Octavia Warren Gilmore, also known as The Millennial CEO, is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Creative Juice. Octavia was first introduced to graphic design at the young age of 14 and it has been her passion ever since. She attended the Savannah College of Art and Design where she obtained her BFA in graphic design. Freelancing throughout college, Octavia built up her client base, and took the leap of faith shortly after graduating, and launched Creative Juice at age 23. Starting out as a one-woman shop, Octavia quickly grew Creative Juice to a full team of creatives. While growing her business, Octavia observed the lack of diversity in the ownership structure of marketing agencies. Wanting to level the playing field, she strives to pave the way for other millennial, minority, and female-owned businesses. Her goals include growing Creative Juice to continue to create new job opportunities, mentoring youth in her community, and constantly seeking out leadership opportunities to increase her influence and impact. Octavia is a recent Power 30 Under 30 award recipient and also received the Emerging Alumna award from the Savannah College of Art and Design. When this Millennial CEO is not girl bossing or speaking at events, she is traveling the world, eating at local restaurants, listening to e-books, or spending time with friends and family.

“This internship has taught me how people work in this field. I’ve experienced everything from searching for clients to packaging gift boxes to show appreciation to our past clients. I’ve been able to get hands-on, one-on-one work with Adobe Illustrator, which I was foreign to before I got here, and they taught me how not to fear the unknown.”

“I want to thank the Creative Juice team for allowing me to be apart of this juicy team of creative ideas and talented people motivating me to push myself in my first internship. I might not have started off strong and seemed as if I wasn’t interested, but I began to gain a great understanding of how a business is run and how I should handle real world responsibilities. The projects I received from you all made me more open minded. I would like to thank Octavia, Ayanna, Saiydah, and Taylor for being such great people in my 6 weeks of working at Creative Juice”
