See the real-world results that designers are getting from our programs: from raising their rates 5x, hitting $10k months, and more!

Emir Kudic


“Previously, I made around $3-4k per month, and through the program I increased my monthly income by an additional $2-3k monthly. I even ALMOST had a $10k month! The client paid two days later, so it wasn’t technically in one month, but it was still an amazing feeling.” - Emir Kudic

My entire business mindset has changed

I was able to apply everything I learned

“I was able to apply everything I learned in the course. Literally everything. There is nothing that I didn’t really need. The lessons are the perfect length: you can do them on your own pace, they aren’t long, and it’s easy to stay focused.”

Save Yourself Time!

Save yourself the time of reading 50 different business books! Just pay attention to this course and you will learn more. Aventive Academy talks about design as a business: specialized, concrete and very comprehensive.”
- Dynia Grille


I have built a small business

“I have built a small business that is my own and that allows me to provide a service I am passionate about. Aventive Academy’s program has given me an immense amount of confidence. Before I started I had never worked with contracts, I felt nervous to charge hardly anything, I felt overwhelmed by how to start, and I had no clear goals.

Now I have contracts, a business task organizer, financial systems in place, invoices created, an ideal client, organized branding, and clear-cut weekly and monthly goals. I finally feel confident in myself as a service provider!” - Morgan Pantoja

It was exactly what I needed

“Before discovering Aventive Academy, I felt like I hit a brick wall and was at a dead-end in my design career. It was like Kady read my mind and offered exactly what I needed to achieve future success for my graphic design business.
