Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.
— D.W. Winnicott




Sticks Creative is dedicated to small business in Bastrop County. We design with entrepreneurs in mind, by creating solutions that can be used over and over again. Whether you need a clean brand identity to get your idea moving, smart template designs for your everyday processes, or ongoing social media and website management, we've been there and we can help. Your time is valuable, so let us take some things off your plate.

Our studio was started by small business owner and designer, Katie Allcorn. She specializes in helping small businesses create and maintain a brand they can be proud to show off. Katie believes that good business is about healthy balance. When not talking shop or running around her restaurant, Katie can be found carving linoleum, writing about her wacky town or sitting on a porch somewhere with her family.



"Sticks Creative took over our social only six weeks ago, and is already having a huge impact on our numbers! The sneak peeks of our new website design are to die for! We have thoroughly enjoyed working with her!"

"I'm very happy with the creative process that brought my logo to reality. I gave Katie artistic freedom with a request to 'fit the location' as well as my vision for my shop and I feel she accomplished the goal beyond my expectations."

"Our team worked with Katie to develop our logo and branding and it was a wonderful experience. It is a challenge to make design decisions with multiple people involved and, as a team, we had a difficult time deciding what we were aiming for in our brand. Katie handled all of this beautifully. She truly has a gift of capturing the essence of a brand and creating a visual design to represent your company. She asks pointed questions, welcomes honest feedback and gives multiple options to make sure you are completely satisfied with the designs. Aside from her talent, we were also impressed by her ability to synthesize ALL of our demands while remaining patient and positive. We highly recommend working with Katie!"

"I loved working with Katie on our logo for a dream project of mine. She was easy to work with, communicated well and was prompt through every step of the process. Sometimes I feel rather lost on graphic projects so finding someone you enjoy working with who can interpret the chaos of what you are wanting is a breath of fresh air. Katie has great design sense and I’d definitely recommend her on any project you have."

"Katie helped me create the perfect logo for my yoga and therapy business. She was super patient, helpful, and listened intently to my ideas and vision. Never did I feel pressured to accept anything that wasn't just what I wanted, and eventually we arrived at exactly what I had envisioned for a logo. She worked hard to stay aligned with what I wanted, and created something that is super reflective of my business and my personality. Would highly recommend Katie's services to anyone, especially budding entrepreneurs!"

"Katie is kinda unstoppable. Faced with the formidable challenge of managing priorities for a team with way too many stakeholders, Katie put on a daily balancing act that few could match - and always did so with a remarkably positive attitude. She fights the good fight, solves problems and just gets things done - simply put, Katie is someone that colleagues at every level want on their team."

- Adam Greenspan


"The quality of Katie's design concepts during her time at Blufish was phenomenal. We were lucky to have her skills on hand for many different projects, and she fit into our team dynamic seamlessly. Her designs were always well received by our clients and her award-winning work is still on display at our office today."
