Employee Spotlight: Torrey Ratay

0604 KMA June SM Torrey Blog Employee Spotlight: Torrey Ratay

Serious about design and light-hearted about life, Torrey Ratay is the ideal person you’d want to be stranded on an island with. Read on to find out why.  

What is your role at KM&A?

Creative Lead

Before being an employee at KM&A, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

The number of hours I have clocked with kids is unreal. I’ve been a nanny. I’ve worked at a day care. I’ve also worked coat check at St Elmo’s and got to meet Zac Efron and take his coat.

What is your proudest moment at KM&A?

II feel proud every time I get positive feedback on a large-scale project or brand I’ve created. Each brand book presentation has been a steppingstone in my career. When I get to see our clients finally envision what their brand can become and sound like – that’s my most exciting moment.  

Office nickname?

Sweet T 

How do you define success?

Client happiness. When a client is overwhelmingly enthusiastic and eager to implement their new creative, that’s a win and success.  

Do you have a coffee shop drink of choice?

First, give me an everything bagel with cream cheese and black coffee please. OR, I’ll take a Spanish latte from Kaffeine. It’s made with sweetened condensed milk and it’s delicious.  

What do you like to do when you aren’t creating stellar brands or delivering killer creative?

I love to cook! I’m writing a crookbook. I also enjoy exploring local coffee shops, bars, restaurants and things like that. Oh, and I sing.  

What’s on your bucket list?

A vacation with all of my friends and family to a castle in the south of France. It’s always been a dream to travel with my friends and family.

What’s your go-to Clustertruck order?

My Clustertruck order varies. If I’m feeling healthy the buffalo chicken wrap. If I’m feeling unhealthy, the buffalo mac n cheese.  

Best concert you’ve ever attended?

It’s a three-way tie. Florence & the Machine at White River. It was a gorgeous night and she was just as good as you’d expect. I also had a blast standing front row at Dawes with Whit. Last but not least, Stevie Nicks! I love her so much and she performed the song that I love the most and isn’t on any of the albums.

It’s safe to say Torrey’s creativity extends beyond typeface, texture and color palettes – from curating the perfect dinner party menu to planning the ultimate weekend getaway, she’s our go-to girl.
