Being A Designer Currently Feels Like:

Endless client revisions and constant self doubt

Daily stress from inconsistent income

Chasing down clients for unpaid invoices

Having to be on call 24/7 for clients

Questioning if design is worth it anymore

Having imposter syndrome about your process

What If We Told You It Could Feel Like:

Zero client revisions on projects

$10K months working with dream clients

Always getting paid on time every time

Setting your own work hours

Feeling confident as a designer

Impressing clients with a 5 star experience

I'M READY!!

Coach Marisa quit her corporate job making $70K a year during covid to become a designer and was able to double her salary in the first few months of her own business.

Coach Kenzi started out charging $75 for logos in college and years later is able to book $15,000 clients after graduating as a self employed designer.

We started out knowing nothing about running a design business but through years of trial & error we found our way to success and we want to share everything with YOU.

We want to help fast-track your journey to success in just 3 months, rather than enduring years of difficult clients, confusing projects, no boundaries, and an empty inbox.

"Since graduating DBA, I can honestly say it was the best investment this far in my business journey! Before, I was undercharging, taking on any client I could, and offering everything under the sun. Now, I’m going through a major rebrand to align even more with target audience, working with dream clients, and have an amazing team! Lots of changes have occurred to make this possible, but the biggest change would have to be mindset."

“Being part of the Design Biz Academy has literally transformed my whole life. I had just started my business when I signed up for DBA and didn’t quite know what I was doing. I felt like after this semester I’ve gained so much confidence & so many more skills - I’ve pretty much tripled my rates. The coaching that I received through the programme was phenomenal”

“The Brief Collective truly changed my design business for the better. After finding out about them from a workshop in early 2023, I instantly clicked with Kenzi & Marisa’s teaching style. I graduated Semester 5 of DBA University this past September and Kenzi & Marisa both helped me to raise my prices, book my first $10,000 client, build my confidence & see my business succeed. I never thought I would be where I am today"

Frequently Asked Questions

are there payment plans?

Payment plans are only offered during our pre-enrollment periods at limited times throughout the year to protect our curriculum.

do you have a bundle deal?

No BUT you will receive a 25% off code if you enroll in any of our programs.

do you offer refunds?

Due to the digital nature of our products we do NOT allow refunds of any sort with no exceptions. This includes pre-enrollment payment plans and items paid in full.

can i take multiple dba programs at the same time?

No, our DBA programs rotate on a semester schedule meaning you can only take one program at a time!

do i have to take the programs in order?

No, but to maximize your results and offer your clients the best experience we recommend taking both DBA University & Tech Institute! We recommend taking DBA University before taking Tech Institute although it's not a requirement.

HOW DO I ACCESS THE CURRICULUM?

All course curriculum is hosted inside our grade-specific member portals that you'll gain instant access to after enrolling. Member portal access expires after 1 year.

when are the group calls?

Please visit the specific program page (DBA University or DBA Tech Institute) for specific call times and further information on the upcoming semester schedule!

is this only for u.s. residents?

No, we welcome students from all over the world! Please be aware that group coaching calls for Design Biz Academy University are in Eastern Standard Time and our pricing modules are in USD currency. All group coaching calls are recorded and made available to students.

Do you need a graphic design degree to enroll?

No! Although Coach Kenzi has her Bachelor's Degree, we started the Design Biz Academy knowing that standard curriculum leaves a lot to be desired when starting your own design business. That's partly why we created DBA.
