A Conversation About Life Observed Differently | 352 | Julian Lennon

This is Convo By Design with a very special conversation that transcends design. Today we are talking about doing well, doing good, an eye for the unique and creating an exclusive collection of photography. We also talk music, travel and getting lost to find yourself with Julian lennon.

At one point in this conversation with Julian Lennon, you are going to hear a rare confession. His song Too Late For Goodbyes was in my top 5 mix tape songs that I made for girlfriends in high school. It’s embarrassing for 2 reasons, one is because that is a very middle-school thing to do and two, how many of you listening know what a mixtape is? Exactly. I bring this up because I felt a special connection to Lennon prior to actually speaking with him. It is very much the same type of connection I have when speaking with designers, architects and product designers whose work speaks to me. It is probably a similar feeling you have as well and that connection is what transcends design from something super luxurious, expensive or beautiful to work that has some form of direct connection to the creative themselves. 

My conversation with Julian covers his photography, the inspiration behind it as well as the journey required to capture every image. And how you can get them for your space or that which you are designing for your clients. Yes we also talk about music and the connection between photography and his music. This was a really fun conversation for me and one that would not have been possible had we not become so proficient with virtual meetings. Julian joined me from his home in Monaco, and I am truly appreciative for that.
