Episode #37: Dora Drimalas on How Hobbies Become Thriving Businesses
In the latest HOW Design Live podcast episode, Ilise Benun, founder of Marketing-Mentor.com and HOW Design Live Programming Partner, talks with Dora Drimalas about how she and her husband and partner, Brian Flynn, have built not only a thriving design firm but how their hobbies have also turned into thriving businesses. She reveals the secret to their success – it’s something anyone can do.
About Dora Drimalas:
Dora Drimalas is the executive creative director and co-founder of Hybrid Design. Dora’s extensive background in brand strategy and design has allowed her to work intimately with some of the largest brands in the world such as Nike, TED Conferences, Lego, Apple, Samsung, Mohawk Fine Paper, and Starwood Hotels.
The studio environment at Hybrid centers around the idea that new things happen when opposing influences collide. Hybrid proves this theory daily with their studio work and their experimental toy company and retail store, Super7, and its various artist collaborations and projects.
