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 also want to make sure our work is helping bring goodness into this world, by working with brands and individuals that want to make a difference in this world.

We are constantly striving to understand new technologies and are working hard everyday to level up our art.

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 work. We want to create engaging and powerful work. We are in this for the long haul.

We implement project management, and keep you in the loop at all times. While we manage we also make works of art.

tickyboom

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.

Our Approach

What do we value? How can we benefit you in your quest to fulfill your goals? Below will give you a snapshot of how we do things. Feel free to visit our about page to get all things Tickyboom.

░ Detailed Approach

We ask a lot of questions. We really push to get to know you, your needs, and understand your goals. By doing this deep dive we are better equipped to give you the value you seek.

░ We Get Results

We have seen our designs sell buildings, educate the public, and empower business owners. We strive to help you execute and accomplish your goals.

Part of you succeeding, we feel, is equipping you with resources. We provide tutorial videos, and many other project enhancers to help you have the best experience you can.

▒ Project Management

We utilize Asana or Trello to help manage all of our projects together. We really value communication, order, and making sure the project status and progress are crystal clear.

▒ Scope Development

We utilize questionnaires, deep dive discovery sessions, and an open door policy in communication to help make sure the scope is clear and well defined for both of us.

▒ Maintain & Follow-Up

We are always available after a project is done to help maintain the integrity of the work. We value long-lasting relationships - we got your back!

Meet Tim

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!

A little note:
Once created over 1000 screens while working on the responsive design for Toys R Us

Meet Nicky

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.
