TI LOCKE is the Editorial Director and a Senior Staff Editor for Nitis Books. Ti has been a writer all her life. She majored in communications at college and has worked for newspapers, and radio and TV stations as a writer, advertising copywriter, editor, layout editor, typesetter, and photographer. She once actually yelled, “Stop the press!” when she discovered that the mayor’s first name had been misspelled as “Fart” in a page twelve headline. Ms. Locke has also worked as a high school math and science teacher; her exceptionally dry wit is a by-product of years of explaining why factoring trinomials is significant. In addition, Ti worked at KCTS, the Seattle PBS affiliate, reviewing, buying and producing programming for the K-20 school market. She wrote and/or edited the curriculum and web content for many of these projects. She continues to work with new documentary filmmakers, helping to get their scripts and budgets broadcast-ready. Ti’s big passions are typography and photography. She will not call a font a typeface and vice versa. She has a digital camera, but she still shoots film—and Polaroid, for as long as the film stock lasts.
