We had the good fortune of connecting with Marcie McGovern and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marcie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the most important factor are the people who I work with that help me every day. They are some of the most hard working individuals. In addition, it’s their integrity and honesty that helps me guide ANGELEI™ towards the success we have had. We, as a company, care very much about our planet (we have a very low carbon footprint); care about the quality of out product (s) (we have top quality control) and care about our kids (we have partner charities that mainly focus on children and pediatric cancer.

In addition, I am very proud to have such an incredibly diverse team with many backgrounds. We treat each other with the utmost respect and truly love what we do. The success of the company has been a true team effort!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am very proud to have graduated from Indiana University with degrees in Design and Film. Minor in Business. Early on I worked with some of the top Advertising Agencies in Chicago and then went on to run my own Company for over 15 years. I have worked with some of the very best in Design and received one of the Top Graphic Designer awards for a piece I designed with a top magazine.

With over 20 Industry awards under my belt, I am very proud to have been able to turn the love of the arts into a business. I love teaming up with new artists on collaborations, as they bring so many amazing ideas to the table. Their beautiful and varying talents are so inspiring and truly show what collaboration can become with the right partners! I am inspired every day by artists, whether in the field of Music, Dance or the Arts as I know what it entails to create masterpieces! That’s why I absolutely seek these types of collaborations out for ANGELEI™. The dedication and endless hours of work…it’s a proud moment to create something beautiful!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are many amazing things to do in LA. But I think the most awe-inspiring is the beauty that is found in nature. There is so much that we draw from because there is so much to inspire us. It’s the beauty of the colors from a sunset or the varying shades of green when you hike deep into Malibu. I do love the 70’s vibe in Topanga Canyon and absolutely love shopping on Melrose! I love anything DIFFERENT! That’s what we pride ourselves on at ANGELEI™…the thrill of creating something beautiful and different!
