We know that in order to forge a successful commercial career in the creative industries, student designers must bridge the gap between learning and earning.

SBID can help students do this by linking them with an Accredited design professional as a mentor.

Employers usually seek applicants with creativity, as well as a good technical understanding of the production process for interior design in the residential or commercial sectors.
