Seattle (WA) — November 23, 2015 — WATSON CREATIVE, a design-led business consultancy firm based in Portland, Oregon, today announced the expansion of its business activities with a new location in the Seattle area. The new studio, led by Watson veteran Lacy Tramp, will be located in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, renowned for its vibrant art scene.
WATSON CREATIVE’s portfolio already features a long list of successful collaborations with businesses and institutions based in the state of Washington, including the Seattle Sounders, Microsoft, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, and SmartLab Toys. Watson also collaborated with Microsoft Studios’ 353 Industries on the award-winning Halo franchise.
Lacy Tramp, producer for the Seattle office, is a Watson veteran and key contributor to many of Watson’s award-winning projects. A graduate of Portland State University’s School of Business, Lacy worked as a product marketing manager at Tektronix for three years before joining WATSON two years ago. Her award-winning portfolio at WATSON includes Domaine Serene Wine, Lewis & Clark Bank, Bremik Construction, Jumpshot Pro, Bernie Fagan Soccer Camp, Pick Your Dish, Ahman Green, and NIKE. She worked on loyalty programs for Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, Portland Center Stage, and professional sports teams such as the Oakland Raiders, the Portland Timbers, and the San Francisco 49ers.
“Lacy has been instrumental in WATSON CREATIVE’s growth this year, so it was a no-brainer for her to lead our first expansion,” said Matt Watson, founder and creative director. “The clients she interacted with as producer know her sense of organization and clear communication skills very well. She is the perfect person to bring WATSON’s energy and dynamism to Seattle, and make it thrive there.”
“I can’t wait to bring WATSON CREATIVE’s unique vision and design approach to the Seattle area,” said Lacy Tramp. “The Fremont neighborhood, with its unique art scene and history of attention-grabbing quirkiness, is the ideal spot for a design firm looking to challenge the status quo. For everyone headed to the new office, it already feels like home.”
