Distinctly Creative was opened in September in a 1947 three-story brick building, which is situated at 3510 Rhode Island Ave., Mount Rainier. The building is currently under renovation by Daniel Simon, owner of Hyattsville’s Palmer Building, where you have Vigilante Coffee and other prominent businesses.
The owner/founder of Distinctly Creative, Morgan Davis, is a business strategist, graphic, and fashion designer. She has worked with Google’s AdWords team and assisted big corporations such as George Mason University, the University of Maryland, and the National Trust of Historic Preservation to handle their branding and creative tasks. She founded Distinctly Creative in 2016, aside from offering branding and creative service, she also give coaching and advice to entrepreneurs and other business owners.
According to Davis, the new creative space will be a hub where black entrepreneurs can network, hold seminars, exhibitions, and also sell their goods.
The space will also have a coworking center, called Goldn Roots, where black entrepreneurs in the creative line can meet with clients and work outside their house/dorm. It has a ‘marketplace’ which consists of fifteen black-owned brands, mostly from the fashion, skin and hair care, home goods, and visual arts sectors. She already has her line of apparel in the marketplace called “Black Creatives Matter.”
Davis Morgan moved from Michigan to D.C. when she got admission into Howard University. She recently relocated from Hyattsville to College Park.
Distinctly Creative is the first creative space in Mount Rainer, and it’s akin to other coworking and events places like Five Points Business Center in Woodridge, CAMPSpaces, and Dream Village in Hyattsville.
The new creative space will be opened on Thursdays through Sundays from 2 to 7 pm.
