- Ava Duvernay
Leah is the creative mind behind CreARTive Designz. When I launched The Phoenix Project, one of my goals was to intentionally circulate the crowd-funded money back into the African-American community. Every single dollar spent went from your hands to mine back to brown hands like ours. One thing that I also wanted was to equally distribute the money between men and women. I put out an all call on Facebook for a graphic artist and was met with an overwhelming amount of recommendations for Ms. Leah. When I looked up her clientele list, it was really impressive. This young woman is a force in the creative arts world from painting high- quality on of a kind art to graphic design work on an impeccable skill level. I contacted her about doing the cover of my Spoken Word CD.
So what happened?
Communication: Her response time is unreal. You know the fears of working with our community. Well Leah separates herself above and beyond. She and her team are attentive and connected to your needs. You really feel like a VIP. Honestly, I don’t know what else she could have done other than fly me in by helicopter to view the city. No but seriously, CreARTive Designz communication is that top notch and I will explain in detail that a little later.
Artistic Expression and Vision: The talent of this company to gather your ideas and then express them is fantastic. After a consultation, in which, they truly listen to you proofs are rendered. Each time I had very little if anything to offer in exchange of how to make it better. I was incredibly pleased and just moved to the point of tears to see someone see my vision like I saw it in my head.
Timeliness: The dedication to deliver on time products was truly unmatched. I have dealt with plenty of graphics artist and they often try to create deadlines that they just don’t meet. Well each deadline was not only met but early. The coolest part was being able to see what stage your project was in.
Client Portal: I know a client portal! I am not talking about the user friendly website: https://creartivedesignz.com/ - I am speaking about a custom built client portal for you where you get virtual assistance, a drop box to your project, spaces for conversation and creation, and an online chat box directly to the company. I was just too done. Like take my ghost now brown eyed baby Jesus…I saw that client portal and was like OMG!!!! It was so DOPE!
Prices: The prices are competitive and such a value compared to her counterparts around Memphis. Honestly, I found them beyond fair and reasonable. Most of the prices are online at the website so it is not a guessing game. Also, custom packages are the name of her business. I have no problem recommending her at full market value and price. She is worth every single penny.

With all that said, THANK YOU LEAH- When I tell you, I love you, Your heart, Your art, and the PROFESSIONALISM that you displayed. I mean that.
