Let's Talk: ConvoByDesign

This week our post is all about listening rather than looking. If you're not already familiar with the podcast, ConvoByDesign, we encourage you to check it out.  CXD, as it's also known, is an original talk series that focuses on the design community and features one-on-one interviews, group discussions and timely talks on local events like DIEM. 

Earlier this summer, Snyder Diamond president Russ Diamond participated in a podcast all about our showrooms and how he travels the world to bring back the most cutting edge kitchen and bath products. Take a listen to Russ' insightful conversation with Josh Cooperman here, Episode 18. Then, spend some time exploring the many other wonderful conversations with top architects and designers like Estee Stanley, Michael Rachlin and Julia Wong. We're so pleased to be sponsors of such a wonderful program!

And, we're especially pleased to announce that Christine Anderson, founder of the Santa Monica-based public relations firm Communication Arts + Design, is the show's new host. Prior to launching her firm, Christine was one of the original reporters for KCRW's award-winning 'Arts LA' program, where she interviewed noted artists like Billy Al Bengston and Robert Graham during her tenure. She has also reported for NPR's 'Performance Today.' We're beyond excited to see (...er, hear) all the exciting content she'll be bringing to CXD.

Her brand new podcast just launched today and features a conversation with Marc Appleton, Bret Parsons and Steve Vaught on their new book series, Master Architects of Southern California, 1918-1941. To listen, click here.

You can access all of the CDX shows, past and present, via iTunes (click here) or TuneIn (click here). To stay in the know, you can follow CXD on Facebook and Twitter, too.

We think you'll have a great time listening... and learning!

Designers We Love Michael Rachlin's Master Plan

“I always wanted to build things,” says architect Michael Rachlin. “I remember building things with my father as early as age 6 or 7, working on projects around the house, and tinkering with model airplanes, cars and boats.” That early love of design continued as Rachlin grew up, ultimately leading to Arizona State University’s architecture program...
