Setting the Course

After years managing cutting edge TV production, Tricia dove out of her cubicle to release a creative captain that longed to roam free. The seasoned partners at DOG EAR DESIGN invited her to help manage their studio with her hard-won, top-notch production management skills part time for them. There she got a treasure of training from Ross and Ken in the print graphics business on the job, while taking design theory courses at Platt College.

Before long she climbed aboard Dog Ear full time and might never have left, ‘cept her baby girl came along. At the helm of her new Mac with a new baby on her lap, Tricia was able to get her own rugged design vessel sailing. Her home studio collaborated with STUDIO C to help Carla handle the bounty of book, program and directory work she attracted. Tom at CITY PUBLISHING found her when he asked her friend Rosanne with a small business, who did that brochure for you? And a decade of collaborating on high quality direct mail advertising ensued.


Said Tricia in 2012, “I couldn’t leave GAL GRAPHICS now, it’s part of who I am along with being Mama and co-captain of this family. Sure, I thought once my child was settled in grade school I might be back at some 9-to-5 post somewhere. But once you captain your own ship you grow accustomed to fresh air and the long view, ever enticing you to stay in the creative flow.”

Check out the portfolio and then let GAL GRAPHICS take care of all your document needs, concept to delivery. Tricia will bring fresh perspective, professional quality and speedy delivery to all your publishing projects, and service with enthusiasm you need to ride those killer business waves.


Tricia got a regular onsite gig in the editorial graphics department at the nationally-acclaimed news outlet THE SIGNAL in 2013, right after baby turned ten. She still continues to captain her own ship with freelance work from her home studio, Gal Graphics.
