Self StudyInternship Experience:I had the opportunity to work with a localdesigner in Skippack , Pennsylvania thesummer and fall of 2010. We met withclients on projects ranging from high endresidential to small commercial ventures.Part of the design process is to reassureclients and take away any fears they mayhave about their project. It was my job tocontact company representatives to checkon the status of an ordered item or to findout if a product is still current. Another taskwas to initiate and construct contracts withclients. Finally, I was able to utilize AutoCADskills for space planning needs.The pictures are from a Philadelphia citytownhome. The designer and I selected thefurniture, finishes, and designed the layoutfor the space in accordance with theclients needs and desires for the space.
