HI THERE! WE ARE
THE COACHES BEHIND
THE BRIEF COLLECTIVE!

Being a WFH business owner can be SO isolating. We started a chat to be the support we were missing. We spilled client tea, talked contracts, and gave design opinions when requested. We realized that we were all suffering from the *exact* same things within our business. It was a pivotal moment for us when we realized that other's were probably feeling the same way in their own businesses. It was then that The Brief Collective was born. 

It all started with a groupchat

Us three design coaches have very different backgrounds which is part of the reason The Brief Collective is so valuable. We've brought together our various learning methods, design styles, and perspectives to provide the ultimate online design resource.

three heads are better than one...

The Organized One

Marisa specializes in keeping all of us where we need to be.  She directs our team in task organization, finance and  big picture creative projects. Her 12 years experience in corporate marketing management allows her to teach students about Finance 101, Process Roadmaps, and Elevating the Guest Experience. 

The Technical One

Sam specializes in being the resident TBC problem solver. She creates our illustrations, manages the backend, and knows her way around any Showit website. Her extensive ingenuity in design helps students sharpen Illustrator skills, niche down, and the learn the power of a portfolio. 

The Marketing One

Kenzi's zone of genius is social media marketing, strategizing good outcomes, and communication on every forum. Her college career and experience running a booming design business support our students when it comes to conquering pricing mindset blocks, infusing brands with strategy, and content that converts. 

Meet The Team

Three designers who met online, decided to start a Design Community, and it grew from there.

"I went from charging $30 for a logo to minimum $3500 for branding. Thank you so much for all of your advice & support. You are all amazing human beings & work hard to help others. Design Biz Academy has been life changing and helped me down a path that is both positive & what I’ve always wanted."

"I knew if I wanted to actually have my own successful business in graphic design, I would have to actually take action. So I took a chance and I invested in Design Biz Academy. This was the best course that helped me be confident enough to put my business out there."
