Last week, Jill, personifying the new-age of design, stepped boldly forward, raised her horn and responded melodically to my exhortation with a triumphant comment ...
Thank you indeed, Jill. 'Crying, jumping, squealing and winning' are just the kind of inspiration that INSPIRED.talk seeks this season. Jill's heraldic comments sound just like the comments we hope for from all of you, so let me exhort you to post a comment below about how you inspired your clients, indeed transformed their lives. Complete this sentence for all of us in this blogosphere ...
You know a design experience was extraordinary when ...
Then tell me how you did it. Here is some food for thought to which you can add your own spice:
Did you create from your client's collections a decor that looks and feels collected?
Did you encourage your cultivated clients to co-create with you?
Did your connoisseur-client crave your colorful story about why your choice was the choicest?
Don't be modest (come on you never have been), join us; be among the first, even part of the vanguard of INSPIRED.talk. I will post the extraordinary comments, and offer some thoughts on other luxurious experiences with the extraordinary value of design.
This is the right place at the right time to do this. INSPIRED.talk is our salon to carry on the conversation about the extraordinary value of design. The consumer/client market needs to and indeed wants to know more.
We are just getting started. In our first week, many of you have already ‘logged-on.’ Some comments are posted on the left of this message. From this initial reaction, it looks like many of you are inspired too. So, welcome - we designed this weblog so that you can participate in several ways:
Design Professionals can ‘post a comment’ below with an example of an extraordinary design experience afforded a client. Go ahead, describe it, but try to keep the natural enthusiasm to 40 words or less.
Design Enthusiasts can also ‘post a comment’ describing your extraordinary experience with a Design Professional.
Visitors for whom ‘blogging’ is new may just read along, or,
Visitors for whom blogging is natural, please ‘post a comment’ below with your own comments or suggestions.
Every week, after reviewing your comments, I will be returning to the conversation with new insights, experiences and opinions. Our goal will be to advance the design profession and INSPIRE discussion about the extraordinary value of design. Inspired? Talk.
For Design Professionals who want INSPIRED.live, I will be presenting to invited guests of Kravet:
The Extraordinary Value of Design: Earning the Premium for Luxury
June 4: Philadelphia, PA
June 24: Greenwich, CT
In this vibrant visual presentation, we interpret research conducted by Architectural Digest exclusively for Kravet and show how this research can inform the expectations of clients who seek a luxurious experience while working with their designers.
