Thank you for stopping by. My name is Traci Daberko. You might find my last name find very unusual. No need to pronounce it correctly, you just get bonus points for attempting it. You'll get double points if you get it correct.


I'm a graphic designer and illustrator in Seattle, Washington. I began DBRKO in 2002. I have been so fortunate to work with some of the most extraordinary brands and well known clients across the globe.


The illustration side of my business is now proudly represented by Gerald & Cullen Rapp in New York City. They are considered to be the industry premier source for editorial and advertising illustration services for over 75 years. 


I consider every client and project unique. Whether it's a branding, design or an illustration project, I will roll up my sleeves and explore new creative approaches for each and every project. By stepping out of the traditional conventions, combined with the right talent and collaboration, the result can visually make a difference. One of my favorite quotes is "If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary." by Jim Rohn.


Drop me a line sometime. Lets take a risk in making something extraordinary together.
