Program Recap

Susan M. Diamond, CSEP
Jigsaw Unlimited LLC

 

On March 6th, we were treated to a candid panel discussion by six local leaders in event design.  Moderated by Gretchen Culver of Rocket Science Events, the panel included Todd Pinzuti of Bungalow 6 Design, Carly Van Veldhuizen of Girl Friday, Amy Fuerstenbrg and Amy Steil of Mi Mi Design, and Ryan Hanson, CSEP of BeEvents.

 

Asked to offer one word that describes their design style (and most were hard pressed to stop at one word), we heard: chameleon, curated, clever, awesome and charming.  The panel’s design “crushes” include Martha Stewart, Jihan Zencirli, David Stark, Kelly Wearstler, David Merrill and any art director on a Ryan Murphy show.

 

Other topics included differentiating planning from design, fee structures, experiential design, social media and events, effective communication with clients, changing demographics in philanthropy, and Pinterest (a black hole!).

 

Asked their most challenging request by a client and, “Bedazzled Ginger Root” was probably the most surprising. With a final prediction, Ryan shared that, “Robots are coming!”

 

Special thanks to the The Machine Shop, Chowgirls Killer Catering, Linen Effects, AV for You, AVEX, Jenday Berry Art, the panelists and attendees for making it another great ILEA program.
