Although Interior Design is very creative, a large part of my role involves knowing how to use software effectively to bring a vision to life (although a pencil is still a must!). Having set up efficient systems to save time and reduce costs as well as minimising human errors. If I am working as part of a large team I like to establish a working structure from the beginning; and if needed, adjust to their way of working.
Having worked with AutoCAD professionally since 2010, it has become my most valued program. Using it for small to large drawing packages using CAD standards and a library of blocks as a resource when designing.
A quick and effective tool for building interior spaces. Testing joinery and furniture ideas for small to medium projects. As well as a great visual tool for clients, creating initial designs or diagrams for large projects.
Working in 3D has proven to be a time saving and efficient way of working to produce drawings, especially when working with Architects on large commercial projects.
Although I often use hand drawing to start off my sketches, using a digital pen, combined with Photoshop can give a more professional finish. Making it quicker to amend and adjust sketches based on client feedback or as a design develops.
