EK Morgan By Design

Edward Morgan grew up in a family of artists. His father was a jazz musician. His grandfather had a knack for working with wood pieces. So it was only natural for Morgan to transform his early love for art and design into a business.

Morgan started more than twenty years ago designing t-shirts and hats for friends and acquaintances. His clients have since expanded to include prominent rap and recording artists. One of Morgan’s fondest memories is doing a portrait of Jay-Z and meeting the recording artist in person. Through his business, Morgan has been able to use his passion and talent for design and development to help clients bring their concepts to life. The best part of his job, he says, is the reaction on a client’s face upon first seeing the designs he has created for them.

Last summer, Morgan took an Entrepreneur Works business skills course in order to strengthen his ideas about what direction to take his business: “Entrepreneur Works is invaluable to any entrepreneur that is up-and-coming,” he says. In the near future, he hopes to take his work to a bigger audience. Despite the fact that the challenges for entrepreneurs are never-ending, ultimately, says Morgan, “it’s the challenges that teach you what you want to be.”

Morgan advises new entrepreneurs to be aware of the areas where they are strong, where they are weak, and to have a “crew” to help in the weak areas. But the best way to succeed, says Morgan, is not to have a plan B--you have to make it your life’s work. For Morgan, “art is my passion, my mission, and my life.”
