Can you be sustainable with your Furniture and Appliances on a budget?April 19, 2022
With ambitious plans for the future, we’ve been meticulously handpicking staff to join the team because we fully understand that our company and our future projects will only be as good as our people. We’re keen to keep pushing ourselves with new ideas and techniques, so selecting the right people for the Design Team is particularly key.
This week, we caught up with our newest addition: Junior Designer Intern, Emily Abram.
Hi Emily! Welcome. Let’s start with a little bit of background about yourself. Tell us about your family.
My dad is in the army and my mum is a Sports Psychologist. I move around a lot because of my dad’s career, I have lived in 16 houses and 5 countries. I have a younger brother and sister who are 18 and we are 13 months apart in age. Since I was 9 I have gone to boarding school, I now live and go to Kingston University.
So you left the family home and went to study at Kingston university, what are you studying?
I am studying Interior Design.
We are learning about different layouts and how a space can work in different ways. I am also working with the design team at Apteriors, learning how buildings are laid out internally with all the different furniture types designed to make the most of the space.
What have you enjoyed working on the most so far and what do you hope to gain from he role?
I love working with the team and getting involved with the projects, everyone is lovely, and it feels like a big family. I like my role and feel like I’m learning a lot from watching the others.
My main responsibilities are updating product specification documents, ensuring we find the best products, checking and uploading projects for the project team, changing project details, and making sure everything is up to date at each design stage.
So far, I’ve enjoyed getting a better understanding of InDesign since I know the basics, and I would love to feel more confident when using it. I also like that the work I’m doing is in line with my university core subjects, the more I work with the design programmes such as InDesign and Revit, I can improve my work and learn a lot.
And were looking forward to seeing what’s in store for you in the coming months. It’s great to have you, Emily, thanks for your time.
No worries, its been fun!
A BIT OF FUN
Ok, Emily, this is the fun bit. It’s a quick-fire round so tell us the first thing that comes to your mind. No over-thinking! Ready, Steady, Go..
