many different places all around the world. Liz plays tennis, enjoys reading, and in addition to dogs and cats, she has over the years shared her home with a parakeet, hermit crab, pet rats, and one very mean gerbil.
“The collaboration here is awesome. Everyone in the office pitches in to help on various projects and are very supportive of new ideas,” Liz says of working at Eighty Three.
Ray had the pleasure of photographing President Bush while he inaugurated the Bush Presidential Library. He’s also had the chance to photograph a brain surgery, and capture the inside of the Texas Instruments clean room facility.
We consider ourselves lucky to have such an experienced photographer here at Eighty Three. Ray’s primary task while at work, is product photography. He enjoys the challenge of staging, lighting, and reflections. Like most artists, he enjoys seeing his work published and knowing it’s on a website thousands will visit.
Need some conversation starters? Ray is from New Jersey; the South Jersey Shore will always hold a special place in his heart. He loves Spring in Dallas, and all the wild colors that begin to bloom. He’s a reader, movie buff, and works out a lot.
“This is a great place to work because it encourages developing creativity. The culture is one of a family, where everyone is ready and willing to help others out, whether it’s learning a skill or assisting in project completion. Some of the most creative minds I have ever had the pleasure to work with are all under the same roof,” Ray says of working at Eighty Three.
Creativity is what brought us together, culture is what keeps up together.
At Eighty Three Creative we believe that a happy team is the easiest way to ensure happy clients. From Nerf wars to ping pong tournaments and happy hours, we’re always finding new ways to have fun and grow creatively.
