Seek & Find … Then Design it All!

Thursday, February 24th, Deanna Kuhlman-Leavitt spoke at the Creative Alliance. She talked about her company’s transition from a print-based design firm to a multi-disciplinary firm, willing to take on many types of design projects from non-traditional trade show displays and interior design for restaurants and retail stores, even going so far as to leverage her trade show development into launching a trade show presentation product.

She and her designers have found inspiration from diverse things such as landscaping, Japanese design and unique lighting. When designing in a space, Kuhlman-Leavitt and her team seem to take advantage of what could be perceived as a weakness and/or inexperience and use their fresh observations to revolutionize the way things are perceived in these new spaces.

Thanks to Deanna for coming all the way from St. Louis to share her story.
