About the Founder
The Asheville Creative League was founded by Anna Laman, an Asheville-based freelance writer and content coach. With the aim of partnering with other local creatives on client projects, Anna began compiling a list of Asheville designers and marketing professionals, and was amazed to discover such a wide and deep pool of local talent.
She also heard frustration from clients as they tried to pinpoint service providers for their projects, a conundrum she had experienced when spearheading marketing projects at previous jobs.
Anna launched the Asheville Creative League in early 2014 as a result of these efforts—to provide a resource to clients and an opportunity to creative professionals.
What We Do
The Asheville Creative League provides time-saving resources for clients, new opportunities for creative professionals, and a mechanism for keeping local money local.
Our goal is to be the one-stop resource for businesses and organizations that are looking for creative talent in Asheville. We invite businesses to submit projects, which we distribute to our diverse membership. We also maintain a time-saving directory of creative professionals to aid clients in the search for the right service provider.

We provide increased opportunity to Asheville's creative professionals by encouraging local businesses to hire local talent. Our members are invited to submit proposals to client projects and enjoy increased community visibility through the Leagues' outreach efforts.

The League encourages businesses to take advantage of the incredible talent Asheville has to offer by contracting locally whenever possible.
