Joanna Holden

FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR, MODULAR, INK.

My passion is branding new or existing businesses, art directing photo and video shoots and becoming the go-to creative shop for businesses. I have a lot to offer and love working as a team on product or service brands. I have a fine art background and that coupled with my design mind, I have the capabilities to build a brand and literally implement it across all mediums, print, digital and video.

What inspired you to start your business?

I love people and didn't want to be in the background, I wanted to work with the client. I also love the flexibility since I am a creative. My mind is a very unstructured mind and so if I need to find inspiration somewhere besides my studio, I go find it.

My family, my wife and two boys are my inspiration and motivation. I want to give them a good life.

What is something you would say to someone who is struggling in their first few years of business? Is there something you struggled with and learned from in those first few years?

Listen to your instinct, it is all that matters and is probably why you started your own business. Try to get out of the fear mentality and reach out for help.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

Music, my boys, supporting and seeing my friends. Design and art...if I see good design and art everyday, I am at peace.
