Flourish is THE resource for designers, overflowing with tools, resources and trade secrets that will help you dig deep, craft a career you love and uplevel your business from every angle.
Given the right conditions, seeds have the ability to lie dormant for years. But as soon as they're planted, nourished and surrounded by the nutrients that are necessary for growth, they begin to sprout.
Once sprouted, seeds begin to take root. Roots grow by attaching themselves to a greater or more fundamental whole, which provides them with support that helps establish them deeply and firmly.
Once rooted, plants begin to flourish. As the result of being in a healthy environment, they grow in a vigorous way, developing rapidly and successfully, they begin to thrive.
Flourish nourishes creatives, inspires them to dig deep, grow roots in our community and flourish in their art practice. Members are equipped with all of the necessary resources and support that are needed for consistent long term growth and surrounded with support. No matter where you are in your journey to flourishing.
