Upon graduation with a Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida, Carly Jacobson joined TPG

Architecture in 2008, one of the largest interior architectural firms in New

York City.  TPG is a leader in innovative workplace and retail design with a portfolio spanning

many industry and client types. At TPG, Carly began her career as a junior designer and quickly

rose through the ranks to associate, senior associate, managing associate and Creative Director.

Carly forged invaluable ongoing relationships with client leaders in technology, advertising, and media

including notable work for The Interpublic Group of Companies.  Her boldness and sophistication as a

designer have resulted in some of TPG’s most celebrated projects — such as Spotify’s New York and Los

Angeles offices, MullenLowe Group, Stuart Weitzman and IEX— and resulted in published work

appearing in Contract Magazine and Architectural Record. Developing relationships within the industry

and cultivating the next generation of designers is important to Carly.  As a Creative Director at TPG, she

led many project teams, creating a collaborative work culture. Remaining connected with her alma

mater, she actively participates in department and college events held in NYC and also has returned to

Gainesville to share professional accomplishments and interact with Department of Interior Design

students and faculty. Carly founded Studio Superette in 2015 with her husband Eric Bourassa, a licensed

architect. Most notably, the studio was involved in Nike’s new flagship store in NYC.

She has also begun a new strategic role with Walter K., a 150- year-old German luxury furniture company

with deep roots in design history. Carly is leading the effort in building a new market for the brand in

North America.
