I live, eat, and breathe design. It permeates every corner of my life. For this reason, there are few things I enjoy more than having conversations with other creatives in the design space. As such, I am transforming The Style Files column which originated here on La Dolce Vita many years ago, and I am taking it a step further. In this new iteration, I am sitting down with some of the greatest talents and biggest trailblazers in the design industry for fascinating and inspiring conversations. In the The Style Files Podcast, we are getting really candid about what it takes to run a successful design business, the individual design journeys of some of the industry’s luminaries, where they find inspiration, what’s next in design, as well as dealing with our current events.
I have always loved storytelling and am passionate about design, so this is something I have been wanting to do for over a year now. In the midst of sheltering in place and working from home during the Coronavirus pandemic, I came to a quick realization– I suddenly had more time on my hands to work on my design projects and creative endeavors and now, more than ever, I was craving interaction and conversation with other design lovers. It was the catalyst I needed to bring this podcast to life. My hope is that the engaging and illuminating conversations in The Style Files Podcast will provide a bright spot for those who need a distraction, a source of inspiration, or guidance on what comes next as they navigate the future of their design business. Join us for these lively, engaging, and oftentimes hilarious conversations! The first five episodes featuring a wonderful roster of talent– Mark D. Sikes, Bunny Williams, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Amanda Lindroth, and Nick Olsen are available now! You can listen directly on our website, www.TheStyleFilesPodcast.com or on Spotify for now. The podcast should be available on Apple soon, fingers crossed! Stay tuned for new episodes which will drop every Wednesday featuring talents like Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Jonathan Adler, Young Huh, Mary McDonald, Lauren Liess, Dara Caponigro, William McLure, and many others!
