Creative Woman: Meet Ari Krzyzek


Meet Ari Krzyzek

Our very FIRST FCM Member Spotlight!

Ari is the Co-founder & Creative Director of Chykalophia (read: see-ka-lo-fia), where she implements powerful branding strategies to provide distinctive designs for maximum impact through the web, mobile and/or print. Additionally, she founded and hosts Creative Women’s Co., serving as a design consultant, mentor and professional peer in support of fellow female entrepreneurs.

We asked Ari a few questions…

What is your “Why?” and what keeps you motivated?
Lifting other fellow entrepreneurs and business owners through our skills and help them succeed. It gives me joy seeing their business flourish and growing together with them as partners.

What advice would you have given yourself five years ago?
Find a mentor asap (be it in a program or other learning materials, just learn more than your craft).

Where do you see your career/business in the next 5 years?
Expanding my business to my home country (Indonesia).

What re you looking to accomplish in the next few months and how can we help you get there?
I am looking for two companies who are looking for help to take their brand to the next level through a strong brand identity and strategy online and offline. Also looking for seven entrepreneurs who are interested in joining us at our Brand Lab workshop for their business brand.

oh!  And INCYMI
