Located in Seattle Washington, Traci Daberko is an illustrator and graphic designer. She was born and raised in the farmlands of Nebraska receiving her education at the University of Nebraska Kearney. She quickly landed her first job at a small Seattle design firm, Gage Design. After 4 years, she then moved on to The Leonhardt Group, now known as Fitch International.

In search of new challenges, Traci joined forces with a co-designer, Dennis Clouse, to create nationally known Cyclone Design for seven years. Throughout her career, Traci has been recognized in the design industry’s leading publications and achieved numerous awards for her design and illustration work. She was honored to be selected as one of the judges for the 2001 Communication Arts Design Annual.


In 2002, she decided to go solo creating DBRKO hoping to invent the next visual trend. Traci has been so fortunate to work with some of the most extraordinary brands and well known clients across the globe. The illustration side of the 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 60 years.
