I was in #PalmSprings for #ModernismWeek and got into a very passionately heated conversation between an architect, designer and myself on the topic of intellectual Property rights and their relationship to the design and architecture business. The designer at the table that night was LA native and LA design fixture, Gary Gibson. My background is in broadcasting and digital media. Was the general manager and program director for Playboy and the digital audio division. It was there that I met Emile Nicolaou. Emile is one of the sharpest minds in the field of intellectual property rights. As the GM, I didn’t always see eye-to-eye with Emile, but I did always listen to him and he kept me out of trouble. As I was thinking about how I wanted to present the ideas regarding design and intellectual property, I heard Lori Posner on a panel at the 2017 WestEdge Design Fair and was really impressed not just by her knowledge of artist’s rights, but the manner in which she conveyed the ideas and made them easy to understand. See, I have been around intellectual property for quite some time and it is probably one of the most complex areas of the law. And it is probably one of the most misunderstood elements of the design and architecture business. If you are a designer, architect, artist, product designer or creative of any type that delivers a product or design based on your creative talents, you have rights based on that performance. Knowing your rights and choosing to or not to enforce them are two very different things. The following conversation is all about intellectual property rights featuring IP attorney Emile Nicolaou, art expert, Wendy Posner and designer, Gary Gibson. This interview was recorded live from the Convo By Design Audio Design Lab at the LA Design Festival. A collaborative space designed to showcase audio design and explore issues that affect designers of every discipline.

Stephen Francis Jones of SF Jones Architects shares his thoughts on designing and building modern restaurant spaces while contrasting options between use of shipping containers versus brick and mortar build-outs.  These ideas are not only relevant but extremely timely as Southern California is deep in a property crisis. Restauranteurs must account for extremely high build-out costs as well as high rents and try to provide a quality and affordable menu. Stick built or shipping container, what options make the most sense.
