Jacki is a UX designer at a new firm in Seattle. She’s thoughtful, opinionated and loves the arts. When she’s not shopping for vintage homewares for her Capitol Hill loft, Jacki enjoys catching plays at Seattle Rep. An avid fan of City Arts, she reads the magazine and attends a few events every year. Jacki works in an in-demand field, enjoying a comfortable salary relatively early in her career, and is starting to invest.
Sharon practices contract law from her Russian Hill home office that she’s hoping to remodel soon. She has her Stanford alma mater sticker on the back of her European sedan, which she uses to zip her two kids to their private Montessori. On weekends she and her husband hire a sitter and see shows at SFJAZZ or A.C.T., sometimes getting dinner or a drink afterward, where they ponder destinations for their next big family vacation.
Horace has worked at Boeing for 32 years and is gearing up to enjoy his retirement. His Wallingford Craftsman has appreciated in value in recent years, and he and his husband are planning on downsizing to a downtown condo. They want to easily get to the Pacific Northwest Ballet and Seattle Opera, where they are season ticket holders, so they’re looking for a realtor. Horace’s husband is planning on surprising him with a cruise once his retirement is official.

We produce events specifically for our client partners. Custom events can include public parties, private receptions, ticketed performances and whatever else we can dream up. Events are tailor-made and customized to whatever our clients may need.
We take great pride in the expertise of our editorial team and love to share what—and who—we know. We offer media sponsorship to businesses and organizations aligned with our values and goals.
Some organizations we have collaborated with include the following:
There is no better way to reach the LGBTQ community than through the Pride Guide. The Guide is an indispensable resource for all of the events during Seattle’s Pride Month, including the Pride Parade. The Guide is produced in partnership with Seattle Pride, the volunteer-driven nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate the culture, heritage and diversity of Seattle’s LGBTQ communities and their allies.
The Seattle International Film Festival is the largest and the most highly attended film festival in the country. Encore partners with SIFF to produce the SIFF Guide, which provides information on all that SIFF has to offer, and the SIFF Catalog, a comprehensive source of information on festival films. The two publications are read by more than 125,000 people in the Greater Seattle area.
Encore has experience working with clients large and small. Each project and process is tailor-made to the needs of the organization. Running the gamut in scale and scope of services provided, we’ve worked in a variety of industries, including travel and tourism, sport and leisure and, of course, arts and culture.
