Interior designers need to be aware of complex social and human needs, environmental issues, structural concerns and significantly, how to offer delight, play and function within a designed space. Interior designers also need to respond to spatial issues, client concerns and governing authorities; communicating conceptual ideas and documenting those for client, budget and construction.
This year’s group of graduating interior designers have been offered design problems to solve, revolving around social, residential or commercial design problems. They have responded in an ambitious and creative manner demonstrating mature conceptual development and skill acquisition.
This group of students is to be congratulated on their determination and their creativity. They demonstrate a great sensitivity towards the needs of their specific clients and they have pursued this with integrity.
They have every reason to be proud of their achievements; we are. Tutors who have worked with this group of students have described them in glowing terms and have delighted in their individual development and group esprit. We all wish them the very best in all their creative endeavours and are confident in their abilities within a competitive industry.
