INTERIOR DESIGNER

This is the most obvious route for most designers. As an interior designer, you will be tasked with making the interiors of homes, offices, and other buildings beautiful. Interior designers have to be creative, understand color theory, and keep abreast with emerging interior design trends.

The designers may work with residential or commercial clients. Residential interior designers are mostly involved with styling and interior decorating, fabrics and furnishing. Commercial interiors designers may work in retail, offices, restaurants, hotels, and education institutions.

FURNITURE DESIGNERS

Furniture design is a more specialized part of interior design. As a furniture designer, your work can be twofold; with the client and with other suppliers. When working with a client, you may be tasked with arranging furniture at houses, showrooms, offices, and other areas to use space optimally, bring out desired themes and so on.

You may also work with your client’s suppliers such as carpenters, guiding them on what decorations to incorporate in the furniture to bring out your client’s tastes.

EXHIBITION DESIGNERS

Exhibition designers provide working layouts and decide the décor to be used in exhibition halls. The designers need to be knowledgeable on modular stand design, custom build designs, exhibition and museum design, and floor management. Other skills required include CAD and 3D packages like Adobe Suites and AutoCAD/Vector works.

When working on projects, the designers take into consideration the traffic expected at the exhibition hall, items that will be showcased and the theme of the exhibition.

LIGHTING DESIGNERS

Lighting designers ensure adequate lighting for the various projects they are involved in. The designers have to be knowledgeable in basic wiring or work with a qualified electrician to bring out various creative lighting effects depending on the nature of the projects.

Lighting designers may also be involved in schematic design and work on decorative products such as light fittings, shades and luminaries for a design consultancy or manufacturer. Knowledge in different types of lighting and their effects is crucial to the success of a lighting designer.

KITCHEN DESIGNERS

Kitchen designers are primarily involved with kitchen aesthetics and usefulness to the people who use them. The designers can work hand in hand with constructors to determine the floor plan or can come after the floorwork has been done to help clients with kitchen items.

Kitchen designers should balance both design and functionality of the items they recommend in the kitchen. The designers should know the effect of kitchen temperatures on the decors they go for, the maintenance required, and general replacement procedures.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS

Industrial designers develop the concepts for manufactured products, such as cars, home appliances, and toys. They combine art, business, and engineering to make products that people use every day. Industrial designers consider the function, aesthetics, production costs, and the usability of products when developing new product concepts.

LANDSCAPE DESIGNERS

Landscape architects design parks and the outdoor spaces of campuses, recreational facilities, private homes, and other open areas.
