and she is an “interior designer”…… then why would I want to be a “certified” version of this?
Once again if we, the code regulated commercial interior designers of America, wish to establish a public image that demands understanding and respect we need to do one of two things;
- Establish a public messaging campaign that will overcome decades of confusion and misunderstanding of interior design and the interior designer’s role in the design of the code regulated built environment. OR
- Leave “interior design” to the innately qualified by creating our own unique professional identity* that distinguishes us from “interior designers” by default.
If anybody has a better idea please come forward.
*See Interior Architecture.
P.S. If you think the above popular media piece in the nation’s 39th largest T.V. market is a rare one-off segment you are wrong. It is by far the most common public face of “interior design”. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
