Many people look forward to the change in seasons or maybe their favorite holiday but in the design community, a new year means one thing: the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year.

3 Powerful Presentations from 2016

As another new year is almost upon us, I’m reminded of three powerful presentations that I was fortunate to attend in 2016 with lessons to carry forward into 2017.

The national SMPS (Society for Marketing Professional Services) and CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) conferences always have high caliber keynote speakers, and 2016 was no exception with Ben Casnocha and Amy Cuddy. Then at its local signature event in November, CREW St. Louis brought in national speaker AmyK. All three were dynamic, had great stories to tell and gave key takeaways to help others in their career development.

City Foundry St. Louis: The Backstory

Inspiration is everywhere; you just have to find it from the words of your favorite poet to the leaves of a beautiful fall day that might drive your imagination to another world. As a designer, I translate my inspirations to concepts that lead a design of a space. What inspires me you might ask? Nature plays a huge role in my inspiration. A hike to the mountains opens my imagination to a whole new level. The beauty of how each rock is formed and the breeze that comes through any lookout just instantly creates an idea in my head for what might become a ceiling design, a floor pattern, or even a feature wall design.
