What do YOU DO?

I am an Independent Design Associate.  I work with clients virtually from my home office. 

 

ARCHITECTURAL VISUALIZATION: I partner with luxury and high-end design, architecture and real estate professionals who want premium visualizations and animations for their presentations and marketing.

 

CUSTOM DESIGN:  I work with home owners to design custom homes, kitchens and baths.  I provide design plans and material suggestions that can be taken to the contractors of your choice and implement on your own.

 

Each Designer will have their own processes and systems, based on their education, training and experience.  The following is my process, in general, and does represent common industry practices.
