Season 5

Coffee Talk: Roast to Roast | S5E4

Have you got your Chock full o’ Nuts ready? Nestled all cozy into a comfy, comfy chair? That’s okay, we’ll wait. There’s no rush.

Okay, good. It’s time for some Coffee Talk. No specific theme today, just a veritable potpourri of fun conversation topics with our favourite cross-coastal designers, Garrison Hullinger and Lisa Davenport. Who let all these purple cows in here?

Points of interest include: remembering projects past, gift ideas, special sauce and secret weapons – and seriously, where did all these purple cows come from?

Creative Marketing Pt. 2: Calls to Action & Social Media | S5E3

Too much fab for one episode, Lisa and Garrison are still going strong on their creative and guerilla marketing share sesh in the second half of this two-parter (here’s Pt. I) . This time they highlight the importance of turning your relationships into evangelists for your work, differing approaches in how to go about a public portfolio, and have just a whole lot of laughs along the way.

Points of interest include: reviews, calls to action, much ado about Houzz – and much more.

Creative Marketing: Relationships & Publishing | S5E2

Grab your coffee and pull up a chair, it’s time to listen in to another cross-continental conversation between the lovely Lisa and Garrison! They had so much to say on the subject that we decided to split this one into two episodes! (Stay tuned for Pt. II.)

Finding new and creative niches in marketing – particularly ones that yield results – has always been a challenge, but now it’s more crucial than ever. Is it truly time to say goodbye to print publishing? (Spoiler: No!)

Points of interest include: power partnerships, highlighting your vendors, getting featured in publishing and broadcast media – and much more.
