My clients come from many different backgrounds and come to me initially for various needs. But one comment I keep hearing over and over is that they are surprised that I can help them in so many areas: “You know how to do this—and THAT too?”

I come from a background as a freelance art director/creative director, corporate trainer, and design teacher. I have experience in marketing, publishing, interactive (UI, UX, etc.) design, visual or graphic design, programming, teaching, corporate training, instructional design (e-learning), game design, video and motion graphic production.


I worked with Aliyah recently on career development. She’s a very collaborative, spontaneous, and thoughtful coach. She lets me see aspects of myself I wasn’t paying attention to and helps me develop tools to point me in the right direction. I highly recommend working with her if you’re a creative who may be unsure about how to best harness your potential.

Aliyah helped a dream come true for me–– we worked together to launch my first book! I am so grateful for her expertise and commitment to her work. She listens carefully while advising to ensure the best outcome and she stays focused to help reach deadlines. Thank you, Aliyah.

Kyra Oliver—Author, Entrepreneur, Founder/CEO

I can’t say enough good things about working Aliyah Marr, she is inspirational, keeps me on track, has sound advice and is very knowledgeable in many aspects of the creative fields. We work as a team and she gets to know your goals and stumbling blocks and works around them to help you make things happen for yourself in innovative ways.

For the project I am working on, she was the right person and the right time, and I will hire her again as she is very easy to work with, is trustworthy and reliable and you get a lot of bang for your buck. I highly recommend her without reservation if you’re feeling stuck or need a coach for your life goals or some particular project.

Cheryl Roshak, CPC, Transition and Career Coach

Since working with Aliyah, I have been hugely impressed with her extraordinary ability to innovatively create new channels of business thinking and out of the box approaches to radical and challenging ideas for enterprise. She has a warm and engaging temperament and a persistence to meet the orthodox head-on and root out those conscious and subconscious barriers which disrupt the flow of successful implementation of business and personal goals. Aliyah is a marvelous creativity coach. Before you know it, her subtle interventions will facilitate your ability to wake up in the morning newly inspired – having worked out for yourself why it was going wrong and what way to put it right.

Roy Baldwin, Women’s Fiction Author, Publisher and Director of Creative Gateway

Aliyah has extra-ordinary intuitive insight and years of hands-on experience in the field of solution-oriented life coaching and brings her entire background of sophistication and knowledge from a-z high tech per the internet-marketing a-z to her profound research in the magic of getting what you want and from here to there…

Darrell Bell, Transportation Specialist

Aliyah is a great teacher who has awakened strengths that have been dormant in me. My views on life have changed since working with her. Honestly, I was unsure what to do with my life or what direction to go. I felt lost and was looking for understanding and my truth on this planet. She listened and together we created my pathways for success and helped me understand that I have it in me to create whatever I want. Her gift for developing individuals who seek truth and understanding can benefit from her wisdom. I can assure you she has no intentions to steer anyone in a bad direction. She is here to improve your direction in life and self-awareness. Her innovation has helped me to develop my vision for developing a system for a healthier sustainable living. My research in creating green sustainable communities or life support system will greatly benefit the planet and humanity.

Aliyah has been a great mentor and asset to my life and my purpose to help for the greater good. She has organized and restructured my philosophy for helping our planet and human family. I wish more people would only listen to what she has to say about helping you achieve your creative path to success. It is The Art of Creativity!

Susan Riehle, CEO Studio Productions, Motivational Speaker

Aliyah was a wonderful speaker at our business networking event. Attendees gave her rave reviews.

Christy Johnson, Event Manager Festival City

Aliyah is a very creative and talented professional that is a joy to work with. During the time that I worked with her she was ready to take on responsibility and she delivered results with excellence under last minute pressure. I was impressed with her ability to quickly learn a new technology and share that knowledge with others. She is a class act and an accomplished writer as well.

Russell Youngblood, Solution Architect at OutSystems

Aliyah Marr is wonderful to work with. Her original, idiosyncratic work consistently gets a positive response from Graphics.com/Learning users. She has become a favorite of our subscribers! Aliyah’s enthusiasm and cooperative nature make her a joy to work with.

Benjamin Kessler, Outreach Officer, George Mason University School of Business

The very first time I met Aliyah was at the ASR show in San Diego when she visited our booth. She was very passionate and had some great ideas to help us promote our fledgling company, 9:Fish Surfboards. Within a month or so, she had negotiated a TV advertising deal for us at her employer, Planet X, that put our products in front of target customers and at the same time truly strengthened our brand image. The deal worked well for our company and we really owe it all to her. Not only that, but she continued to promote 9:Fish outside of the advertising deal by talking to local surfboard shops that she frequented, urging them to take a chance on our new surfboard brand. Thanks to Aliyah’s tenacity and energetic evangelism, we landed a deal with a very important retailer. She says she did it because she believed in our company; we’re just glad she did it. I highly recommend Aliyah because of her creativity, salesmanship and incredible energy. She’s a great pleasure to work with and no one can resist her for long because she never gives up, no matter what!

Wesley Negus, Global Account Manager at Amazon Web Services

Aliyah is a driven, talented, brilliant designer who will not rest until she can fulfill her vision. Her work ethic goes above and beyond the call of duty, and she is single minded in her pursuit of perfectionism in her own work. Aliyah is committed to challenging herself on a daily basis and this shows in her fresh, bold ideas and outlook when it comes to the creative.

Sharon Fleischmann, Faculty Member at School of Visual Arts

Aliyah is highly creative, imaginative and artistically gifted. I have had the good fortune to have known her on her spiritual and life journey of transformation for many years now as well as recently contracting her to build my website for Lotus Light Healing. Aliyah is a powerful example of one who through life experience and creative vision is able to lead others as a transformative coach and succeed as a multi-media web designer, author, teacher, personal trainer, and motivational speaker.

Linnie Ann Velasquez, Real Estate Projects

I find Aliyah to have a very original mind. She thinks outside of the box. She is particularly great at concept, but also very proficient and efficient in her technical executions. Her Flash work I found particularly cutting edge and engaging. Was very wowed by her website. Highly recommended.

Baker Vail, Owner, Small World Maps, LLC

Amazing talent and super easy to work with

Don Durban, CEO / Exec Producer at POV, Planet X Media Brands

Creative Director/Brand Evangelist is an understatement. If Aliyah is excited about what you are working on, check every link she sends you.

Bryant Stratton, CEO Bluprint

Aliyah was always happy to go the extra mile in helping us deliver Adobe training in San Diego. Super-easy to work with – thanks!

Stephen Fraga, Owner, Academy X

Aliyah helped me brand and re-create my website to make it search engine optimized. She’s an amazing source of creative ideas, she knows how to communicate what I specialize in, in the most effective manner to my target audience. She helped me figure out who my target audience is, and determine what words could be used to reach them (SEO).

She’s an amazingly effective consultant/advisor for branding, communication and design. Within an hour after Aliyah updated my website, I received a call from a prospect who found me from the keywords Aliyah had just inserted into my website. Not only had the new and improved website already sold her on booking her initial session, but she quickly became a long-term client. This 1 client paid completely my expenses for Aliyah’s services.

Thank you so much Aliyah – I recommend your branding and communication expertise to everyone.
