We had the good fortune of connecting with Lindsay Troncone + Austin Moses and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lindsay + Austin, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
Intertwined Presence was created with the goal in mind to be able to do what we love, with the people we love, all while making a solid income and spending time with our families. Our mission statement is, “A couple of creatives that aim to help others’ visions come to life through detail and thinking out of the box.” We are both creative souls at heart so being able to be in a field that allows us to express that is a dream. Our end goal is to be able to work with high end clients whether that be with branding for growing companies or creating custom wedding invitations. The interactions with our clientele is a huge part of what we love about our industry. We want to work with individuals that have big dreams and believe in the power of art and design to attract their ideal customer or to set the tone for what they are aiming to express. Our end goal is to also be able to continue to work remotely and be able to spend as much time with our growing families as possible all while building a brand we adore. We want to create graphics, invitations, and brand designs that are shared by people all over the world for inspiration both visually and emotionally. We are a young company but we have no doubt that we will continue to grow into the big shoes we aim to fill!  

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We own a design company called Intertwined Presence. We create custom artwork for our clients ranging from invitations, to greeting cards, to photography, to frame-able pieces! We started out a year and a half ago and haven’t looked back since. We are set apart in the sense that we truly listen to the heart and vision of our clients. We take all of their ideas (no matter how big) and we create a vision for what they desire. The fact that we take their inspiration and put their own personal spin on it, really makes us different from a lot of other invitation and design companies. Starting a company sounds very glamorous and it definitely has its perks but we have had to learn so much along the way. With each error or failure we have gained knowledge, wisdom, and patience. Through each of those “failures” we have grown and developed more into experts of our trade. I think once we learned to look at slip ups less as tragedies and more as growth opportunities things really began to shift for us. We are passionate about what we do and are the first to say that we are going to always be educating ourselves to be better for our clients.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

– Tacos and surf & turf fries from The Taco Stand in Encinitas – Brussels sprouts from Local Tap House in Oceanside

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We owe a big thank you to our customers first and foremost. The amount of love and trust they have given us has blown us away. They encourage us to be better and to continue to grow in our trade. We would also have to say thank you to each other. Having a partner who is also a best friend is typically something most would say to stay clear from. However, we truly do support one another in all aspects of life, we aren’t afraid to tell the other one how it is and we collaborate like we are one brain! We also owe a big thank you to our significant others! They have supported us and assisted us in any way possible since day one. Without their faith and belief in us there is no way we would be where we are today.
