We continue our journey through the forrest of unique conversations from this years LA Design Festival. This week, we have a very cool presentation from LADdesign founder, graphic designer, creative director and Grammy Award winner, Lawrence Azerrad. Azerrad’s studio, LADdesign is focused on the crossroads of branding, culture, music and education. It makes perfects sense too as Azzard’s prior experience was as an art director with Warner Bros. Records working on the creative packaging for artists ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Miles Davis.

Azzara is the author of a book called Supersonic: The Design and Lifestyle of Concorde. It is a Prestel release due out in September 2018. He is also a producer and creative director of The Voyager Golden Record 40th Anniversary Edition. He discusses all of it here in a conversation about design from a very unique point of view. Lawrence is introduced by Erika Abrams, member of the Advisory Board of the AIGA, Los Angeles chapter, as is Lawrence. A happy coincidence here is that we shared our space at the LA Design Festival with the AIGA LA as they were presenting some AMAZING subway art graphics that you can still see in the the background of our videos shot at the festival. Please go to our YouTube channel and check them out.

Thank you for listening to this episode of Convo By Design. If you like what you hear, and I hope you do, please give us a 5 star rating and a review. It helps new listeners find the podcast and it is greatly appreciated.

I was in #PalmSprings for #ModernismWeek and got into a very passionately heated conversation between an architect, designer and myself on the topic of intellectual Property rights and their relationship to the design and architecture business. The designer at the table that night was LA native and LA design fixture, Gary Gibson. My background is in broadcasting and digital media. Was the general manager and program director for Playboy and the digital audio division. It was there that I met Emile Nicolau. Emile is one of the sharpest minds in the field of intellectual property rights. As the GM, I didn’t always see eye-to-eye with Emile, but I did always listen to him and he kept me out of trouble. As I was thinking about how I wanted to present the ideas regarding design and intellectual property, I heard Lori Posner on a panel at the 2017 WestEdge Design Fair and was really impressed t both her knowledge of artist’s rights, but the manner in which she conveyed the ideas and made them easy to understand.

See, I have been around intellectual property for quite some time and it is probably one of the most complex areas of the law. And it is probably one of the most misunderstood elements of the design and architecture business. If you are a designer, architect, artist, product designer or creative of any type that delivers a product or design based on your creative talents, you have rights based on that performance. Knowing your rights and choosing to or not to enforce them are two very different things. The following conversation is all about intellectual property rights featuring IP attorney Emile Nicolaou, art expert, Wendy Posner and designer, Gary Gibson. This interview was recorded live from the Convo By Design Audio Design Lab at the LA Design Festival. A collaborative space designed to showcase audio design and explore issues that affect designers of every discipline. Publisher’s Note: My voice sounds terrible, it sounded like this all weekend from talking non stop over a three day period of time. I will have to take that into account the next time we do this.

Enjoy this conversation covering intellectual property rights for creatives, And if you do, please, head over to Apple Podcasts and leave us a five star rating and a review, it is greatly appreciated and it helps new listeners find the show.

The LA Design Festival has come and gone this year. But, over the next few weeks and months, you will be hearing the conversations that were recorded live in the Convo By Design Audio Design Lab as well as panel conversations from the main stage at the event. Design really is for everyone, Haily Zaki, founder of the LA Design Festival is a believer and practitioner of that very concept. Following is a conversation with Haily that was recorded during this year’s event.

For me, the main take-away from this years event, same as last year’s, I learn so much from creatives in other disciplines. The artists, graphic designers, wood workers, product developers and others leave me with a strong desire to see how I can incorporate new ideas into the construction and recording of audio for memorable on-demand experience. You will be seeing some new elements in the weeks and months to come, so look out for that. Enjoy this conversation with the LA Design Festivals Haily Zaki. And if you do, please, head over to Apple Podcasts and leave us a five star rating and a review, it is greatly appreciated and it helps others find the show.

You have heard from set decorators on the podcast before. I enjoy speaking to set decorators for a number of reasons not the least of which is their MacGyver like skills. The great ones possess a superpower for turning one thing into something else for the sake of the script. Another skill is looking at a page of text and creating a designed space based on nothing but that. Designers and architects do this every day by channeling and deciphering the needs and wishes of clients, now imagine there is now conversation, only the printed page. In contrast, there is also no actual homeowner, chef owner or client complaining that the cerulean just isn’t the “right” shade, that is true. You have heard from William DeBiasio before but this is the first time we have had the opportunity to sit together for a loner conversation. One specifically about the business and dressing a set for imaginary people. DeBiasio has been a set decorator for some time and you have seen his work on Pretty Little Liars, Famous In Love, Crank, Ray Donovan, Melrose Place, Gossip Girl and Skyscraper.

Decorating a set is not that different from designing a home. I find it really interesting in the process that many set decorators use to build characters for which to design. It is very similar to the process many of the world’s most successful designers deconstruct their clients in order to design for them. Enjoy this episode of Convo By Design with Set Decorator, William DeBiasio.

Pairing passions and finding a way to do what you love for a living make for great conversations. Art and architecture go so well together and it is an absolute joy to find these two qualities in the same individual. We have had masterful architects on past episodes like Takashi Yanai, who, in addition to being a masterful architect, is a highly skilled photographer. Ward Jewell, another master who is not only an accomplished draftsman but a musician as well. It seems counterintuitive to me because architecture is so steeped in math, angles and measurements that you would think there might not be room for such a heavy creative side. It seems counterintuitive to me but it is really fun to talk about pairing passions and adding more layers to these conversations. So, that being said, I had the chance to sit with Christopher Mercier, he prefers Chris, and we spent some time together at the LA Design Festival, recording in the Audio Design Lab.

You are going to hear a unique perspective on applying an artists approach to the mechanics of architecture. Blending and bending spaces in residential, retail and restaraunt design. Chris is also going to share, in his view, the 3 main purposes behind architecture and how that affects the way he works. You can also learn a little more about Chris and see some of his work on our YouTube channel.

Thank you for listening. If you like what you hear, and I hope you do. Please go to Apple Podcasts and leave us a note and a 5 star rating. It helps new listeners find the podcast. Enjoy this episode with architect and artist, Chris Mercier.

Design and food go hand in glove, the similarities are too numerous to mention all but consider texture, color and the connections we make with food, as we do with design that remind us of moments in time and places that make us happy. I had the opportunity to catch up with Steve Samson, a cornerstone of the Southern California culinary community. Samson is the chef and owner of not one but two Los Angeles restaurants on note, Sotto and Rossoblu. Steve has mastered the art of Italian cuisine and there is a very good reason for that, he has always had one foot firmly planted in Southern California and the other in Northern Italy, Bologna to be exact. You will hear Steve tell the story, and he can explain it far better than I can. But visiting his Bolognese family each year as he grew up allowed him to develop a feel for the Bolognese style of cooking, he was immersed in it and that is why he has focused his culinary career on Italian cooking. Samson has been recognized by Jonathan Gold, the LA Times, LA Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Eater LA the Robb Report and others for his accomplishments as culinary star. As you will hear, Steve doesn’t really pay attention to that because he just wants to cook, for you.

I am happiest at work when I am surrounded by creative types and talking about creative endeavors. The LA Design Festival has come and gone, but for the past few weeks, I have been culling throughout the content from the event and putting it together in ways that I want you to hear and see it. Sometimes, that means changing the order and this is one of those times. Following is a conversation for anyone who considers themselves a “creative”, an artist, designer, architect or any other title that says, “I engage in creative endeavors.” The following conversation was held at the LA Design Festival and focuses on the origins and process behind creative thinking by four decorated practitioners of the art… Participants include; Liam Young, the Australian born architect, founder of Tommorow’s Thoughts Today, a think tank that explores imaginary urbanisms. Young has taught at Princeton, currently at Sci-Arc. David Charles is a creative director and filmmaker. He has worked on 72andSunny, he’s the ECD of the LA office for Dutch shop KasselSkramer and he is a Sundance New Frontiers. Kerri Elsmly is the Chief Creative Officer for experiential design studio, Second Story and Toby Past, the award-winning Group Creative Director at Sapient Razorfish. Toby’s brand creative work is extensive and includes work for Acura, AT&T, Disney Entertainment among others.

This conversation is being presented to you before you hear the their panel on the subject of Design Thinking. The panel conversation was great and we will be presenting that, soon. But this conversation is about the process that goes into the creative thought process. Issues that you deal with every day from ideating an issue, trouble shooting, problem solving, falling in love with your own ideas versus letting them go and dealing with creative block. If you are a creative thinker, you deal with these issues daily. This is how some of the best in the business from different disciplines approach those very same issues. #design #Art #creativethinking #LADesignFestival

I have learned a lot in five seasons producing, hosting and publishing Convo By Design. If you have been listening for a while, you know that the show is presented by Snyder Diamond. It has been a while since we had Russ Diamond, second generation president of Snyder Diamond on the podcast and it was time to have Russ back. We were recording all weekend long at the LA Design Festival in downtown Los Angeles. Sitting with Russ is always a great opportunity to learn new things about the business side of design and following is a conversation that does not disappoint. Russ travels the world in search of new products to offer the Southern California design and architecture community. In addition to traveling to the factories to see how materials are sourced and made, he meets the craftsmen who make these products. In many cases, as you will hear, there are multi-generational friendships as well. He actually grew up with many of the executives running these companies. Through this philosophy, Russ also believes strongly in developing thought leadership in the industry and with those in the trade. This is how he does it. We also talk about some amazing opportunities for designers and architects at amazing events like Salone and Modernism Week.

Thank you for listening. If you like what you hear, and I hope you do. Please go to Apple Podcasts and leave us a note and a 5 star rating. It helps new listeners find the podcast. Enjoy this episode with Russ Diamond.

One of the most rewarding things about doing this podcast is meeting new architects, designers, artists, product manufacturers, show producers and fans of design. Here are a few things we all have in common… We love beautiful design and amazing architecture. We all love talking about beautiful design and amazing architecture. And, best of all, we all have very different opinions as to what does and does not qualify as beautiful or amazing. I get approached quite often at industry events by people who heard an episode, interview or panel discussion and either agree completely or disagree entirely.

This passion for our industry makes for some remarkable conversations. These conversations and exchange of ideas are so valuable in today's fractured society. Good conversation and sharing of ideas make us better people and they also make us better at our craft. I had the chance to sit sown with Gary Gibson. Designer, artist, sculptor, showroom owner and collector. I met Gary on a trip to Modernism Week and we instantly hit is off. Gary is a debater, if he wants to speak with you, he doesn’t care if you agree with him or not. He is honest, and better, he is informed. Gibson s one of those people that make you smarter at the end of a conversation. He is also someone that doesn’t have to be right, which is a rarity these days. Gary and I discuss a lot here from Modernism to showroom curation and management. Gary talks about collecting, picking and love of surface texture…. And way more than that.

Thank you for listening. If you like what you hear, and I hope you do. Please go to Apple Podcasts and leave us a note and a 5 star rating. It helps new listeners find the podcast. Enjoy this episode with Gary Gibson. Convo By Design -

This June seventh through tenth, Convo By Design will be back at the LA Design Festival. Last year, we covered the event as a media partner. We brought you coverage from some amazing events and conversations. This year, we are going back and in addition to covering all the activities from the event at ROW Downtown LA, Convo By Design will be hosting the Audio Design Lab, an experimental space dedicated to the craft of audio design. We will be hosting conversations, testing new equipment and techniques in audio design and inviting those of you with a design story to tell to come in and tell it. If you have a design related story to tell and plan on attending the LA Design Festival, tweet @ConvoByDesign #OpenMicLADF and we will send you you time slot, you could hear your story here or on Design, Etc. the official podcast of the LA Design Festival. It is hosted by LA Design Festival co-founder, Haily Zaki and produced by yours truly and Convo By Design Studios.

Following is a conversation from the 2017 LA Design Festival called Food and Design. It covers the crossover and intersection where food and design meet and crossover. Publisher’s note: You have probably noticed that I have been shying away from panel conversations here on the podcast. That is by design and for a very good reason. My goal is for everything you hear on Convo By Design to have meaning, purpose and ultimately, to be viewed, by you as a really good use of your time. So every conversation you hear on the show is evaluated with that in mind. This conversation was both important and valuable for a number of reasons. Food, restaurant and food packaging is as important to those designers as furniture, lighting and textiles are to an interior designer. The business decisions of restauranteurs, food packaging designers and chefs is of equal importance to that of furniture manufacturers, architects and showroom operators. With that in mind, following is Food and Design.

This conversation is moderated by AIGA board member Patrick Fredericton AIGA.Org and features:
