What do we love as an interior designer? Without a doubt, project. A project gets us money and diplomatically say, it enriches our experience, broadens our creativity, and definitely adds more pages to our dear portfolio. Even better if we work on an interior of a place that is owned by renowned ‘someone’, namely our dream project.
What’s your dream project? Selah.
Let’s say that you have your own bubble of wish now, you definitely don’t just stay in bed, do you? We hope you don’t….but if you do, wake up at this very second and start planning on how to make the dream happen. That’s the first step to reach your dream: wake up.
Thereafter, the big question is: ‘HOW’, and to that end, we want to tell something that you’ve undoubtedly already guessed even from the very first sentence you read on this post—project pitching. This is the second step: find the ‘how’.
Finding the ‘how’ is relatively easy since it’s just a click away now, and voila, you’re now reading a blog that can help you to know more about the interior design world. However, IOOR Studio doesn’t letter to you anything like how to win a project pitching or 10 ways to pitch remarkably before the potential client. Otherwise, we want to let you know what you shouldn’t present on a project pitching.
First, don’t present the 3D of your design.
Second, don’t present the 3D of your design.
Last, don’t present the 3D of your design.
Boom! Do you get it? It’s not fair for you, dear interior designers. What you present on a project pitching should be just as far as a design concept, such as mood board. You may also tell them more about your style and show it through a portfolio or company profile.
On the side note, to the one who holds the project pitching, it’s not fair for the interior designer if you ask more than a design concept. Because, we’re not a contractor, where you can compare what they sell to you. An idea shouldn’t be measured that way.
Therefore, the title of this blog should actually be “Why You Shouldn’t Join a Project Pitching”, dear interior designers. Having a dream project is one thing and you can achieve it someday with your awe-exceptional concept. But, a project pitching isn’t the best way to reach the dream, because your idea is something that’s immeasurable!
Nevertheless, if you still want to join a project pitching, never ever present the 3D of your design. We’ve told you four times, may the force be with you!
Letter to you later,
