Why We Do It – We’re Familiar with Bootstrapping

At Creative DSM, we came from the startup business culture. In fact, we thrive on creating innovative strategies to maintain a budget while virally growing. Andi has successfully helped manage the launch of 7 fashion brands in Los Angeles, Miami and even Des Moines, Iowa. From creative concept to production, she has been engrained in small businesses since her time at Iowa State University in 2005.

How We Do It – We’re Pros at Organic Scaling

We work with our clients through the inevitable growing pains of expanding.  Besides the fashion world, Andi spent 6 years helping grow a small consumer technology e-commerce brand; which resulted in a $75M+ acquisition in 2018. During this time she expanded her digital skill set to email marketing, e-commerce analytics, and web development.  Creative DSM specializes in Shopify, WordPress, Etsy and Amazon.
