Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney grew up knowing she wasn’t straight but not knowing what to do with that. Her love of Riot Grrrl music and angry collages informed her creative identity and after studying art and journalism in college, it all melted together in the creation of Design*Sponge. After 15 years and a lot of success, she’s just announced that she plans to shutter this year and she’s sending it out in a blaze of experimentation and celebration. We can’t wait to see what’s next!

Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge

When we think about thoughtful online storytelling, no one does it quite like Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. As a true leader in the digital space, Grace's 15-year journey has left an indelible imprint on how we self-publish and build viable businesses in the digital age. Outside of Design*Sponge's namesake website, Grace has built a creative empire that spans beyond the confines of the web to include two books, a magazine, and a podcast. But over time, Grace has seen the landscape evolve, and she's grappled with how to maintain that balance of conscious publishing in a time that demands fast (and fleeting) content. When Grace announced that 2019 would be Design*Sponge's final year, her honesty resonated with us. In this episode, she addressed the realities that come with championing slow content in specific industries, and the importance of using content and online tools to build honest and lasting connections. This episode also opens with a story contributed by Ellie Eckert of City Brewed and Written Coffee.

Grace Bonney Breaks Up With The Pursuit Of Perfection

Play
Read more

Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney knows what it’s like to strive for someone else’s idea of perfection. For a long time she tried to be the person she felt the niche design blog world wanted her to be: thin, straight, flawless — basically, an Anthropologie rack come to life. Then she turned 30 and realized that, in fact, she needed to be herself.

Grace Bonney (Design Sponge) talks about coming out at 30, why figuring out a delicate part of your identity in a public space isn't ideal, and why people not perceiving her as gay means she's constantly having to come out to people. She also talks about how the internet forces you into a place where you don't feel safe admitting mistakes, how blogging has changed, and why one day, she's going to step away from it all.

Grace Bonney on Design, Evolution and Serendipity

Play
Read more

Growing up, Grace Bonney, was all about culture and music, with a strong connection with jam bands that landed her on the business side of music and media in New York City. Along the way, she launched a side project blog called Design Sponge, to share insights about growing passion for accessible home design.

The blog exploded and, eventually, she left her full-time job to build Design Sponge into a full-blown media company of her own with a massive, global audience, a book, travel and an increasingly public profile. But, along the way, Grace’s interests evolved, creating a gap between what she was creating, what she genuinely cared about and how she wanted to live.

That all came to a head about 5 years ago when pretty much every part of her life, her marriage, her health and work-life were profoundly disrupted, setting in motion an awakening to a new direction in all three domains. Grace was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, her marriage ended, she came out, fell in love with her now wife, Julia, wrote a new book called In the Company of Women not about design, but about powerful creative women in business, launched a print magazine called Good Company, moved out of New York City, her home of 15 years, to live in a country hamlet with 400 people and rediscover true community, purpose and presence.

We dive into this transformational journey in today’s powerful, revealing and inspiring conversation.
