Entrepreneur, Author, Phenom
Angela, a pure entrepreneur at heart, has founded The Thirsty Creative Group, FindUniquelyU.com and Phenom Publishing. All of her projects are rooted in the foundation of creativity and collaboration.
Prior to entrepreneurship, Angela spent her formative years working at some amazing advertising agencies in NYC, including Draft Worldwide, Digitas, and RAPP, the design firm C3, Inc., DiMassimo Brand Advertising, and Saatchi & Saatchi X. Over many late nights, Angela helped in creating on-brand, effective work across all mediums for American Express, Verizon, Merck-Medco, AOL, Real Simple Magazine, Virgin Mobile USA, The New York Times, The Plaza Hotel and Mercedes-Benz, gaining invaluable experience working on these huge national brands.
It was with a desire to work directly with clients as partners, an intuitive knack for solving strategic and visual challenges, and the passion to help small businesses grow that Angela left the world of big agencies and began collaborating with like-minded creative entrepreneurs. In 2010, Angela laid the foundation for The Thirsty Creative Group, a unique agency platform that is equal parts traditional freelance and white-labeled creative services. Angela has sat as the Executive Creative Director for small agencies with big clients and has led diverse teams and vendor partners in building meaningful brand experiences for customers. She has created beautiful brand identities and designed successful marketing initiatives for inspiring clients such as Scholastic, Medpod, Nikon, Performance Physical Therapy, HarborOne Bank, Helen Keller International and Canon.
In 2017, Angela went client-side and joined Visiontron, a manufacturer of crowd control products, as their first in-house Director of Branding & General Marketing. She rebranded the nearly 60-year-old company, created their massive website showcasing over 200 products, and has led her team in implementing a robust marketing strategy.
The pandemic though has led her to get back to her passion of wanting to help “the little guy” by making corporate-level guidance accessible to those who long to reinvent themselves. The original intention was to become a brand coach. But Angela soon realized that there are so many people who offer this type of assistance, and so many people who may not know such services exist. As such, FindUniquelyU.com was born.
In November 2022, with co-collaborator Dana Sardano, Angela co-founded Phenom Publishing. She received her BA in Visual Communications at SUNY Farmingdale and has since been creating compelling commercial art for clients in the marketing/advertising industry. As Phenom Publishing’s Chief Creative Officer, Angela collaborates with Phenom’s authors to create a design for their books that expresses the promise and premise of the experience the reader will have between the covers.
