We had the good fortune of connecting with Ariana Fathivand and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ariana, how do you think about risk?

My dream company, Creative Concepts Agency, was built on risks. Making the transition from my previous job to launch my own business is the biggest risk I have taken to this day. I have always been driven, and committed to bringing my ideas to life, and through Creative Concepts I’m able to do this each and every day. I believed in the idea of this company, and its mission so much that nothing was going to hold me back from creating it. I have taken tremendous risks since day one. My wonderful team and clients are the core of what we create. My company’s mission is to aid businesses and individuals in the marketing of their brands, while delivering modern content through creativity. As a business owner who is growing and adapting 24/7, I’ve learned to analyze each movement and detail that I create and I know that it all takes risks. Whether it’s a small risk or a larger financial risk, focusing on what is best for the client and yourself must be at the forefront of your work. Bringing Creative Concepts into this world was a risk I knew I had to take years ago, and I am overjoyed by the content and community my team and I have built. Each morning I’m reminded that actions must be fueled by hours and hours of dedication. Risks can be terrifying, but who doesn’t love a thrill.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The Creative Concepts Agency is a full service marketing agency based in Houston, Texas, that caters to any and all brands around the nation. It’s no secret that the future is digital and social media is booming. There are social media managers everywhere, and I strive to create a supportive community where we can all learn from each other. This agency goes further than just your average marketing services, we compile the best creations to inspire others. Getting businesses to see the value of social media marketing is still a work in progress, but it is my passion. Good results don’t come overnight, and trust plays such a pivotal role in our work. My team and I overcome these challenges by delivering what is promised, while exceeding ours and the clients goals. What separates The Creative Concepts Agency from other agencies is that we become a very close knit part of your company, so much that it feels like we are an in-house department in that company. I cherish the ideals of communication, transparency, and relationships immensely. It is vital to the company’s mission that our clients play a role in the design process, that their ideas are heard and understood, and that we deliver the best of the best. I believe that fully immersing ourselves into a brand is the only way to create true, modern, and memorable marketing.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There are so many fun things to do in Houston. I would start everyday with some delicious brunch and there are tons of yummy places in the city. My current top restaurants are Coppa Osteria, Joey Uptown, Postino Wine Cafe, Bloom & Bee, and Caracol for brunching. I love to spend my free days shopping at River Oaks District, Highland Village, Rice Village, City Center and the mall so, we would definitely be hitting up the best Houston shopping. The museums & parks are my favorite places to go spend the day relaxing or getting creative. Dinners are definitely spent at The Four Seasons Hotel, Mastros, Nobu, and my favorite place ever called Musaafer. After that, nights are spent drinking some of Houston’s best cocktails at places like Uptown sushi, H bar, Fig & Olive and Secret Garden.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Mentorship has played a huge role in my life, and I value all the lessons and wise words that have been shared with me since the beginning. The first shoutout goes to my parents. They constantly guide me with love and support, and because of their hard work I have learned what it means to chase after my dreams. The Design Firm is a group who has also impacted me in the journey to creating my company. The skills and connections I have built because of my first big girl job here provided me with a glimpse into a career path I knew I strived for. The Design Firm is where I truly blossomed into the working adult I am today. The support, knowledge, and inspiring words that my parents and The Design Firm have blessed me with is something that I will carry with me always. Mentorship is crucial to growth, and I hope to inspire young men and women to believe in their dreams like my mentors have done for me.
