Real World Design Week (RWDW) is here again! The American Society of Interior Designers promotes this event geared at pairing interior design students with design professionals. RWDW allows an interior design student to experience a typical day in the interior design field, by shadowing a professional for a day. Part of that experience can include; visiting working construction sites, attending client meetings, discussions with contractors and clients, looking for materials and really getting a sense of how projects come together. It also gives the student an opportunity to ask questions directly to a designer. I am really looking forward to having a student shadow me for a day again this year.
