Our Why

We are driven by our mission to elevate the world through supporting world changing, visionary entrepreneurs and their aspirations to make an impact with their personal vision and their creative bodies of work.

Why “Visionary Entrepreneurs”? We currently live in a world where we can easily jump on our online soap box and we have the power to utilize our platforms to educate, uplift and inspire our communities. We support visionary entrepreneurs who use their online platforms to raise awareness about issues that matter, teach valuable tools to enhance lives of others or to spread love with their message.

We believe that your brand & website is not just about the transactions that happen between your business and those you serve, but about having an online home where you teach, connect with and inspire your tribe.

Zhena Muzyka, author of “Life By The Cup”, publisher at Enliven – Simon & Schuster

“Working with Donna was a dream come true. For 6 years I tried to find the right designer who understood my personal brand. I wasted so much time and money on design styles that I had to toss out. With one simple conversation with Donna, she was able to completely understand the look, feel and message I wanted to put out to the world. Her designs were all clean, clear and spoke to the very essence of my business. Donna is the real deal, an absolute treasure and a joy to work with. If you don’t believe me, just look at my website, podcast art, logo!”

“I want to be on record as saying that I consider Donna  to be absolutely indispensible to my work.  There is no brand designer that I am aware of who balances such uncommon attunement to her clients’ personal style and needs, yet also manages to bring 100% of her own refined taste and passion to the collaboration.  It is an unbeatable combination!”
