I participated in a great meeting this week, with a gathering of fellow interior designers, architects, educators, and students. Amazingly, the general consensus was that since design technology is evolving so rapidly, we would all love a chance to go through our respective programs all over again and improve on our college projects. Since architecture or design school is one of the hardest things we have ever done, we all found the desire a bit masochistic, but in a good way. We all want to be better. We all want to learn more!

Adding the site and landscaping is next on my list.
I went back to school specifically to learn how to use this amazing tool, Autodesk Revit. (BIM Modeling is revolutionizing the industry.) Design, as a whole, is usually one of the first items cut out of commercial and residential budgets during times like these. Designers and architects spend their entire career in a perpetual state of educating themselves on current advances in their respective fields. We spend lots of time, energy, and money trying to keep abreast of, or stay ahead of, cutting edge products and technology, so that we may better serve our clients.
Both commercial and residential consumer thinking trends towards saving office or home updates for more prosperous times, but I propose that an investment in design, during times like these, challenges a good designer to work within budgetary constraints that often produce our best work. Hire us. Give us a chance to show you what we can do for you!
