Who We Are




A diverse group of talented individuals—not trees—that grow together, benefiting from each other without any substitution.

Thicket Media is a network of creative talents, throughout the Central Valley, who work collectively to bring new meaning, purpose, and value to neighboring communities.

The aim is to grow community presence and improve human well-being and livelihood through beautiful design.

Why We Exist

At Thicket Media, we realized many non-profits, public sectors, and small businesses are constantly looking for creative help, but don’t know who to reach out to—most ask around until they get referred to someone. On the other hand, many talented high school and college students are hungry for real-world experience to help diversify their portfolio, but don’t know who to reach out to—most wait until they get referred by someone. This is where we come in and help—the quicker we can connect people, the sooner we can build a better tomorrow.

Broadening Opportunities for Freelancers

Every freelancer in our network is carefully reviewed and hand-selected to fit the needs of our clients.  In fact, freelancers who work through Thicket’s network often transition to fulfilling careers because of how diverse their portfolio has become and how well-advanced their communication and implementation is just by going through the experiences.

Affordable, Easy Access to Local Creatives

As mentioned earlier, every freelancer in our network is carefully reviewed and hand-selected for each specific project. And the best part? All the freelancers in our network are locals.  Support your local freelancer by helping them help you.

The Craftsmanship

It’s yin and yang. We craft every project with a true passion and attention to detail because we work with people in your neck of the woods. If one flourish, the other one will too.


We believe integrated marketing is a living, breathing, and growing strategy.  With consumers being community builders and brand influencers, drive any business model, product, or services into the direction you want them to go. Each time an audience sees your message, it is reinforced in their mind, build greater awareness, and trust over time.  So when they’re ready to go, your message is golden.

Graphic Design

We believe that sophisticated graphic design boosts every brand or product and can make a real difference.  By identifying and understanding the essence and core values of your brand, we create your unique identity – loud and clear. We love to mix analogue with digital techniques, we love to experiment and we love to explore new fields.


Whether it’s documenting an event or producing fine art, we believe photos have the ability to enhance our thoughts and stir our imagination. We love to experiment ways photos are captured and interpreted.  Our strong blend of creativity and innovative techniques turn any moment into a lasting impression.
