My name is Morgan Davis. I’m the CEO + founder of Distinctly Creative, a graphic & fashion designer, brand strategist, a proud Howard University grad, and hopefully your new business coach. Whether you’ve been allowing Netflix & fear to have you perpetually mulling over how to start your business, or you’re a bit more seasoned and trying to determine how you can take your creative business to the next level — I am here for you.
In the past 6+ years, I have helped a variety of small businesses (including my own), and larger organizations like the University of Maryland and George Mason University with their branding, marketing, and design needs. Through this, I’ve acquired a wealth of knowledge in respect to brand development, design & visual presentation, business development, customer discovery + acquisition, online + offline marketing strategy, digital advertising, design thinking, finances, sales and pricing strategies, event planning, and more -- and I’d love to bring some of that insight over to your business.
As a fellow creative entrepreneur, I totally get it. Marketing strategies, value propositions, and profit margins may be the last thing that you want to think about; however, with my unique + creative approach I’ll help bring light to your ideas, reduce self-doubt + imposter syndrome, and grow your profits.
You must be 18+, reside in the DMV, and be a black creative with a company (or aspiring one) that is within a creative industry (fashion, visual art, photography, graphic design, creative services, performing arts, etc.).
