The Intern Experience

July 10, 2014

Our internship program allows students to gain first hand experience at what it’s like working in the industry and offers the opportunity to put their skills to work on real life projects. We were pleased to have three amazing interns with us this past semester.

Kristie, a recent graduate of San Diego State, was actively involved in the creative process on various projects as well attended client presentations and conference calls. She enjoyed her experience so much she has extended her internship with us through the summer.

Robert, also a member of SDSU’s 2014 graduating glass, is another talented designer we were pleased to work with. In addition to his design talents and good humor, we also enjoyed the inter-office rivalry he spurred when it came to hockey.

Hannah, one of our youngest interns, just completed her junior year of high school. Eager to understand the in’s and out’s of the business, she was able learn a little about account and project management, research as well as participate in the creative process and the occasional studio hijinks.

We have enjoyed the new ideas, willingness to learn, and positive contributions all of our interns have brought into the studio each day.

Thank you for keeping us on our toes, asking questions, and joining in the madness!

In San Diego, “ice cream season” never really ends, so if you haven’t tasted ice cream from our friends at Calexico Creamery yet, we’ll give you another reason to give it a try:

Congratulations you two! We are so excited to see where this exciting journey will lead.

Year in Review

January 13, 2014

What an eventful year it has been here at SavSec! As the excitement of the holidays fade to memories, the return to hectic schedules become reality and 2014 charges full speed ahead, we’d like to take a moment to pause and thank YOU, our clients, friends and family for your support this past year and for allowing us to do what we love.

2013 welcomed new connections with some familiar names such as Beckman Coulter, Calexico Creamery, CellScope, Construczion, FedEx Express, Formula PR, and Rady Children’s Hospital, as well as enabled us to grow relationships with some of our existing partners at EPMG, Francis Parker School, Gravity Studios, Intervarsity, Life Technologies, Md7, Neyenesch Printers and The Wood Group.

We firmly believe that our success is determined by the success of our clients whether it be providing guidance to new brands, supporting the fight against human trafficking, or collaborating with individuals that will make scientific discoveries that will change the world, 2013 was a year that proved hard work does indeed payoff.

We are excited to see what opportunities 2014 will bring!


New Logo Debut

Erik Douglas, CEO of one of our new clients, CellScope, was a featured speaker this morning on TechCrunch. And look! He’s wearing a shirt with the logo we designed for them!


Rise of the Aztecs

August 16, 2013

Each year SDSU holds a t-shirt design contest inviting students, staff, faculty, alumni and fans to submit original designs based on the upcoming year’s theme. The winning design will be used for the homecoming t-shirt and other related merchandise.

We are happy to announce that our very own designer (and SDSU Alumni), Ben Liddi’s design has been chosen for the second year in a row!

Congrats Ben, can’t wait to see you rocking this on your new shirt!

Check out his interview featured on the alumni page here.



August 9, 2013

When we work on projects with our clients, we typically have an idea of when and where the end result can and will be seen.
However, we were pleasantly surprised when our friend and photographer Bil Zelman informed us that his work (as well as the promo we created) were featured on the Dwell blog this morning!

It’s always a treat to see our work (and our client’s) pop up in unexpected places.

San Diego Has Spoken

May 15, 2013

We think all of our clients are great, and from the looks of things, so do you!
Each year San Diego restaurants are reviewed by critics and voted on by the public to determine not only the critics choice, but also to find out where Sandiegans love to wine and dine. According to San Diego Magazine, Miho was awarded the 2013 Reader’s Pick for San Diego’s Best Food Truck and Garth Flood from Cowboy Star was listed as one of San Diego’s Top 20 Bartenders.
Way to go guys!

New Additions to the SavSec Team!

April 1, 2013

Meet Ben
Position: Graphic Designer

Ben is a San Diego native, but has moved around a lot. Prior to joining the Sav Sec team in January he spent two years working as a civilian for Navy.

The highlight of his job is solving problems and coming up with creative solutions to things that probably shouldn’t work.

Outside of the office Ben can be found enjoying an Aztec game – “I’m at all of them”.
Fun fact: Ben became a vegetarian on a bet… and has been one for about two years.

Meet Jaquelyn
Position: Project Coordinator/ Studio Manager

Jaquelyn (or as we call her around here, Jackie) moved to San Diego in 2008 to study and eventually graduate from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors Degree in Societal Communications.

Outside the office Jackie can be found unwinding with friends over dinner or hanging out by the pool with a good book.

Fun Fact: She likes to sing in the car while sitting in traffic and calls them “car concerts” and says they help relieve stress and make sitting in traffic not so bad.

Words to live by: “Dare to dream impossible things”
