Owner & Founder
Hi, I’m Stacey – Owner, lead graphic designer and photographer at zipcode creative. I’ve been in multifamily since 2015 and worked on over 300 unique apartment brands including conventional, senior living and student housing. Having been a renter myself for many years, I’ve developed a passion for helping make apartment home living an elevated experience through creative visuals. With quality design, branding, and professional imagery – I get to play a small but mighty role in making a community a must-see!
My career path started with a love of photography that emerged in high school and lead me to a bachelor’s degree in architectural photography from the top photography school in the US, Brooks Institute. However, graduating from this degree gave me a rude awakening – it’s very difficult to land a full-time job as a photographer, especially in the area I had specialized in. In order to make ends meet I took some base-knowledge that translated over from my studies and became a self-taught graphic designer, freelancing my way between creative photo and design projects.
After a few years freelancing, I accepted a full-time job as a graphic designer for a multifamily development and management company. I had worked in architectural, interior design and real estate industries before, but multifamily was a whole new world that opened up to me and that I learned to love. Three years later, I experienced an unfortunate lay-off from my role and decided (with the guided direction of God’s grace -another story for another day-) to start zipcode creative. I saw a need for a creative support role in the multifamily industry, seeing many small to medium firms being staffed with amazing marketing managers who just can’t do it all!
I also wanted to provide a solution that would turn the typical agency model on it’s head! Anyone who has worked with creative agencies knows they can be pricey and take FOREVER to complete projects, some of which are not up to your standards when the art is finally delivered. Which is why zipcode creative is modelled to solve those pain points by being on trend with design, affordable, responsive in communication, and extremely timely – we want our clients to feel like we are an extension of their in-house team!
Reach out on Linkedin, I’d love to connect.
