Tracy Sainte Marie has managed design teams for two decades and used her design acumen to support a wide range of clients, both nationally and internationally. For the past decade, Tracy’s design focus has been exclusively on branding and marketing initiatives within the senior living industry. As a graphic designer, she has executed countless communication pieces for over 50 senior living communities located throughout the country. Her ability to give every client their own look and voice is a noteworthy accomplishment that speaks to her excellent communication skills and her thoughtful willingness to explore and translate the unique persona of each community.

In the words of Freeman Thomas, “Good design begins with honesty, asks tough questions, comes from collaboration and from trusting your intuition.” I firmly believe that collaboration along with honest, consistent communication makes for the most successful outcomes in design and in every aspect of life.
I have been very lucky to be able to do what I have loved all my life - design. It’s my hope to continue collaborating with clients and providing design guidance and measurable results for every client we support.
