Welcome to episode #52! Today’s guest is the Co-founder and Creative Director of Birsel + Seck, the award-winning design and innovation studio working with clients including Herman Miller, GE, Colgate-Palmolive, IKEA and Toyota.


 

She’s a highly experienced and sought after New York based designer. Is the creator of Design the Life You Love, a book and coursework that teaches designers and non-designers how to create a meaningful life using her design process, Deconstruction:Reconstruction™.

Fast Company identified her as one of the world’s most creative people and is on the Thinkers50 Radar List of the 30 management thinkers most likely to shape the future of organisations.

 

Some of the topics we spoke about include:

  • Her secret love for Karate
  • The most rewarding projects of her career – from toilet seats to car interiors to office spaces and furniture
  • How she handled the global financial crisis when clients no longer engaged her for work
  • And what a meaningful future really means.


If you are someone that’s ever been interested in using a design process to design the life you love, then this episode is for you.


I present to you … the optimistic, imaginative and purpose driven … Ayse Birsel!
