Creative Voyage encompasses many things. It is a podcast. It is a publisher and a publication. It is a host to workshops, courses, and events and a maker of thoughtfully produced goods. It is also an intention and a spirit, a process and a platform, a resource and a reimagined way of being. Above all, Creative Voyage is a home for discerning professionals whose practice is their true calling.
As a collective of individuals, we recognize that while our endeavors may be independent in nature, we don’t need to traverse this path alone. Along the way, our peers across fields and experience levels—from the novice to the expert—help us to hone our skills, define our values, and better ourselves. How do we nurture our creative minds and souls? How do we preserve intentionality in an ever-changing world? How do we navigate inevitable obstacles in our inherently intertwined personal and professional lives? At Creative Voyage, we provide the space to connect, to reflect, to learn, and to question. On this long and winding road, we’re here to provide the breadcrumbs and sometimes even the entire map. But most of all, we’re here to celebrate the journey.
When you enroll in our course on art direction or purchase our latest book, you aren’t just opting into an experience or acquiring an object. You are joining a global community. Our co-created organization exists thanks to a wide-ranging network of partners, collaborators, and supporters. Whether you find us on your preferred podcast app, at your favorite bookshop, or on the World Wide Web, our goal remains the same across mediums—to help you, the modern creator, level up and lead a fulfilling, empowered, and inspired life.
