Artboy Designs is a start-up sole proprietorship owned and operated by Jon. The company was referred to Accion Texas Inc. by Keith Frazier, one of the organization’s board members.
Artboy is a “green” interior design business in Houston that focuses primarily on high-end commercial and residential clients. The business is promoted through its website, advertising booklets, and beautiful business cards. A $5,450 loan helped Jon pay for his marketing materials.
He has 10 years of experience in the industry, which helped him establish a broad network of past clients in the Houston area. As his business becomes more established, Jon plans to hire employees. But for now, he is a “one-man show” – with high hopes of success. For more information on Artboy Designs, visit http://www.artboydesigns.com/.
