What is it like working as an Interior Designer?
Interior Designer in Denver:
"Increasingly Interactive And Technical."
Pros: Continual exposure to ever changing technology, ability to create your own path of specialty whether it be renderings, space planning, detailing, construction documents or a mix of all. I enjoy the creative people I work with and the design process. It's fun to see where you started and where you end up on each idea, each process, and each project.
Cons: The management can be tough, the hours can be unforgiving, the pay is typically lower that expected/desired. Lots of time sitting at a computer. Though a creative industry, depending on your firm size and management type you may never really get to push your own creative ideas out the door. That is the most depressing thing when you are a highly creative person.
