What it took to THRIVE.

Marshall started off with his creative thinking back in high school, he designed the high school, leadership and, senior shirts, and many other designs within the school. 

 

After high school, he started in woodworking, moved to fish camp California right outside Yosemite and started building decks for homes and found his passion for woodworking, which eventually turned into manufacturing skateboards when he moved back to Oklahoma. Once we perfected skateboards. He started a company called BC Longboards, and in just three short years of manufacturing skateboards we were voted 11th best in the nation. We started manufacturing boards for other companies, and ultimately teamed up with Stalkit and started manufacturing snowboards, skis and surfboards as well. 

 

As we all know, the board business is a trend some Marshall needed some thing more consistent. He started branding himself as MDC Designs in 2013. Which turned out to be very successful for five solid years. In 2017 we re-branded MDC Designs to THRIVEN Creative. That's the goal, get you or your business thriving!

 

THRIVEN has now been going strong for eight years. We have branded over 290 companies world wide. 

 

I started off in the skate world then evolved into the surf and snow, so my work definitely has a reflection of that industry. If you're looking for something unique. You found me. 

 

So with my background why not turn THRIVEN into an apparel company as well that’s our goal. Our apparel is just a reminder to always thrive at what you do!

CORNBOARD  CBMI   |   Cornboard.com

STALKIT IS A SUBSIDIARY OF CORNBOARD
Cornboard Manufacturing Inc. is an agricultural company that produces a particle-style board from leftover corn stover after farmers harvest. It is a natural waste that is used as a filler in cattle feed. The goal is to produce a strong, renewable and sustainable product with limitless possibilities.

SURF. SKATE. SNOW.

I started building boards for Stalkit while I owned BClongboards. Following the close of BC's doors, I teamed up with Stalkit. Stalkit's goal of building boards manufactured with a renewable, bio-mass residue called Corn Stover interested me and I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. I managed Stalkit's social media, maintained  their web and graphic design, worked as the shop foreman, running all board and product development, design and manufacturing, as well as coordinating events.

BCLONGBOARDS BEGAN 2008

Marshall Cooper and Brandon Bryant founded Bryant Cooper Longboards LLC in 2007. From building our first boards in our garage, to opening up shop in a 4600 sq. ft. building within a year and a half. Manufacturing 12 to 18 boards a day, offering custom graphics for free, BCLongboards hit just shy of 1 million in sales in three years with just two of the hardest working dudes you'll ever know.

MDC DESIGNS

OWNING MY OWN GRAPHIC DESIGN COMPANY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DREAM OF MINE

Even as a child I was sketching logos. Many times as kids we are asked, "What do you wanna be when you grow up?"  The dream of MDC Designs began in my early high school days. I have always had a 'work hard' mentality and thrive to do just that no matter the obstacle. I Obviously loved to draw, to broke to buy a computer.. barely enough money to pay for a phone, but I knew I wanted to be creative and help brand companies or possibly build my own and somehow that evolved into designing, building and creating custom skateboards for BClongboards that was founded by Marshall D Cooper and Brandon Bryant in early 2007.

2001-2003

YOSEMITE, CALIFORNIA.

GRADUATE AND LEFT THE STATE. THATS WHERE I FELL IN LOVE WITH WOOD WORKING.

After High School I moved to Fish Camp California and bunked up with my Uncle Roddy Rutledge. We lived in a log cabin built in 1889. No A/C, No Heater, tiny rooms, mini fridge, it was amazing. Taught me some much, taught me how to enjoy life no matter where you are or what you have. "You are special to everyone else" anyways, I found a job building decks with a great man named Terry Booker. He was awesome! We did bible studies after work, he taught me about boxing and Weight Lifting. Shared so much history with me. RIP Buddy. After a while I came home. I was ready to take on my next adventure.
