Designers of all experience levels will learn how to effectively market and sell their services in today’s economy. The fee is $2,500 which includes: guest speakers, breakfast, lunch, activities and a cocktail party. I would appreciate your feedback and also let me know if any of you are interested in participating?

Trading Places with Architectural Digest Magazine

It’s always so nice to see your work published in a prestigious magazine, shot by fame photographer, Pieter Estersohn  and written by a respected writer such as Dan Shaw. It concludes the long journey that a job takes from presentation, installation and then the icing on the cake, appearing in a magazine. A worthy journey to success within the pages of Architectural Digest June 2015 issue.
