The home goods market in the United States is the largest market in the world. Then why do some interior design firms thrive while others barely survive? The answer lies in one powerful little word: brand. More than a pretty logo, it involves telling the story of your distinct point of view who you want to serve and why you do business, and it's a process that happens from the inside out. This book bridges the gap between designer and design leader and shows pros how to define, value, and communicate their vision; find clients who are a fit; and master the art of being visible. Worksheets give designers the tools to learn these strategies and apply them to their work. It also includes candid conversations with design leaders such as Barbara Barry, Rose Tarlow, Kelly Hoppen, Vicente Wolf, Christiane Lemieux, Clodagh, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, and others."

Praise for Food Swings “It’s a lot easier to make healthy choices when the meals are both good for you and crazy good at the same time. Jessica Seinfeld’s new book, Food Swings, has that nailed, packed as it is with simple recipes that are kind to your body, crowd-pleasingly delicious (quit the side-eye, picky fourth grader), even gluten-free. Dinner victory, all around.”—Redbook “Seinfeld has assembled 125 recipes that allow readers to eat as healthfully or indulgently as their mood dictates. . . . Readers can have their cake and quinoa, too, with Seinfeld’s latest, which strikes an effective balance between two popular eating styles.”—Library Journal “Jessica Seinfeld gets it, even down to the one-liners. With three cookbooks under her apron, Seinfeld takes a cue or two from her husband, Jerry, targeting both the devil and the damsel in her 125 recipes. She’s eminently practical, very straightforward, and keeps her dishes in line with our modern proclivities: quick, healthy with an occasional sinfulness, convenient for the beginner as well as for the experienced home chef.”—Booklist “In a friendly voice Seinfeld encourages readers to take her approach to what she calls ‘food swings’ and eat without guilt. Or, she concedes, to eat with less guilt. . . . However you divide up the recipes, this is a great day-to-day cookbook with tasty-looking recipes that are approachable and simple to prepare.”—Publishers Weekly
