“I have had the pleasure of contracting Keith Locke to work with and for me during my time at World Vision, Outreach Inc., and now currently in my role at Purpose Driven.


I lean into him and his brand expertise time and time again. Whether support for a simple marketing project or executing a complete strategic brand launch, Keith Locke is my first call. I trust his branding experience, insight, strategy and design completely. He has a proven track record and has helped fuel the success of the organizations I work for over a decade now, and make no plans on changing.” 


— Lynne Abrams, Director of Marketing (Lead Generation), Church Engagement | Currently, Communications Director for Purpose Driven


“It is rare to come across a creative that thinks like a business leader, church planter, and brand manager, but that is what I found in Keith Locke at Seek First. From my time as director of the Church Multiplication Network to my launch of Urban Islands Project, Keith understood intuitively what was needed to set our vision apart from other like-minded organizations - not to give us an air of superiority, but a unique language and image of distinction, that enabled us to discover the right kind of planter. His years in the faith community, as well as experience and execution in brand, would serve any leader or organization well."


— Steve Pike, Founder Urban Islands Project
Previously, Director of Church Multiplication Network


"For 10 years running, I have engaged Keith Locke from Seek First to brand the Ignite Youth Leadership Conference. Yes, you read that right. 10 years. Back-to back.


There is a reason for doing that, that goes beyond transactional relationships. Ours is a spiritual, missional, brotherly grace-filled...and, a working relationship.


Keith and I have both been able to get the job done together, far better than we could apart. His ability to deliver a great end product, year after year, when our creative needs run often times to polar extremes in concept and style, is a testament to his tenacity as well as his inclination to 'seek first' the advancement of the kingdom of God, while at the same time, seek to meet our timely and very practical needs in making each year a success.


I count Keith as both a brother in arms and a friend. And I keep coming back year after year, because what we uniquely deliver together, that no one else would."  


— Jonathan Meyer, Director of the Ignite Youth Conference and

and Ignite Student Ministries

"As a creative partner and collaborator on several key projects for the Assemblies of God, Keith Locke of had the ability to consider and balance, strategic issues, creative concepts and practical considerations for beautiful outcomes. In the first year contracted, Keith was able to shepherd very important and complex launch campaigns for multiple brands through numerous concept iterations and shifts in direction. In a shifting organization, Keith knew how to interpret the ideas of key stakeholders and create cohesive and successful campaigns for products and events on a consistent basis under often tight timelines. Thank you Keith for a job well done."

"I have had the privilege of working with Keith Locke from Seek First on 2 critical projects. Keith has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to take my thoughts, visions, and ideas, and create masterful visual representations, using appropriate fonts, color schemes, and page layouts. On both occasions, he created brand identities that allowed us to approach the marketplace with confidence and professionalism. Seek First is my "go-to" in this space."


– Linc Cassady, Sales Executive at J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc.
