Hello creative community of Los Angeles,

Evenings at the Loft is back with our tenth monthly design salon this Friday, June 24. This Evening’s theme is on Design Pairings, how creatives pair with dev, sales, marketing and UX.

In the spirit of Evenings, we’ll also feature a night of delightful pairings all around, including food and drinks, and a special pairing game, brought to you by our friends at Onward Search.

Come hungry and ready to mingle with the community. This event will be at the Herman Miller Showroom but we intend to keep our rock n' roll vibe.


We will have four 10 minute talks of paired speakers who will explore their working relationship together. Our paired line-up includes:

  • Marketing & Design: Arturo Perez, CEO of Kluge Interactive and Laura Apel, Content Director at Telesign, the leader in mobile identity solutions.
  • Creative & UX: Marc Lassoff, Creative Director, and Andrew Turrell, Director of User Experience at RED Interactive, a digital agency with deep expertise in strategy, creative and technology.
  • Business Strategy & Design: Phil Kiczula, Director of Business Strategy at MJD Interactive, a digital Agency specializing in UX, Design and Mobile App Development.
  • Engineering & Design: Karen Fojas, UX Lead, and Dominique Kang, Product Manager at OpenX, a global leader in digital advertising technology.
