“There’s no such thing as a boring project, there’s only boring solutions.”


What’s good everyone! I’m AJ Voelpel, the Director of Content and Social at MUNICIPAL. I was born and raised in New York and graduated from Hofstra University during the “new media and social” boom in 2009. What that did was force me, a journalism major, to become a versatile and creative storyteller who had more than words in my arsenal. I had to become a pro in videography, photography, design, etc…and if it wasn’t for the vast network of people who showed me the ropes and believed in me, I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today.


While this mentorship won’t go into specifics on exactly how to create, it will provide guidance and resources on how you can maximize your creative potential and all the different opportunities you could pursue. Being as naturally opportunistic and relationship-driven as I am, I’ll try to open as many doors as possible for everyone who signs up. And with the my righthand (wo)man Ali by my side, we’ll get you all in a collaborative state of mind that’ll be key to your success as a creative.


Heyo! I’m Ali Woliver, the Director of Brand Design at MUNICIPAL. I graduated at the top of my class from the Art Institute of San Diego with a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. I wouldn’t be where I am today in my design career without mentors who have believed in me and gave me a chance when no one else would (shoutout Chris Velardo!) The biggest part of creativity and collaboration is feeling comfortable, being vulnerable, and most importantly, voicing ideas. That’s why I work so well with AJ. The two of us instantly connected when we first met years ago working at Callaway Golf with our energy and collaboration style. We continued our synergy over at MUNICIPAL and I can’t think of a better creative influence to bounce ideas off of. I think we work pretty damn well together and have achieved some amazing results… and I can’t wait to share insights on what has been our winning recipe of creative collaboration!


When I’m not tag teaming digital projects with AJ, or designing website wireframes – I side hustle digital freelance projects and also paint large scale canvases. Creativity is not only an outlet for me, but a pretty rad way to make a living. The cliché is true – love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life!
