ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Entrepreneurship, and the arts has been a large part of Morgan’s life. At the age of 17, Morgan started her first plus-size clothing line, where she would sew custom pieces for women sizes 14 and up. From there, this created a full-fledged catalyst into business development, fashion design, graphic design, marketing, photography, and videography.
Morgan currently provides an array of thought-provoking, unique digital content for a variety of organizations and businesses within the DMV (DC, MD, VA) area and George Mason University through website design, logos, marketing material, product photography, lifestyle photography, head shots, and digital marketing campaigns.
In addition to this Morgan also provides various opportunities and platforms for black creative entrepreneurs to grow personally and professionally as the founder and CEO of Distinctly Creative.
Previously, she has worked with Google to help small and medium businesses better assess their marketing goals, the University of Maryland, Fashion Law Week DC, and various independent clothing lines.
As a proud design graduate of Howard University, Morgan constantly strives to provide innovative ways to help creative entrepreneurs succeed professionally -- especially those within the black community because representation matters.
