DESIGNS & FACILITATES
Mindflower Studio is a Phoenix-based creative thinking consultancy. We work with nonprofits, boards, leaders, and socially-driven organizations.
We are workshop facilitators and visual practitioners. We use visual thinking, creative problem solving, and design thinking to help your team solve problems the right way.
We empower your organization to be more nimble, strategic, empathetic, and of course, creative by challenging group assumptions/biases and bringing human-centered design thinking into the process.

Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest
“We recently hired Abby to facilitate and lead a half-day retreat with over 65 directors of 4 different boards (yes, you read that right). The experience was, in a word, smooth. Using more words, the experience had a great flow to it, capitalizing on both large group and small group dynamics, and never felt unwieldy or cold.
Abby truly listened to our needs and designed a process that was not only inclusive of all attendees, but also delivered a number of actionable and impactful ideas...”
