Sonja Chandre

As an emerging Designer in a very competitive field I have learned to separate myself and make myself stand out from others. Some things I have worked on to make myself stand out from other Designers is my work in SketchUp. I have also practiced my hand drafting and hand rendering, I have gotten it to a point where I am comfortable with it now. I am also very good at creating mood boards and creating color schemes. I love to create residential interiors that are visually appealing as well as structurally sound. I have created a personal mission statement to push myself to work harder as well as show others my strengths and how I am working towards making my weaknesses stronger. My personal mission statement is “Express my designs through SketchUp models, show clients my thoughts on their interiors by creating informative and beautiful mood boards, and I will be able to sketch my thoughts right in front of my clients. I will work on making my Auto CAD skills stronger so I am able to send layouts to Architects properly. These will help me to become a more well-rounded designer.”

Demand for interior designers is strongest in kitchen and bath design and remodeling, and in corporate and industrial facilities design.
