Hey there!

I’m Kady Sandel,

the founder of Aventive Academy.

I believe that every graphic design business can be a successful business owner, and we want to give you the actionable steps to get there.

I started as a one-woman freelance graphic designer, and from there I built a lucrative branding business that allowed me to take on amazing projects, collaborate with clients around the world, and work from anywhere.

Here at Aventive Academy, we know what it’s like to scramble for design clients, exhaust yourself, juggle your 9-5 with your dreams, doubt your worth, and barely make any money.

We’re here to help you to build a profitable graphic, brand, or web design business, drop the stress, maintain a constant flow of clients and projects you love – and have fun along the way! And we use proven strategies that work.

Learn with us!

Whether you’re just starting your graphic, brand, or web design business, or you have the foundation but aren’t seeing the growth you are looking for – our learning platform Aventive Academy will help you!

We will teach you how to grow your professional career, attract high-quality clients, and create the income and lifestyle you desire. Our online courses, videos, ebooks, templates, and educational resources are everything you need to start and expand your design business.

We bring connection, collaboration & education to graphic designers around the world.
