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, we laugh together, and ultimately, we succeed together.
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? She has two cats (a Calico named Bird and a Siamese named Jackson), and is waiting for the day when she is able to get her dream pup (a Red Merle Aussie). She loves a nice glass of red blend wine, visiting art museums, and all things music.
“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.
Reese joined us through the intern program. He likes to dwell in design and he loves the conceptualization process. He enjoys coming up with strong visual solutions and then plugging them into his designs.
As a student, he had the opportunity to study abroad in Tianjin, China – he was part of a Cross-Cultural Design Exhibition at the Tianjin University of Technology. Reese worked with fellow designers who combined their work with the Tianjin design class.
His daily essential items include his sketchbook – because when inspirations hit, Reese is ready to sketch it out! Music also plays a big role in his creative process – it’s his other way of getting inspired as he designs. His daily goals consist of making the world a more visually beautiful place and his favorite part of the day is when he gets to work on branding projects.
Need some conversation starters? Reese is also a musician who rocks at the drums. His favorite superhero is either Batman or Spiderman – it really depends on the day.
“This company is a diamond in the rough. Eighty Three consists of a team that puts out daily exceptional work by truly genuine creatives. The amount of teamwork and comradery generated really makes this place act as a family. To me, that is the best way to get the job done,” Reese says of working at Eighty Three.
Karen is a Digital Designer for Eighty Three Creative. Her very first job was to sell balloons at the mall… so now we know why she loves party planning!
Karen’s passion includes planning marketing campaigns. From a simple idea to the final execution, she’s passionate about seeing campaigns flourish so they’re able to meet the clients’ needs.
Some of her accomplishments include putting together a successful Eighty Three Creative onboarding kit and City Electric Supply’s CES Cares campaigns. The lesson she learned from her mentor is to, “Learn to do the job before you get the title.”
Swing by her desk and you’ll notice two things: copies of the latest social media calendar for CES and that she’s probably opening another bottle of kombucha. On the weekends, Karen enjoys yoga in the mornings and takes walks around White Rock Lake with her two dogs, Bella and Brie.
“I love collaborating and being surrounded by so many creative people in the office. It’s a unique place where we get to do what we love for a living.” says Karen of working at Eighty Three Creative.
Nick is a Graphic Designer for Eighty Three Creative, Inc., He focuses on creating bold designs and new concept ideas in order to improve brand experience.
Nick enjoys growing his capabilities such as photography and videography. He had the opportunity to photograph for Hillsong United and singer Lauren Daigle. If you happen to walk by his desk, you’ll find him focused on the next marketing campaign, and listening to indie rock tunes. Two things you’ll find on his desk: Typography magazines and a surfer documentary photobook.
When he’s not working on design concepts for ETC, you’ll find him working on other side projects for The Porch at Watermark Church or shooting photography for concerts in town.
“At Eighty Three, we are not ordinary people. We don’t do ordinary things. To me this isn’t just a career. This is my family I get to do life with, and we create the best product and content you’ll see and experience in DFW and beyond. To me, it’s our passion for excellence and the detail is what set us apart,” says Nick of working at Eighty Three Creative.
Yolanda is the Eighty Three Creative, Inc. Receptionist. She’s always had a knack for client support. In fact, her first job was answering the phone for a manufacturing company at the age of 14. It was there that she learned as the first point of contact, she played a major role in ensuring the client had an outstanding experience and first impression.
Yolanda is passionate about helping people and takes pride in being able to improve someone’s day with a positive and sincere tone. In her free time, you can find her binge-watching Netflix with her husband, spending time with her kiddos, or crafting. Yolanda loves crafting so much that she once started her own online business making and selling her crafts.
Why does she get out of bed in the morning? Well, normally because her 3-year-old daughter is screaming “MOMMA” as loud as she can. But aside from that, she has fun at work and loves the group of people she works with.
“I have never been to a workplace that shoots nerf guns at each other! The relationships everyone has with each other is like no other,” says Yolanda, of working at Eighty Three Creative.
Megan’s got a good eye for color correction and likes the challenge of making a photo stand out and be the best. She has an MA and MFA in photography and was selected for an Artist Residency in Michigan right after finishing school.
She’s inspired by the lesson she learned from her mentor: “If you meet your goals, you’re doing your bare minimum. Always put forth your best effort, aim to blow past your goals, not just to meet them.”
She keeps busy handling daily tasks and challenges that come her way. Three things you’ll see at her desk: headphones, coffee, and a water bottle. These essentials keep her focused, caffeinated, and hydrated!
Need some conversation starters? Megan has a cat named Cameron Frye, listens to indie alternative, and enjoys a good cider on the weekends.
“I think the camaraderie more than anything, is what makes Eighty Three different. Everyone is happy to be here, enjoys their work, and is super friendly. It really makes a difference when everyone has a positive attitude and makes it a great place to be. When it’s positive like that, you actually want to go to work!” she said of Eighty Three Creative.
Chief Executive Officer
His passion for creativity was born during his first job, when working at a warehouse collating boxes, sweeping floors, and packing product. He would see various kinds of artwork ranging from packaging design to business cards, and knew that he could offer something much more creative.
Working through the ranks to become the Marketing Manager at one of the largest electrical wholesalers in the U.S., he was able to achieve one of his greatest accomplishments. He and his team successfully carried out a national rebrand for their company, which later on they received an award for. Thomas was also recently given the opportunity to reposition an 18-story high rise in downtown Dallas.
Within minutes of meeting Thomas, you’ll notice a couple of things about him. 1. He is infatuated with all things technology (Apple products to be exact). We’re pretty sure he has almost every product Apple has on the market right now, at his fingertips. 2. He sure does love coffee. If we didn’t know any better, we’d think he had stock in Starbucks. And last, but certainly not least, he is one of the most genuine and laid back people you will ever meet. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, which is why we think he’s been so successful in his career.
Looking for conversation starters? He’s from Wolverhampton, England (we checked, it’s a real town). He’s a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan, and even named his dog (Toews) after their captain. As for his music taste, let’s just say it is eclectic, cold weather (Christmas is his favorite season), and most of all, his gorgeous wife.
“I don’t like Eighty Three, I love it! I love everything Eighty Three stands for and I love the look on a client’s face when we present them with a finished product, knowing we have exceeded expectations. It’s all about culture here; we are a family. And family is the most important thing in the word,” Thomas says of working at Eighty Three..
Juan is the Assistant Creative Director for Eighty Three Creative, Inc. He started his career in a small in-house graphic design team at Tamco, a lighting manufacturer based out of Florida. His passion for the creative process is when he gets the chance to share ideas and concepts with the team.
Juan gets his daily inspiration by seeing all the creativity that floats around the office. One of his accomplishments includes The Wire, a quarterly magazine publication for our client, City Electric Supply. He manages and designs the layout of the publication that has a circulation of 225,000 copies, and is distributed to 450 branch locations nationwide.
When he’s not busy working on new design concepts for Eighty Three Creative, he loves to cook, and spends his time chasing Chunky, his French Bulldog around Dallas.
“I love Eighty Three! It’s a place for growth, for both clients and for employees, and it’s where the team becomes family – where creativity flows on a daily basis,” says Juan of working at Eighty Three Creative.
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.
Our company culture promotes collaboration and guarantees that no idea, no matter how ludicrous, is welcomed and entertained — although we can’t guarantee we won’t laugh.
