Designing is one of the best arenas to build career in for people who love to indulge in creative sessions. For those who take their creativity seriously and wish to take it to another level should make up their mind to pursue career in the designing stream where there are plethora of courses available. One such area is interior designing. The job of a designer is equally exciting and challenging, and sees infinite growth. This section shall deal with the area of interior designing, and things that a designer should know before taking up this dynamic job.
For the starter, it is obvious for anyone who intends to build himself in Interior Design Career needs to have a knack for designing. There should be innate affection and understanding of colours, patches, combinations, building code, architecture, placement of objects etc. But interior designing is not a play with colours and combinations – there is more that needs to be learnt. One should have hands on knowledge on interior designing which can be pursued from any college that offers specialisation in the subject. Designers need to be educated in design, its history, concepts, building code, ethics of forming a design, computer aided drawing and more. On a broader perspective, designers are expected to be working with all kinds of clients- be it home owners, corporate clients, government agencies etc. One simply cannot restrict their area of work, especially in the beginning, as it is ideal to gain exposure in every area than limiting to one. Another thing that a designer needs to understand is that they shall not be able to earn crazy high amount the moment they kick start. One needs to gain experience and exposure in order to reach at the desired stage. One may build a portfolio on their design ideas and build a constructive study as to how they plan to take things forward in order to present a potential client some credible work. Not a people pleaser, but one needs to be a people person as certain clients are finicky and try to negotiate on non-valid points. Here wittiness and mitigation shall come in handy. Other is that designers need to understand there is fierce competition in interior designing, so they need to position themselves in such a way that they stand out of the crowd. Education in specific streams, or having extensive knowledge on modern architecture, and staying abreast on recent developments in designing are a few things one should keep a tab on.
