Mountain Land Design
2345 S. Main Street
Salt Lake City, Utah 84115

2018 KBIS Voices From The Industry & NKBA & Chapter Presentation Program
(.1 CEU)

You Are Not Your Job! Prevent Burn Out For Work/Life Balance:
Your most important “product” is your creativity. Clients & employers expect innovative & creative solutions to their complex design problems & depend upon you to deliver results.  That’s why it’s critical to be good stewards of your most precious resources: your time, creativity & energy.  Learn how to cultivate inspiration & manage time wisely with a healthy work/life balance based on core values & a visionary outlook.  Without it, you quickly burn out & produce mediocre results.  Sustainable design is not just a trend in the built environment, but a lifestyle that can maximize your talents & personal fulfillment through a renewable & inspired process.

Through lively lecture, small group discussion, worksheets, real-life stories & games in an interactive & organized format, attendees will:
• Discuss the direct correlation between sustainable design concepts, creativity & work/life balance.
• Identify & reclaim core values to properly apply time management tools.
• Create a personal benchmark & action plan for defining “success.”

Backlighting Natural Stone

Thursday, March 15, 2018 @ 4:00pm – 6:00pm

Stone Collection
2179 S. Commerce Center Drive, Suite 500
Salt Lake City, UT 84120

Backlighting natural stone, glass and resin slabs is one of the hottest trends in design right now for commercial and residential projects.

As more exotic natural stones are used throughout homes more people are beginning to use this material in different ways. One of these is through backlighting, or lighting up the stone from underneath so that the surface of it glows.

Evo-Lite focuses on finding the perfect lighting solution for any custom project along with the education of how to integrate it properly. With over 70 years of combined experience illuminating translucent materials, Evo-Lite prides themselves in their ability to professionally guide their clients from concept to completion.

We are excited to have Michael, from Evo-Lite in Denver, join us to discuss how to design our projects and educate our clients about using LED light panels, light boxes, light tape and more!
The Stone Collection will have back lit slabs on display for a hands-on experience.

Members: $20
Non-Members: $30
Students: $10
