A PODCAST

PRESENTED BY IDCO

We’d love to host you.

In each episode, Founder Anastasia Casey hosts interior designers and industry tastemakers for transparent conversations about the practical realities of running a creative business. As always, the advice you receive here will be actionable, educational, and sincere as we delve into topics like client processes, sustainability, revenue streams, and hiring.

Anastasia Casey

In another life, Anastasia Casey would be an interior designer; but, because it involves too much math, she does her work on the digital plane as she designs for designers—crafting brands and online environments from a distinct perspective since 2016. Anastasia effortlessly connects with designers over the foundational belief that what makes a space memorable—even those online—is not only how it looks, but how it feels. Working with some of the industry’s most innovative thinkers, Anastasia has honed her own strengths and expanded IDCO Studio to include experts from all over the world.

In 2021, Apartment Therapy named Anastasia a “Design Changemaker” and IDCO Studio has been ranked one of the top 40 creative studios in the world by Fiona Humberstone three years running.

WHO IS HOSTING

Most recently, Anastasia’s commitment to bringing transparency, equity, and financial empowerment to the interior design industry has evolved beyond the internet to intimate luxury retreats in the form of her signature event, Design Camp.

 

When Anastasia isn’t leading her team of 22 from IDCO’s studio in Austin, you will find her catching a Master Pancake Theater show at Alamo Drafthouse, eating the chicken karaage under the trees at Loro, or getting her hands dirty renovating an East Texas lake house with her husband, Quinn, and pup, Kennedy.
