  • What I Wish I Knew When Potential Clients Call - Webinar 10/26/2021

    1:00 PM - 2:00 PM | DesignOn HPMKT by IMC Webinar via ZOOM

    Speakers: Genevieve Trousdale - Circaphiles
    Gail Baral - Circaphiles

    Event Type: Educational, Webinar

    Genevieve Trousdale Gail Baral

    Vetting and acquiring new clients is one of the tasks that many designers have an aversion to, but when a referral or an inquiry comes in, many designers expend time and effort reinventing the wheel because they don't have a clear and simple process for responding. Equally important, you may have been thinking about ways you can be more efficient and streamline your non-design tasks, and our goal is to offer you a solution. In this webinar, Genevieve Trousdale, founder of Circaphiles, and Gain Baral, Mindset Coach and Business Strategy Mentor for Creative Business Owners, will share valuable tips on how to master a discovery call, create an authentic connection with your client, strategies to help you spot “the good clients” and the confidence to elegantly walk away when the voice in your head is telling you to "run".

    Webinar presented by DesignOn HPMKT by IMC in partnership with Circaphiles.

    Event Type: Educational, Webinar

    From zealous florals to exuberant fauna, textile designers are finding ways to experience the beauty of outdoors without having to leave your living room. But where do these trends come from? More importantly, how can we prepare for them?

    Forecaster Julie Muñiz and textile designer Saana Baker will explore the timelines of trends and how it can be used to dissect the influence of nature on design. How will this evolve over the 3-5 years? And how will you be using and living with natural elements in 2030? Julie and Saana offer a peek into the future.
