The Artist

Isaac Traenkenschuh
Artist & Owner of High Motif

Career Highlights

With a heart of service, Isaac’s mindset has always been to provide creative solutions; solutions that are not always directly related to the creative arts. 

From mid 2016 to fall 2019 Isaac worked directly under Glenn Johnson, Photographer and Owner of Coastal Home Photography to manage day to day operations, update the company’s branding and streamline back office work procedures. Sales increased by at least 10%. View Case Study

In 2015, Isaac graduated RCAD. After school, Isaac became fully involved with a faith ministry based in Nokomis, Florida. The ministry communicated and traveled back and forth to Central South America to feed the hungry, support the poor, and mend the broken hearted.

Summer of 2014, between Junior and Senior year of RCAD, Isaac interned with Joe Russ, Motion Designer and Owner of Mografi to animate key framed character performances in the Jenny LeClue Kickstarter Game Trailer. In less than 30 days, the Kickstarter Campaign raised over $100,000, which was almost double their original goal of $60,000.
