Interior Design professional program 2005 – 2007
Fashion Institute of Merchandising (FIDM) – San Francisco, CA.
I entered into the program to learn Architecture and Interior design as well as to channel my creative ability to apply to designing spaces. I was taught the standard design process of programming, schematic design, design development, contract documentation, and project management. Understanding each phase and how to develop a design model from start to finish has given me the capability to enter into the design industry armed with fundamental skills.
Drawing, hand drafting, one and two point perspective, color rendering, color theory, create construction documents and FF&E books, and project management.
COMPUTER SOFTWARE SKILLS:
Auto Cad 2008/2010 for drafting and 3D perspective and Adobe Creative Suite for creating logos, adding texture to spaces, and portfolio building.
Revit I and II – 2010
UC Berkeley Extension – San Francisco, CA.
Revit is a fairly new drafting software that many firms are transitioning to from Auto Cad or Vector works. An innovative software that gives designers and architects the ease of creating and not having to be concerned with understanding key code shortcuts and creating basic design elements. Therefore, I find it important to update my software knowledge constantly to keep up with the fast pace design industry.
