What's in the book

The Book

The ability to effectively and persuasively communicate design solutions is an essential (but often underemphasized) skill for successful interior design, and Presentation Strategies & Dialogues helps students hone that ability. By teaching aspiring designers how to use imagination, voice, gesture, presence, visual content, and analytical and physical tools, the book empowers readers to bring their ideas to life in a clear and compelling manner. Working from a view of the design presentation as an exchange of ideas, the book explores in depth how to cultivate interactions with clients and respond to their feedback. This eminently practical how-to book is a valuable resource for any design student, as a reference for a design studio class, or as a text for professional practice courses.
