IF WE HAVEN'T MET YET, LET'S!

LEED GREEN ASSOCIATE, DESIGNER

 

   WHY I DESIGN.

I believe there is beauty in process. I am constantly inspired by the evolution of a design from start to finish, and how a design can begin as a small idea and grow to be something unique that impacts the world around us. I feel as though this emphasis on process is analogous to the story that a design is created to tell. It is imperative to design with a purpose, in order to give a design a meaning.

 

The connections that individuals form with a space are invaluable, and I wish to design to emphasize and enhance this relationship. I believe that one’s surroundings should explore the idea of simplicity in design and aesthetics. I believe that the finest forms of design can be developed by using the simplest elements and principles. My emphasis of simplicity comes from beyond the physical design, visualizing the complex process behind designing beautiful things for people. Design should be something that surrounds you, because it is constantly evolving and impacting the world we live in.

 

                          IT'S FUN!

I’m Katie –designer, creative type, caffeine addict and avocado lover. I’m currently finishing up my MFA in Interior Design at Florida State University… Insert obligatory tomahawk chop here (but really, go Noles). Design is my medium – I get to design awesome spaces and memorable experiences for people. I love what I do, really (dream or reality? not quite sure, I’ll report back).

 

When I’m not designing, I enjoy emptying and refilling my coffee mug, quoting radio jingles (poorly), trying to be funny, puppies, and really, just having a good time.
