Starting in October! Join Us for Our Fall Quarter No-Cost Interior Design Seminars!

We are happy to announce the continuation of our no-cost one day online educational and personal development seminars in the Fall 2020 quarter. These seminars are free to all and completely online, so please join us for the following:

Form Over Function: The Tension Between Striking Interior Design and Livability Part I (Early 20th Century through Mid-Century Modern)

Description: This course is an overview of the eternal tension between designs that make an aesthetic statement and designs that actually respect how they will be used by the people who have to live with them. The course is a humorous and entertaining stroll through the history of interior architecture, interior design, furnishings, and accessories that examines how the desire to make a statement often results in designs that are uncomfortable, unusable, or outright dangerous.

Date: Saturday, October 10, 2020 Time: 10:00 am (PST) – 11:30 am (PST)

Sketching for Designers – Techniques On How To Create A Fast and Precise Sketch

Description: All great ideas start with a sketch. It is a dialogue that depicts our imagination and helps us through the creative design process. A quick initial sketch helps solve any complex computer generated detail. Sketching is a great tool to communicate with our clients; it helps us sort through different ideas very fast, and it is a universal journal that is understood and welcomed by all.

Date: Saturday, November 7, 2020 Time: 1:00 pm (PST) –3:00 pm (PST)

ASID Pasadena Chapter to Host Online Student Portfolio Review on Friday, September 4th!

Please join the ASID Pasadena Chapter on Friday, September 4th for a student portfolio review!

During the review, there will be several interior designers, industry partners, and student peers on the same Zoom meeting for a diverse range of critique and Q&A. You will have the opportunity to:
• present your digital portfolio of design from studio projects
• speak about your work and design philosophy
• talk about any past experience in design
• discuss what your future goals are
• why you wish to be an interior designer

Select up to ten of your best and most creative works from your interior design courses, internships, and personal professional work, and organize them in a digital format (PDF or website). Work that you consider incomplete, not design-related, or does not show off your best craftsmanship should not be included in the portfolio. Resumes are welcome to be included as well. This is an opportunity to show off your talents and get your foot in the door for prospective internships and job openings.


To RSVP, please email STUDENTREP@CAPAS.ASID.ORG by Thursday, September 3rd. Be sure to include your name, name of interior design school, contact info, and expected graduation date. You will receive a Zoom meeting number just before the event.
