Designing for good.

Good things are happening around the world and people should know about it. At Talking Story Creative Studio, I work closely with organizations, foundations and social enterprises that are dedicated to making the world a better place. Through thoughtful and compelling design, I shine light on what organizations are doing, the impact of their work, and how others can get involved.  


What does it mean to ‘talk story’?
To 'talk story’ is a common expression used in Hawaii. In it’s simplest form it means to casually chat with someone, but it is also founded on the values of connecting and sharing stories with one another. This is what design means to me.


What does Talking Story do?
Talking Story is dedicated to working with organizations to share what they have to say with and to the world. Through brand and design consulting, I will work with you to create a visual presence that connects, informs and sparks action in others.


Interested in working together?

I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse community of organizations tackling the world’s biggest problems and I'm always looking to expand impact. I'd love to learn more about you and how I can help share your story.



I’d had trouble with other designers in the past – not meeting deadlines, not taking time to understand our organization or work, lacking creativity and vision – but working with Traci was exactly what I had hoped for and needed. Traci immediately grasped our needs, had a vision for the user experience, and working with her was an easy and positive experience, even though our project was extremely complex and multifaceted. I recommend Traci with no reservations because I know that she brings the same positive, visionary design to all her work.

Working with Traci was a breathe of fresh air! She understood exactly what we needed to portray and got it turned around quickly to us. She was honest with her timelines and open to changes we wanted made. Happy to recommend her to anyone.
