Volume 6 Issue 2
Promoting excellence in interior design
Well, it’s that time of the year when we approach the closing date for entry to SBID’s International Design Awards. This always lead to a plethora of email requests asking for more time to upload entries, obtain intellectual property (IP) consent from clients and generally assemble the submissions. As a designer, I fully understand the issues. If you haven’t entered yet, go to our Awards website www.sbidawards.com and enter today!
We’ve been busy in other areas too and have put the finishing touches to the creation of our Colour Council, which will sit alongside our expert Healthcare Council. Now in its fifth year, the Healthcare Council is launching its first publication, a handbook for designers that provides quality advice and knowledge from leading experts in compliance, science, research, education, practice, manufacture, use and function.We lead the way in education too, supporting rising talent with Get Me 2 The Top, our national student competition. On pages 41-45, you can take a look at the winning projects from our Ukrainian edition of the competition, led by SBID’s office in Kiev. The standard is really superb and the well-deserved winners will benefit from professional support as they begin their careers.
I hope you enjoy this issue. As always, please do let us know if you have any comments or ideas for subjects you’d like us to cover; we’d love to hear from you.
