Opening Day! TEDGlobal in Edinburgh Scotland

The set up was brutal, but I’m finding everyone involved in setting up TEDGlobal to be the best people to work with. The highlight of my work here is the simulcast space in Cromdale Hall. It has a great feel – packed all the time. It’s a mix of different simulcast settings, exhibits from the speakers, and interactive installation. Everyone seems to be loving it.

Host Guests with Real Style. Hospitality Expo

Outdoor, Lobby and Guest Room – with a little imagination you can see the 3 settings designed for the hospitality market. Steelcase Coalesse furniture is so great to work with – I love it all but unfortunately just can’t afford to fill my house with it. It does make pulling together a beautiful booth pretty easy. The outdoor furniture is by Emu – a company in Italy that has an agreement to sell through Coalesse.

Brilliance on a World Stage

Working on TEDGlobal 2011 – The Stuff of Life. It’s coming together and going to be so great – it will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland. I leave on July 8th. Lots of hard work but the reward of attending the conference makes it all worth it. The speaker line up is impressive once again. More shots soon from the EICC as we set up.

Caught my Eye

Creating means taking a risk and following your gut to reach new heights. This quote hit home with me because I have experienced it. My best work is a result of trying something new without fear of failure. When I have second-guessed what someone wants and played it safe, I have failed.

Showcasing innovation. Nurture Healthcare Design

Nurture, a Steelcase Company, is all about the world of Healthcare. Tasked with introducing a new cart called Pocket we created a feature area in the front of the booth that was very accessible from all sides to pull people in and to experience how effortlessly the cart moves across the floor. The monitors helped explain the story. True to Nurture’s showroom strategy the booth was a story, told by environments, that give you the feeling that you are in an actual clinic. Further ensuring understanding the product and reinforcing that Nurture is a leader in Healthcare.
