Episode 235: Amping Up Success with a Design Consultant—with Michelle Fox
You can give your consulting clients a wow experience through elevated design and a choreographed process.
In this Craft of Consulting Podcast episode, I interview Michelle Fox, creative director and owner of The Bridge Studio. She shares how she works with purpose-driven clients to give them better products and experiences than they imagined. She also shares her journey to and through entrepreneurship and advice for new consultants as they build their businesses.
In this episode, we talk about:
Deciding what to call yourself
Sharing her entrepreneurial origin story
Understanding that design is ultimately about how we frame approach and solve problems
Working with subcontractors
Creating a cohesive experience on the client side
Using an example from her work with the U.S. Climate Alliance
Doing something for your design, even if you can’t hire a design consultant
Defining what you don’t do
Brining in design help for consulting clients when you need to
