Spark is a group of independent graphic design business owners who meet to enlighten each other on the business and creative issues that are relevant to design studios. Members come to share their experiences, knowledge, and inspire each other. Spark is a valuable support system for anyone who strives for excellence in business and design practices.
Spark Design Professionals was founded in 2002 by Rebecca Brian, Marc S Levitt and Sheri L Koetting of MSLK, and Julia Reich — a group of designers who saw a need in the design community for a place to learn how to run an effective design business and share their experiences.
From its inception, Spark has focused on providing access to knowledge and tools to its members to help them improve and grow their own businesses. Every month since then, Spark has focused on providing access to knowledge and tools to its members to help them improve and grow their own businesses. Since then, Spark has flourished into a nationwide 501(c)(6) not-for-profit that strives to fulfill its mission of enlightening design business owners.
What we do
Spark hosts monthly events in which we ask business consultants, our peers, and other inspiring professionals to speak about issues that are relevant to small design studios. In addition, Spark facilitates in-person and online networking and hosts special conference roundtables, workshops and panels on design business practices.
