Describe your business in a few words.

Hotspot Creative Solutions is a branding and design agency. A strong brand helps customers see value in your products and service way more than price can. Our mission is to partner with great clients to create confidence inspiring materials that show their value and help them reach their business goals, one brand at a time. We do this through a detail driven discovery and design process where we really get to know our clients and give them the unique solutions. 

What inspired you to start your business?

When I was a graphic designer at a print company I saw a lot of business owners that were being really random with what they were getting designed. They just wanted it to look cool without thoughts of the target, call to action or even their own brand. I wanted to work with clients who saw the value in design and wanted to invest in their business to make their do more than just look good but drive people to take action. Thus, Hotspot Creative was born.

One interesting or fun fact about you or your business.

Fun Fact, if you have a love of sci-fi shows, movies, or Netflix originals we will instantly have some great conversations.

Biggest lesson you’ve learned since starting your business.

There are people that love doing the things you hate or don't know how to do. Learn from them or hire them.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love building lego with my two boys, binging on tv shows with my wife or clearing my mind at the gym.

Favorite thing about coworking:

It's comfortable. I have not felt out of place here for a single moment. Everyone has been very welcoming, the place is very clean and has a cool unique look to it. The clients that have visited me here are always impressed. Then I show them ‘It’s a Secret’ and their minds are blown. I love this place.

How would you describe coworking to somebody?

In my experience coworking is being around like minded, driven individuals who are making business happen. It is a really affordable option other than a coffee shop that gives a completely professional look your business. URBN definitely does coworking well.
