How do you benefit from your ISFD Membership?
“Comradarie. Contacts. Education. Inspiration. Pride.”
“As one of ISFD’s founding members I am always inspired by this organizations ability to help young emerging designers establish and support themselves using its knowledge, networking, information and mentoring.”
“By far, the greatest benefit is networking with one’s peers, particularly with rapidly changing technology and shifting retail channels.”
“As an educator, I can bring ideas and trends into the classroom. I can offer students opportunities to engage in furniture design in a real way, connecting with local professionals in critiques, design competitions and internships. As a designer, I learn what my colleagues are up to and what furniture manufacturers are looking for. And I find inspiration in emerging furniture designs and the industry at large.”
“I often lean on our society for referrals, references, as well as discussions with co-members about hardware and software that makes the work flow better.”
“I benefit through my students and the opportunities that are made available to them. The scholarships and design competitions are excellent. They showcase student talents and provide a stage to promote our program.”
