Ep. 3: Connie Ozan Talks Good Design

What does good design look like?

Hosted by Tyler Freeland

“I get excited about seeing what’s possible and seeing what others maybe cannot.”— Connie Ozan

On this episode of the Brand X Cleveland Podcast, host, Tyler Freeland zoomed with Connie Ozan, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer of TWIST Creative Inc. and board member of the Cleveland Institute of Art. The theme of the conversation centered around Connie’s innate ability and passion to be creative: how she sees the world, how she tackles problems, and how that reflects in the work at TWIST Creative Inc.

One of the most memorable moments of the episode (besides finding out Connie’s favorite shape) happened when Tyler and Connie delved into the topic of inspiration. When asked about her inspirations as a designer and creative problem solver, Connie Ozan was quick to name names, but one in particular stood out among the rest.

“Kelly Wearstler is another big name on my list. She is an interior designer out in Los Angeles. And her work is just incredible. She uses a lot of different materials in her interior design, she does a lot of hotels and things like that, but she pushes the boundaries.”— Connie Ozan

You’ll find this common language used by Connie throughout the episode: a language that speaks to pushing boundaries, not being afraid, seeing things differently and being passionate about your work. And it all points to the agency culture at TWIST Creative: The Fearless Thinkers.
