After our podcast ranked in the top 20 in multiple countries around the world, we knew we could turn it into a business. Wanna know how we did it?
We’re thrilled to have you here for today’s exclusive GrowGetters Club Open Day, featuring our special Open Day Masterclass. It’s an honour to introduce the brilliant co-founders of Tales of Tomorrow, Elvira Barriga and Christiane Patic.
In this episode, Elvira and Christiane will take us on a transformative journey to understand how we can replenish our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits. They’ll share invaluable insights on establishing practices that nourish and nurture ourselves.
Tales of Tomorrow is a design studio for conscious creativity with an academy for resilient creatives. Before embarking on this venture, Elvira and Christiane collectively spent 20 years helping leading organisations worldwide clarify their vision, develop brand identity, innovate products, and engage audiences through non-traditional exhibitions and interactive installations.
Their mission is to elevate purpose-driven trailblazers of today and tomorrow.

Elvira Barriga is the co-founder of Tales of Tomorrow, the Design Studio for Conscious Creativity, and a certified Transformation Coach and Leadership Trainer.
She brings over 20 years of experience as a Designer and Creative Director, helping organisations to shape, shift, and sharpen their brands from the inside out and innovate their products and experiences. She develops future-relevant strategies, identities, visual stories, and holistic brand experiences that dare to defy normed expectations and leave lasting impressions.
Elvira’s impressive career includes roles as the Creative Director at Local Projects NYC, Imprint Projects NYC, and Bruce Mao Design in Toronto. She led the redesign of the museum experience at Hyde Park Barracks Museum in Sydney, the Fashion for Good Center in Amsterdam, the Legacy Museum in Alabama, and the Environmental History Gallery at the National Museum of Australia, among others.
Elvira loves to work with aspirational thinkers and progressive makers on projects for the greater good, especially in art, education, social impact, and sustainability. She is most passionate about shaping unexpected creative processes, questioning the norm, and pushing for powerful concepts that enrich our environments with meaning, beauty, and surprise.
Christiane Patic is the Co-Founder and Creative Director at Tales of Tomorrow. Christiane’s innate wanderlust, passionate love for visual storytelling, and dedication to personal expansion have shaped her path across continents. She spent many years being an independent art director in Berlin and a digital nomad in South America and Asia, producing visual stories for a concept from concept to post-production with her photographer husband.
And you can see her great photographs. And here’s photography in some of the artwork we use for this session. Fascinated by Berlin’s vibrant art scene and the near-obsessive devotion of its movers and shakers, she has put her heart and craft into visual identities, campaigns, and books for numerous theatres and cultural changemakers.
She is driven by the desire to leave her daughter a more just and wholesome world. And with Tales of Tomorrow, she aims to elevate purpose.
