Designer Genevieve Trousdale
The Impact of Mentors: Studying Under World-Class Designers
Genevieve Trousdale is the founder and principle designer at Circa Genevieve, her Los Angeles based design firm. I hadn’t met Genevieve before this chat, but I was aware of her work. Genevieve was born and raised in Louisiana and her southern roots are always present in her work and her philosophy behind the work.
When I host these conversations, While I do a lot of research, I don’t come in with a list of questions. I like to go into these conversations with a strong understanding about the work but I also like to focus on the replies to questions and shift the conversations based on that. My conversation with Genevieve took a really interesting turn. Genevieve received mentorship working under two world-class designers, Timothy Corrigan and Michael Berman. I think you will find this part of the interview captivating. She details how this changed the course of her career trajectory. This led to a follow up conversation with both Michael and Timothy. All there will be joining me for a keynote panel at the WestEdge Design Fair in October to talk about this very topic.
