President and Founder, Terrance Price started his career as an art director in the advertising industry in New York. Throughout his journey, Terrance realized that he had developed a passion for building brands and cultivating creative people. He also noticed there were times when creatives, like himself, were undervalued and underappreciated. When he branched out on his own and started freelancing, he realized how much he could accomplish by just having the right connections. Terrance was able to launch a variety of brand campaigns for a fraction of the normal industry costs. It was after his experience independently launching brands where Terrance had an industry-altering "ah ha" moment. He came up with a concept that was derived from industry knowledge and passion.
The big idea: bring creatives and small businesses together in a space where they could feel confident and appreciated, learn from each other, and build a network that may not normally be afforded to them through traditional career paths. After years of roadblocks, planning, and relocating from New York to Texas, Makers Gym was born!
