This is Convo By Design with designer, Trip Haenisch. Haenisch is known for his comfortable, collected and easy-going style. He has earned a reputation for his incredible talent and the celebrity clientele that followed. Trip has a new book out called Personal Space and it features his elegant Hollywood style juxtaposed against comfortable California living. These two would appear to be in direct conflict. Actually, it is all in the presentation, a skill Haenisch has mastered.

You are going to hear Trip talk about his career path and the trajectory from just starting out to the fame that follows success in a creative endeavor like interior design. He’s comfortable now with the fame but prefers the work because it is the source of creative satisfaction and happiness. You are also going to hear a very candid conversation about client relations, interaction and meaningful engagement. You are also going to hear some very personal insights about creativity, wanting to please others and ultimately, being happy with yourself and your work.

I enjoyed this chat immensely with Trip and I hope you do as well. Before we get into it, I want to thank you for listening and invite you to join in the conversation. You can find us @ConvoByDesign on twitter and @ConvoXDesign with an ‘X” on Facebook and Instagram. You can also find videos from these conversations on our YouTube channel, again search Convo By Design and you will find over 140 videos from some of your favorite guests.

This is Convo By Design with a chat about design and traffic. What do these two things have to do with each other? Everything. I think it is safe to say that we are in the midst of an industrial revolution of sorts. I think one might not always notice the changes going on around them until those changes significantly affect their own lives. If you live in Southern California or any major metropolitan city you have probably noticed that your life is being directly affected by changes in the weather, traffic patterns and sheer volume of people. All of these changes are real and they are happening for a number of reasons. Our cities are getting more crowded, particularly in both traditionally desirable areas and in downtown areas. When downtowns grow and suburbs grow, infilling is not far behind. The gig economy and shared vehicle, shared residential, shared commercial space means that more people are out of office and out of home. Now factor in the fact that there is an app for just about everything. That means your secret shortcut from the South Bay to the PDC or downtown is now public knowledge and every Uber and left driver is using it as well.

So what does that have to do with design and architecture? Everything. It means that our homes and offices are in need of material changes in form and function. Things like adding charging stations to exteriors, transitioning from living rooms, dens and dining rooms to more universal use spaces. It means finding ways to increase indoor/ outdoor livability and trying to account for what’s next. I have been saying for some time now that architects and designers alike are our next “futurists”. You are prognosticators of what comes next and need to design accordingly.

It is with that in mind that I recorded this conversation for the LA Design Festival with LA Metro Senior Manager/ Lead Designer for Signage and Environmental Graphic Design, Sharleen McLaughlin and Dave Sotero Spokesman for LA County Metro. This conversation covers a lot of ground from art to policy.

I was recording live from the WestEdge Design Fair and onstage with me are designer Kelli Ellis and Interiors Magazine Editor-In-Chief Erika Heet. If you listen to the podcast regularly you know that I like to go deep and focus on the less explored side of design and architecture. The business side is fascinating to me and these two women are hyper-engaged and have so much to offer. They are also polar opposites in their demeanor and style.

Conversations like these are fun, informative and also a little like doing the tightrope without the benefit of a net. Something really interesting about Kelli is her diverse background. She has a degree in marketing, studied law and has made a name for herself with her psychological approach to design. Erika is the Editor-In-Chief of Interiors Magazine and crafts a story like very few can. She studied english at Berkley and her work embodies a truly special approach to architecture and design. She too, knows the business well and that is where this episode gets interesting.

If you are a creative type and want to grow your brand. You are about to get step-by-step instructions.

This is Convo By Design with a special conversation with Dan Burnn, a fascinating architect. This interview was recorded live from the WestEdge Design Fair in the Programming Lounge presented by Convo By Design. This conversation was really fun for me. Dan is a very interesting guy with a unique perspective on architecture and how he bends and blends ideas to fit the lives of his clients.

Dan and I spoke about modern ideas in architecture and studied two of his California projects, the Flip-Flop House in Venice and the Bridge House in Hancock Park. Dan was raised in Tel Aviv and his love of and passion for the Bauhaus architecture in which he grew up is evident in his work. His designs are expressive and unique but the first goal is to be of use to those living within. The Flip-Flop project, as you’ll hear is about privacy in a public setting and display of Art, while using the light and views without the ability to close the space off from public view. The Bridge House is a master work of ingenuity and spatial craftwork. Both show ho Brunn approaches his craft.

Before we get into this conversation with Dan, I want to thank you for listening and invite you to join in the conversation, you can find us @ConvoByDesign on twitter and @ConvoXDesign with an ‘X” on Facebook and Instagram. You can also find videos from these conversations on our YouTube channel, again search Convo By Design and you will find over 120 videos from some of your favorite guests.

The National Kitchen and Bath Association conducts one of the most comprehensive kitchen competitions I know of. Many designers I have spoken to are not even aware of the competition so I wanted to shed some light on the subject.

Elle H Millard is a certified kitchen designer and Industry Relations Manager for the NKBA. She joined me for a conversation about the NKBA and the kitchen competition. I enjoyed my chat with Elle and I was reminded that designers and architects need only search for opportunities that allow them to showcase their work using the marketing power of other organizations. The NKBA provides a great opportunity to do that.

I have told you a number of times why I started this podcast and how much I love these conversations. Following is one of my favorites for a number of reasons. I had the chance to sit with Anthony Poon, musician, artist, teacher, award-winning architect and IIDA interior designer. Poon received his Bachelor of Arts from Berkley and his Master of Architecture from Harvard.

So, we talk about architecture but we also discuss music and art, compare and contrast these disciplines and explore ways to incorporate new ideas into traditional applications using untraditional methods.

I loved this conversation and I hope you do too, but before we get into this conversation with Anthony, I want to thank you for listening and invite you to join in the conversation, you can find us @ConvoByDesign on twitter and @ConvoXDesign with an ‘X” on Facebook and Instagram.

This past weekend was the WestEdge Design Fair and once again, Troy Hanson and Megan Reilly have outdone themselves. I have been so fortunate to be associated with Troy and Megan at WestEdge. This is my favorite design event because it is really, as Troy and Megan have called it, “the anti-trade show”. Not that shows for the trade are bad, they are great. This one is presented differently and having worked with them for so many years, they try to give their attendees something new and different.

In that spirit, I wanted to do something unique as well and for Convo By Design, this was a huge endeavor. We were the presenting partners for the Programming Lounge and there were really two sides to this. The programming side and the design side. For the design, I turned to a trusted friend and incredible talent, Julia Wong of Julia Wong Designs. Julia did something fantastic with this space, not the least of which was collaborating with me to create a custom podcast desk that is completely mobile, dripping with luxury detail and designed for podcasters, YouTubers, home office communications as well as a great place for family based digital communications in a clean space with hidden wires and enough room for the whole family or team. It is also available for purchase with a ton of customized details. For more information, email the show convobydesign@outlook dot com and reference “Podcast Desk” in the subject line.

Okay, so this episode is special. It is a kickoff from the event and features the first conversation of the event featuring acclaimed designer Lori Dennis, Nicholas Gawith of Publicis.Sapient and Ivette Serrano of Lamps Plus. We talked about brand development for creatives. I wanted this group to cover the topic from the single designer to that of a global brand and this group delivered. After the stage segment ended, we broke up into groups and audience members became participants in a workshop with the panelists, it was special. Thank you to WestEdge Design Fair for allowing me the latitude to experiment, thank you to ASID Los Angeles for presenting this conversation and thank you to Lori, Nick and Ivette for their time and insights. And a huge thank you to you for listening as well as those that came to WestEdge Design Fair and participated in the events in the Programming Lounge presented by Convo By Design. I hope you enjoy this episode. If you do, please consider giving us a five star rating on iTunes or the platform where you find the show and make sure to check out the YouTube channel where you can see video from many of your favorite episodes… including this one.

Xander Noori and Keon Khajavi-Noori are Orange County, California’s dynamic duo of design. This all-in partnership is both personal and professional and as you listen to these two talk about how they met and how they work you will see that this partnership is built upon and thrives on contrast, conviction and perhaps a little conflict.

They each have their professional lane in which they try to remain and there is a great deal of respect each has for the other and each compensates for the other, sometimes grudgingly so. This was a truly fun conversation and I think you will find it especially interesting to hear not just about the design, but their product development and the never-ending desire to travel abroad to the industry’s most storied design focused events.

It’s October and in addition to all the things we love about Fall, one of our favorite design events is here and Convo By Design, Presented By Snyder Diamond is proud to be working with the WestEdge Design Fair again this year. Please make plans to attend this years event at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar, October 18th through the 21st, and stop by the Convo By Design Programming Lounge designed by Julia Wong Designs. The goal was simple, provide compelling conversations for the trade and design enthusiasts. That’s it. So, this year, you will be hearing from remarkable professionals spanning multiple industries in an effort to offer new ideas and actionable concepts.

This is Convo By Design with award winning set decorator, Victor Zolfo. Award winning…. Oscar winning for his work on Benjamin Button. I was really curious what that experience was like. How do you prepare yourself for the Academy Awards? Do you prepare a speech, or not? What if you win, what if you don’t…. I know, it’s an honor just being nominated. I’m sure that it is, but what if they don’t call your name? So, you get to hear it strait from someone who’s been there.

Zolfo has works on some truly memorable projects including The Avengers, The Social Network, Deepwater Horizon, Real Steel, Daredevil, Godzilla, and many many more but what is really interesting about this list is the diversity in his work. You have a range, yes in genres, but look at the diversity in time and feel. Victor’s job, his art is taking words from a page and crafting an environment so when you and I go see this movie, we believe that character but also that the character belongs in that space.

You are also going to hear Victor talk about films like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the 2005 Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie film that was rumored to be the start of their relationship. This film was really interesting as well for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that a main character is the house itself… And the house is killed off in dramatic fashion. How does Zolfo manage the process knowing the a film isn’t shot sequentially. You are going to find out. This is Oscar winning set decorator, Victor Zolfo.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
