A thriving concern is a tenacious idea. A Thriving Concern is hard work and surprise, struggle and celebration. It’s hugging your failures. It’s steeped in trust and fermented in sweat. A thriving concern is selling Atomic Fireballs out of your middle school locker, or turning grandma’s meatball recipe into a full-blown restaurant. A Thriving Concern is trust-falling into the void. It is stubborn independence, finally paying off. This Thriving Concern is a design studio, owned and operated by a determined designer with a mildly contagious educational infection.
“This is the design class I never had the chance to take. It’s impacted me paramountly, even outside of art; raising questions like ‘what is art?’ and ‘what is this place that we are creating from?”
– Schoolhaus / A4 student
“After working with Dan Ibarra of Thriving Concern for over 2 years, we have seen major results in response to our brand. We were in need of an uplift and a new, fresh look. Not only is he professional and an extremely talented artist, he takes the time to get to know you and your company in a way that reflects how you want to be represented. We receive compliments all the time on the design work from our logos, to product labels and merchandise to the overall feeling communicated with our brand. ”
