We’ve just announced another Keynote entitled, Your Creative Voice: Developing a unique one and using it to power your brand – a conversation with interior designer Jeff Andrews and Sophie Donelson.
Author and editor Sophie Donelson speaks to her friend, Los Angeles interior designer Jeff Andrews, about how authenticity, originality and POV helped fuel the success of Jeff’s business and influential brand and how to find and empower your own unique voice. Their chat will touch on Jeff’s career arc — from emerging designer to a portfolio of A-list celeb clients, international TV and media coverage, and licensed product deals. Jeff will offer tactics for cultivating a unique perspective (as well as clients who support it), how to deliver a signature look through traditional brand extensions like product collections and books to newer outlets like digital brand extensions, how to stay on brand as your personal style evolves, and ways to keep a robust business while standing your creative ground. Jeff’s first book, The New Glamour: Interiors with Star Quality, will be released by Rizzoli in March 2019.
