The Slim Creative: IG: @theslimcreative – Designer/Photographer

What was your greatest inspiration/motivation to start The Slim Creative?

-The motivation to start The Slim Creative came from my passion to create things. Whether it be logos, photographs, or paintings. I just really love to create and make things that be people appreciate and love. Most importantly to be able to make a living from it and work just for myself is a blessing, but I’d do it even if I didn't make much from it.

What is the overall vision/purpose of The Slim Creative?

-The vision of The Slim Creative is to be a company where small brands and businesses can come to one place and get consistent and quality work for all of their branding needs. I believe that one of the biggest things holding small brands back are their visuals, so TSC is here to be of service and bring a professional quality to the visual aspect of their brand and help in any other way possible. If I can't help you I’ll connect you with someone that I trust can give you the same quality and attention if not better. 

What have been the biggest challenges of creating, launching and maintaining your brand/business?

-I'd say the biggest challenges would probably be separating myself from a very saturated market in creative services. The way I do this is by being consistent, in not only my quality and work, but also in being professional. From my website to my email address I try to run a business that looks and carries itself as such. Being reachable and servicing the needs of my clients is why I do what I do. 

What tips do you have for your consumers that may desire to launch a business of their own?

-My biggest tip would be to do your research. Research your field, your product, and also your competition. At first it’s ok to wear many hats but once it’s time to grow it’s always best to get help in areas that you don't specialize in, it will only make your brand better. If you're not a creative person find someone that is. And lastly, probably most importantly, is to not worry about others around you while you're growing. It is YOUR business and brand so it’s perfectly ok to take steps at your own pace. Success will not happen overnight. 

What are your future plans for The Slim Creative?

-What I see in the future for The Slim Creative is for it to be a full functioning brand agency and creative market. Where entrepreneurs, big and small, can come and get their business up and running all in one place.
