The State of Design : Colorado | 313 | Wellness & Design Thought Leadership Series



This is Convo By Design with a spotlight on the state of design in Colorado, part of the Wellness and Thought Leadership Series presented by ThermaSol. Colorado is America’s playground with four seasons, almost any recreational activity one can imagine and a fun-loving, adventurous spirit. This draws a wide variety of individuals and an abundance of opportunities for crafting unique and spectacular design. With opportunity come equal challenges from harsh weather conditions to extreme topography but Colorado’s pioneering spirit endures.

This conversation features architect, Kim Raymond of Kim Raymond Architecture and interiors and Michael Rath, President and Director of Design Services for Trilogy Partners. We are talking about the frontier with extreme conditions, just about any outdoor activity you can enjoy and extreme building and design conditions. If you live and design in Colorado, this is a must-listen, and if you are outside Colorado, you are going to be inspired, I promise.

I am incredibly proud to partner with ThermaSol on this initiative called the Wellness and Design Thought Leadership Series. These panel conversations feature smart, innovative design thought leaders talking about issues affecting us all in the business today. I’m working with ThermaSol for the second year now and I have had the opportunity to get to know Mitch Altman, third generation of this family owned and operated business. This company was built on innovation. Their origin story is impressive and the products are innovative, they showcase not only the increased interest for wellness in todays ground breaking design but the need for smart showers, steam and spa-like luxury in the bathroom. If you are not incorporating smart steam showers into every bathroom you design, you are missing out on an opportunity to increase the per bathroom budget and provide clients with something they desperately want. Enjoy the episode of Convo By Design and the Wellness and Design Thought Leadership Series featuring Kim Raymond, Michael Rath and the wild frontier of design, Colorado.

Wellness & Design Thought Leadership Series | 311 | The Business of Design



This is Convo By Design with something you need right now, business strategies that will help you take your design business to the next level. Wellness and design thought leadership presented by ThermaSol.

I wanted to give you something to start the year off right and in doing so, partnered with ThermaSol to bring you a series covering high concepts with actionable strategies you can use starting today. As we enter 2021 and think to the future, we should also take some time to consider our business model, executing those brand extensions we have been pondering for the past 10 months. Let’s do that smartly. Let’s deconstruct the many different business models and ideate best practices, expectations from trade partners and manage the expectations of clients. Can we promote with intellectual property integrity, extend our services beyond the traditional word of mouth without overextending the small but loyal team? Expand delivery window, promote research and development, eliminate getting shopped by clients and expand our creative horizons.

This conversation features Dirty Girl Construction’s Joan Barton, John McCulley of McCulley Design Lab and designer, Ray Langhammer. I enlisted the skillful and incredibly talented Christopher Grubb to moderate this conversation. This is The Business of Design, part of the Wellness and design leadership series presented by ThermaSol.
