Creative Babes was brought into existence one night over Manhattans at a killer little bar in Columbus, Ohio. Hilary had just done some branding for Megan Leigh, and the two were out gabbing about it all. Soon the conversation turned into a gush fest over all of the amazing, creative women in the city.
The two really wanted to find a way to bring all of these women together in one room in a noncompetitive, really rad environment. A place where business cards just didn’t matter, and all ideas were respected and heard. Where you’d bring your own whiskey for a Make Your Own Manhattan Bar. So yeah, they spent that evening highfiving and planning an event that they would want to attend. Creative Babes was born a month later in August of 2014.
