Thinking “outside the box”
Skillfully executing abstract ideas
Can be insensitive or arrogant
To create things of lasting value
To continually enhance their skill
To fully express themselves
Being seen as a sellout
Not being able to execute a vision
If you can imagine it, you can do it.

Creator Brand Archetype
The Creator is one of my favorite Brand Archetypes because it’s my primary Brand Archetype. So I’m just a little bit biased.
But here’s the cool thing: pretty much every, single entrepreneur that has ever existed has at least a little bit of the Creator somewhere in them. You have to be a creative thinker to be an entrepreneur. There’s no way around it.
Paul Jarvis // Online Course Creator
Paul is my favorite example of the Creator for one reason – simplicity.
I love the simplicity of his brand. Everything from his marketing strategies to his website design are incredibly simple and incredibly clear. His homepage says “I help people build better (not bigger) businesses.” And he embodies that mission in every piece of content he creates.
Oh, and he’s KILLING IT with his “Sunday Dispatches” newsletter. It has fantastic content and I look forward to it every week.
Flik is the ultimate Creator. Honestly, he’s an entrepreneurial genius. His inventions are pretty sweet, and he never gives up! Even when all the other ants think he’s crazy, he saves them from the evil Hopper and his gang of jerks.
Syndrome / Buddy Pine
Syndrome represents the dark side of the Creator Archetype. He’s obsessive and arrogant, but he’s incredibly smart and his inventions are pretty amazing. Creator villians are usually the hardest ones to defeat!
Before Robert Pattinson went all sparkly-emo, he was Cedric Diggory in HP. Cedric was highly skilled and a natural leader, making him a perfect Creator. But then he got murdered. Ugh.
Voldemort / Tom Riddle
Gah, isn’t he such a good villain?! I mean, he’s just so terrible, but he’s so smart, right? My personal fav is the Chamber of Secrets when he uses a book to wreak all kinds of havoc. He really is the BEST Creator villain.
Daredevil / Matt Murdock
Matt’s powers are truly incredible. He went blind in an accident as a kid, but since then, he has continued to develop enhanced control and skill to express himself (and kick ass) with his other 4 senses.
Mystique is a mutant / supervillian / assassin / shapeshifter / Creator Archetype. She’s highly skilled at mimicking others, both in appearance and voice, which she uses to her advantage.
Sam could easily have been a Sage, but not today! His Creator side is often overlooked. He’s a highly intelligent, outside-the-box thinker that saves the day on more than one occasion with his creative thinking.
Yikes. Remember I said that Creators usually make the worst villains (best villains?) and Joffrey is no exception. This guy is just pure evil. But it does takes some serious creativity and imagination to come up with the shit he pulls.
My favorite part…Music
Rock n roll, baby
Words As Weapons // Seether
“All I really want is something beautiful to say.” That pretty much sums up the Creator mentality. We (I’m a creator!) have a strong internal drive to express and create on our own terms.
The Devil Went Down to Georgia // Charlie Daniels Band
I mean, how confident must you be in your craft to challenge the actual devil…? But good thing Johnny’s a Creator because he is the best there’s ever been.
Applause // Lady Gaga
One of the flaws of a Creator is the tendency to be a bit of a prima-donna. But hey, at least we have the skill to back it up!
My favorite Creator song
Live Loud // Eye Empire
If you don’t know me yet, you should know I’m a bit of a music snob. And I’m really proud of it.
Sure, I can appreciate the occasional pop-y song for fun, but my heart lies with the true musicians who write and play their own music.
So it’s only fitting that this is my favorite song for the Creator Brand Archetype.
I absolutely love this song.
It embodies all of the positive and negative aspects that the Creator lives with day-to-day.
Instagram profiles the Creator will love to follow
You never know what’s gonna’ show up in this section
It could be a picture, a person, a gif, a video, a meme, or something else.
It’s a surprise for each Brand Archetype!
SAMANTHA JAMES // JUST FRIENDS
Okay, this is totally a joke. #duh
But I am in love with this movie. I watch it approximately 186 times every year. And this clip is my favorite.
Hi! Hi! Hi!
I’m Brooke Lawson
I work with service-based entrepreneurs, who are tired of having cookie-cutter, “me-too” businesses that look and sound exactly like every else, and I help them to instead create a highly profitable brand that reflects their true personality and attracts their ideal clients like a freakin’ magnet.
But I’m not just a Brand Strategist, I’ve always been a creative at heart and I refuse to give it up. That means my VIP packages also include done-for-you design assets, too! As a one-on-one client, you also get:
a custom logo design
a beautiful WordPress website
social media graphics and templates
And here’s the best part… not only will it look DAMN GOOD, but since I’ll know your brand inside and out after working together, all of those materials are 100% representative of YOUR brand, YOUR goals, and YOUR personality. Pretty cool, right?
But here’s the thing…
