Welcome to the I Heart Costa Mesa Show! Where a couple of neighbors with a microphone live, learn and love on Costa Mesa, California. We'll be interviewing locals, sharing stories and connecting with our community. Follow along!

Oct 26, 2018

If you've noticed the fresh, beautiful modernization of local establishments like Eastside Mini Mart, Jan's Health Bar or Memphis Cafe - or marveled at Pacific City's Lot 579 food court, or the swanky, remodeled Lido Marina Village - you've unwittingly been touched by the design prowess of local Architectural and Interior Designer, Amanda Malson, of Common Standard Design.

On today's podcast, this Eastside Costa Mesan shares the lessons she's learned, her creative process for designing (or redesigning) notable local projects, how she career-hacked the Recession of 2008 and what she loves best about living and working here in Costa Mesa.
