Designer and TV Personality Amy Devers Brings Clever to the SURROUND Podcast Network
Take a behind-the-scenes look at how design shapes the world and informs the fabric of society with Clever, the latest addition to SANDOW Design Group’s SURROUND podcast network.
Hosted by designer and Emmy Award-winning television personality Amy Devers, Clever puts the spotlight on the creative forces shaping the design world. Think Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, Paola Antonelli, and Bobby Berk to name a few. Devers, previously an independent designer and builder of furniture and interiors, has also hosted several television and digital series focused on international design, architecture, original furniture design and build, home improvement, culture, and food.
“As we continue to showcase the design industry’s most inspiring voices, Clever is a perfect addition to the SURROUND Podcast Network,” said Bobby Bonett, SANDOW Design Group’s executive vice president of digital and strategic growth. “Amy is brilliant, authentic, and extremely engaging. We’re excited to collaborate with her and the Clever brand on telling great design stories.”
