Trish talks to her teacher Dr. Angelita Scott, an interior design professor at Georgia Southern University and a scholar of research-based design.
On this first Student Lounge of 2019, Trish sits down with Emily Springer, junior designer at Barbour Spangle Design. Springer works in High Point, North Carolina, home of the biannual furniture market and graduated in 2016 from High Point University. She tells Trish about all the experience she got while she was in school and how she made the most of that time when choosing how to develop her experience.
This week, Trish hosts Emily Hall in the Student Lounge. Hall is VP of marketing at Charrette Venture Group, a venture capital firm that guides small architecture businesses toward success. Like interior designers, architects aren’t necessarily taught how to run a business, so CVG supports those businesses to encourage growth.
Today, Trish has Malibu designer Barrie Livingstone in the Student Lounge. Livingstone is a veteran interior designer whose career took him from Manchester to Florida, to Dubai and finally to Malibu. He shares his wisdom about the best way to network, how to break into the industry as a student, and how to dress when job hunting.
