We’re building the agency we always wanted to work at, with people we always wanted to work with.

Tracy and Locke may have founded our company, but today, each of us feels as if our name is on the door. That’s because we’ve taken ownership of our future by shaping our agency to be a true reflection of ourselves, our values and our passions.

  • Our Guiding Principles

    Values that mean something.

    Our Guiding Principles

    It is our mission to lead with integrity and create an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable bringing their authentic self regardless of where they are born, who they love, the color of their skin or the gender they identify with. We celebrate our crafts and are committed to creating great work, nurturing every spark of potential that shines within us all. We are all co-founders of TL’s future and we’re shaping it to be a reflection of ourselves.

  • Community Activism

    Giving back is part of our agency ethos.

    Community Activism

    In addition to Tracy-Locke Cares Week where we come together to do good in our neighborhoods, we are an active ally of the Triangle Community Center supporting our local LGBTQIA+ community, a partner to The Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation, to spread kindness in memory of a little girl killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting and supporter of the Off The Street Club, Chicago's oldest boys and girls club.

  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

    Making TL a place for all.

    Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

    We work to foster a culture of inclusion where everyone is welcome to thrive. Leveraging the experience of our Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer at OCG, Kirya Francis, we have created space to celebrate, space to learn, space to be safe, space to be proud because at TL we have space for everyone.

  • Internship Programs

    Giving young talent a taste of TL.

    Internship Programs

    We love what we do and are committed to sharing that passion with the next generation of designers, strategists, thinkers and communicators. Our internships are designed to give you real, hands-on experience working on iconic brands. Just ask any TL’er who started as an intern. Fair warning, there are a bunch!

  • Training & Development

    Learning from some of the best in the biz.

    Training & Development

    TL University has educational opportunities for all employees. From Customer IQ webinars to agency inspiration sessions, industry insights to self-directed certifications; learning from the best in the biz is right at your fingers tips.

  • Agency Culture

    We take our work seriously, not ourselves.

    Agency Culture

    We encourage all employees to participate in creating a culture that nurtures a fun, lively, and informal atmosphere which helps us be more productive, more creative, and more engaged. This is all part of Belonging@TL. After all, we may take our work seriously, but not ourselves!

  • Hybrid Working Model

    Delivering brilliance without borders.

    Hybrid Working Model

    We have worked hard to adapt our workplace to be flexible, fair and thoughtful. While the office is open every day, employees are only expected to work on-site 3 days a week. Because sometimes, nothing can replace collaborating with your team in person.

  • Work/Life Integration

    Agency quiet time, bonus weekends & PTO.

    Work/Life Integration

    We believe in integrating work and life in service to shared goals. We have created initiatives that help us better achieve quality of work as well as quality of life: robust holiday schedule including several three- and four-day weekends throughout the year and closing the agency between Christmas and the new year, generous vacation policy, lunch-n-learns, listening sessions and a variety of employee resource groups to join.

  • Conferences

    3%, ADColor, ShopTalk, SXSW & More.


    Industry events and forums are incredible opportunities to learn new perspectives, get inspired, make connections and grow your career. As many of these opportunities are now virtual, we have been able to give more people the opportunity to participate.
