This Just in From the Streets of L.A.
The more PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER thinks about it the more we need to come up with another term that automatically distinguishes us from those that believe a flair for color or innate talent qualifies them for professional status as an “interior designer”.
We Don’t Need Know Edgukashun……..
http://www.idpcinfo.org/THREE_E_s.pdf I don’t get the point of this tirade. The desire to increase one’s stature and status within an ever increasingly complex society is simply natural. We do this by organizing, sharing and increasing our body of knowledge, instilling ethical practices and providing a unique benefit to society. To impugn this natural proclivity for self…
ANGRY DECORATORS MASSING ON THE FRONT LINES
But, but, I thought we were victorious in Florida…………….. Well it seems the angry decorators will not be satisfied until they completely de-professionalize the profession as we (the NCIDQ trained & certified segment of the profession) have endeavored for 35+ years to define it. What is driving these people? That is not a rhetorical question….in order defend our…
IDPC Fires One Over the IDAF Bow
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER can only assume that the pro-legislation effort is setting up a defensive stonghold. There is a lot at stake. Looks like the IJ and IDPC are setting up a multi-front offensive,
CREDENTIAL CONFUSION CONTINUES
So the pro-legislation effort in Indiana was successful in creating the Indiana Registry of Professional Interior Designers as explained in this Indianapolis Star article; http://www.indystar.com/article/20100502/LIVING02/5020337/1084/LIVING02/Remodeler-Use-an-interior-designer So if you opt to register does that allow you to use the following acronym; Joe Designer, IRPID? What if you are also a professional member of our illustrious professional…
A Different Perspective on the Hinkle Opinion
Unfortunately the only point I fully agree with Mr. Powell on is that if the profession does not get it’s collective mind around this issue…regardless of what side you may stand on, we are going to loose far more than the title “interior design”.
Just two examples of the pro-regulation proponents acquiescing on the title of interior design. From 2009; Oklahoma – SB 592, a bill amending the Interior Design Act, changed the title of licensees under the Act from “interior designer” to “registered interior designer” and was signed into law May 13. Texas – HB 1484, a bill…
QOL vs. HSW
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER prefers to think that his work improves quality of life (QOL) much more than it protects HSW. In fact that is why our clients hire us. Shouldn’t this be our flame by which we light our professional torch?
IT’S THE LAW….SOMEWHERE…SOMEHOW!
PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER’s version will include a revision date, and info on legislative status when possible. I will try to update it once a month or whenever critical information becomes available. I also hope to begin acknowledging Interior Design regulation efforts on a global basis.
Is It A New Pair-A-Dime Or…….
The pretty picture of some unlivable or unworkable interior tableau is becoming our professional albatross. Many of our so-called Interior Design trade magazines continue to ahem….dwell on the image and not the substance. I have experienced many an interior space that photographed well but was unlivable. Why do we continue to celebrate this?
