What's in the book

The Book

The interior designers of tomorrow require a professional practice text that is contemporary and innovative enough to prepare them for the rapidly evolving landscape of the 21st century workplace. Professional Practice for Interior Designers in the Global Marketplace arms students of the Millennial Generation with the know-how they’ll need to launch and evolve their careers. It emphasizes the essential skills and knowledge required to work in a firm as an entry-level designer, while providing an overview of what is involved in starting, owning, and operating an interior design business. Although rooted in fundamentals, the book incorporates up-to-the-minute developments including globalization, changing demographics, the rise of networking technologies, sustainable design, social responsibility, and global economics.
