Find the Strategy You Need...


If you're a creative wanting to make the most of your creativity, and build a business you love that's ready for the times we are in, YOU are the reason I get up in the morning.  Now more than ever...

So what does that actually mean?  To really thrive, deep down where it matters most?

Our English word thrive comes from an old Norse word meaning to grasp for one's self.  

You see, you and your creative business will never get to the place of truly thriving simply through cut-and-paste, mad-lib style, collaging pieces of pretty strategy that seem to work from your 3 favorite thought leaders.  Tru-uh-st me on that one.

I started Designed to Thrive Creative after completely losing my previous business to a traumatic brain injury and wrist injury from a car accident.  I decided if I was going to start again it would have to be something I loved more, with more purpose than what I had lost.  And I was absolutely not settling for cut-and-paste strategy.  Period.

So here we are friend.  I am 5000% committed to seeing you succeed and build a creative business you love that thrives from the inside out.

In case we haven't met, I'm Michele, a Flodesk & communications expert, content strategist,  & creative director for creative entrepreneurs with 30+ years of communications & leadership experience. 

 I help creatives nurture their creativity, nail their strategy & build brands that thrive from the inside out.  I'm also an award-winning designer & abstract artist.

When I sought out a branding guru, I had no idea the depth of remarkable I would get with Michele Perry. Her empathy, compassion, and genuine & honest approach has helped merge my expertise and my heart to create something that serves my clients AND fills my soul. It’s like she can see inside my head and my heart and pull out the pieces that I can quite recognize yet, or have maybe never dared to pursue... I can’t believe this is the woman I get to work with. I am so grateful.   


What Some of My
Clients Are Saying...

Michele is beyond amazing at this. She has taken my ideas, scratched onto various pieces of paper, and created a truly magnificent visual strategy. It was like she understood me and my vision even better than I did!! Thank you, Michele, for making my dream of many years come true. You are one outstanding woman.   


I am completely awed by what Michele put together. She was a dream to work with and helped to refine my brand as we talked about logo ideas and my interests. Michele created a logo that perfectly describes my business... If you’re looking for someone who puts together design projects that draw raves from others, Michele is definitely the way to go!
