Bluebird is the portfolio website of Tracy Brockhouse.
My graphic design career began when I chose a high school internship at a local studio in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. I later went on to graduate from the design program at Indiana University, then took my education a step further when I graduated from Creative Circus, a portfolio school in Atlanta. I have since worked in agencies big and small from London to North Carolina to Las Vegas. The name “bluebird” is a reference to my own wedding invitation. It featured a bluebird hanging from the lid of a box mailer. It was this project that inspired me to start my own thing. While initially bluebird specialized only in custom wedding invitations, I have recently returned to doing all types of design for all types of folks. I truly enjoy learning what sets each client apart and collaborating to create an effective way to get their message across. When I am not designing, you can find me spending time with my husband and two children in the beautiful New England town of Portland, Maine that I now call home.
“Tracy is a very unique, highly talented graphic designer, and an asset to anyone she does works for. We worked together at a Las Vegas agency for a year on a very high-end resort client and Tracy designed the most beautiful books (one a side sewn, dust jacket, laser die-cut sleeve and custom capacity envelope; the other a case-bound, dust jacket, tissue wrapped in a custom printed box) that captured the message and theme the client was looking for. This is in addition to the many other special pieces she created. Her attention to detail and her use of color, paper stocks and photography surpasses most of the designers I’ve worked with over the years (as in 30 of them). In her quiet dignity, she can pull all team members together to to enjoy and agree with her vision, yet can suddenly surprise you with her wit and humorous insights. Wherever she goes, whoever she works with/for, Tracy will only enhance and increase the vision of the company.”

“Tracy has listened to our needs and helped to create a fresh and updated brand for our company. Her creativity has enabled us to proudly display our image and receive many compliments on our new brand. Tracy has helped to unify our image - we have more than 1 brand she brought together, yet also gave each brand its own logo and identity. I can recommend Tracy without hesitation! Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative”

“I’m so happy to be able to say thank you again to Tracy for her incredibly creative and artistic approach to the design of our special wedding invitations. She was given a theme that was challenging to work around and a tight timeline, but she was so creative, and three years later, people still talk about our event and have kept their special invitations. Thanks again, Tracy! Anyone would be blessed to have you on their team!”
