John Perez from Hota Design Studio attended the IIDA North Florida Chapter’s Professional Panel Discussion at FSU October 10th, 2012. IIDA North Florida Chapter (NFC) presents this panel discussion at all the Universities and State Colleges that teach interior design. The panel of speakers encompassed professional designers who represented various design backgrounds. Attending the FSU event were Rachel Simmons (Residential Interior Designer who also teaches at AI Jacksonville) Susan Davies (Interior Designer and Director of Sales and Marketing at IFS Business Interiors) Stephanie Irwin (Designer at Gresham Smith & Partners, a large Design and Architecture firm) and John Perez (Interior Design Principal and Small Business owner). There were more than 50 students in attendance for the event. Students had the opportunity to ask questions to the panel about the design profession and or anything they had in mind dealing with interior design. IIDA NFC and IFS Business Interiors were the main sponsors of the event with raffle prizes for the students. Thank you FSU for being a great host to us. We loved the questions and look forward to visiting your campus again soon.
