You can read our mission, learn about our name and then meet us.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create work that is authentic, impacting and helps make your vision come to life. Our mission is to treat every job with care and importance.

We want to make sure our work is helping bring goodness into this world, by working with brands and individuals that want to make a loving impact.

We aren't afraid to say "We don't know, but we will learn and find out an answer", and you will always know where we stand with a project. We don't hold back, but we do it with love.

At the end of the day, we want to roll up our sleeves and get to creating amazing work. We want to create engaging and enduring work. We are in this for the long haul.

Tickyboom Mission Statement

10+ Years Experience

We've been working with clients commercially for 10+ years. We know what it takes to do good work while setting realistic expectations.

We Roll Up Our Sleeves

We wear out our pencils, ask 1,000 questions, and iterate like wizards. We roll up our sleeves and get to work, all wanting you to succeed.

Professional Artists

We implement project management while keeping you in the loop at all times. While we make our works of art.

noun / tyy-ckee-b0OO00-mm

A word made up of a husband and wife's names melded together. Tim handles the 'Ti' part, while Nicky handles the 'cky' part. The 'boom' comes from the impact of our work.

Meet Tim Preut

Tim has always been artsy since he was a kid. He grew up in the Briones Hills with only nature and a cat. He went on to Study at Academy of Art in SF for Graphic Design. Tim loves to create abstract drawings and do street photography. In fact, Tim did a project where he went to all 44 Bart Stations in the Bay Area to capture life around the stations. Interesting.

Tim is also weirdly obsessed with making art around the everyday, common areas of life. Here is to mundane pixels!

Meet nicky Preut

Nicky is our tactile wizard here at Tickyboom. Nicky graduated from San Luis Obispo with a BFA in Graphic Design and if she could, she would make her designs come to life and dance around. Nicky loves Dia De Los Muertos, and loves to make little skulls out of clay. Nicky doesn't bake cookies, but she will bak a Dia De Los Muertos skull.

Nicky was very involved in Younglife, and was a former Young Life camp T-shirt designer and can't remember how many she's designed. Probably hundreds. She loves to represent Younglife by wearing a design from time to time.

A little note:
Favorite and final semester of her Cal Poly years included Glassblowing, Metal Sculpture, Ceramics, and Psychology.
