April Maglothin, Marketing, Branding, & Design
April runs Creative Coalition, which specializes in marketing, branding, and design. She assembles teams of creative professionals customized for each individual project. Growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, this daughter of an engineer and special ed teacher surprised her parents with her natural inclination toward creative expression. She moved to Nashville for college, majoring in art and landing a job with her alma mater doing graphic design and marketing. It was a perfect combination that melded her loves of art and business, beauty and strategy, form and function. After a successful decade in higher education, though, April was ready not only for new challenges to stretch her skills, but for the opportunity to lead in her field. She wanted to keep collaborating and to deepen the entrepreneurial roots that first sprouted in childhood.
“Freelancers are all over the place,” she said. “With Creative Coalition, we are giving people a freelance model in that they only hire us for what they need done now. Plus, our company offers more reliability as there’s no gap in coverage. We can flex our team to be as small or as large as any given project requires based on our network of connections. Our clients appreciate that a lot.”
