“Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself…” A Dream by Jay-Z
In January, Interior Design magazine published its annual list of the top 100 interior design firms for 2010. The top 5 firms on the list are: 1) Gensler 2) Perkins + Will 3) HOK 4) Nelson and 5) Jacobs. My current company isn’t on the list. Even though we are an engineering and architecture firm, with an interior design division, our primary specialization is in engineering. Anywho, my goal is to work for a firm that is on the Top 100 list after I graduate from school. I am familiar with some of the names on the list but need to do a little research to expand my knowledge base on “who’s who in interior design”. (future blog coming). The list also mentions that the median fee for interior designers increased by 3. 7 percent. Cool. I’m focused and I’m mapping out my career goals now. I have a lot to look forward to in the future. Who knows, maybe my firm will be on this list one day. (DREAM BIG) At any rate, I can’t wait until I can officially say, I’m an interior designer.
Are you working for your dream firm? Is there a design firm you aim to work for in the future? Do you desire to start your own firm one day? Are you currently the owner of a firm and desire to be on the Top 100 list one day?
