    Asher Young: Founder of Challenge Your Imagination Studio

    Asher Young: Founder of Challenge Your Imagination Studio

    Edgar Allen Poe telling you to lie in this coffin and wait, A$AP Rocky being submerged underwater in a tank on the floor of Sotheby's, and lights dancing from tree to tree, are just some examples of the experiences Asher Young and his teams manifest.   His design studio, Challenge Your Imagination (found here:) Creative Direction, Design, & Producing | Challenge Your Imagination | New York (cyi.studio), is not only about pushing the boundaries of imagination, but it's also about connection.  That theme is something Asher brings up throughout the interview and what struck me is both how needed it is and how passionate Asher is about giving it to the world.  He speaks about this and so much more in this season 4 finale episode.

    Thank you Asher and thank you to your team for all of your hard work. Personally, I can't wait to see what you will create next.
