A PODCAST

PRESENTED BY IDCO

Inspiration + Insight for the Design Community

Pull up a chair and listen in:

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.

Jesse James

Not to be confused with the infamous outlaw, Jesse James is IDCO’s expert videographer and go-to for all things online content. For more than six years, Jesse has worked in film and media, telling stories with authenticity, wit, and an undeniable eye for aesthetics. Jesse thrives working alongside a creative and passionate team, documenting their work in innovative ways for use across diverse channels. When he isn’t making us look better or just making us laugh, you will find Jesse playing guitar, serving the community, or learning more about his craft.
