Mornings with Mayesh: Inspiration & the Creative Process

Mornings with Mayesh: Inspiration & the Creative Process

Our Mayesh Design Star, Tyson Lee of Mister Lee Designs, was my guest on yesterday's live show! We chatted about his second flower design tutorial video featuring an avant-garde floral wig, landing high-profile clients, finding inspiration for his floral designs, the creative process, and more.


Below is the podcast, video reply, pictures, and show notes:









  • Your floral wig design featured in your first video had a more of a wedding vibe - this time around your next design is completely avant-garde. Can you talk a bit about the difference between the two flower designs and also the different design mechanics that you used?
    • used about 100 stems of amaranthus

  • You have done a great range of floral projects ranging from working with a lighting company to the drag community - what are some of your most memorable projects?

  • I know you can't talk about who some of your high-profile clients are, but how do you get these types of clients?

  • It seems like you found the sweet spot where your clients let you do what you want, How did you get to the place?

  • How do you deal with customers who are pickier? Do you turn them down or embrace the challenge?

  • Let’s talk inspiration … where do you get your inspiration from?

  • Once you are inspired, what is your creative process - taking your inspiration to realization?

  • What career goals have you set for the next 5 years?

  • How would you define success in your career?
