Kitchen Designs That Are Both Beautiful and Practical

Posted on 25 Jan, 2019

The beginning of the year is a popular time to look at home renovations for the year ahead with kitchens and bathrooms as prime targets. Today we turn our focus to the world of kitchen design, an exciting area which demands high levels of aesthetics and design coupled with practicality.

Kitchen Designer Overview

A kitchen designer typically specialises in all elements of the kitchen area. This could be in residential properties, restaurants, schools and offices. You will be working with clients in discussing products, materials, colours, styles and lighting whilst advising them on layouts and space planning, suitable fitted and freestanding furniture and often presenting 3D visuals using CAD software.

Wallpaper Designs to Suit Every Space

Posted on 11 Jan, 2019

Using statement wallpaper is one way to change the look of a space, be it in your home, a coffee shop or a hotel, and there are plenty of amazing designs to choose from. Whether you want something simple and muted, bold and bright or classy and elegant, there's something for everyone.

The first recorded use of wallpaper was in China in 200 B.C. when the Chinese first glued rice paper to walls. When the craze moved to Europe only the wealthy could afford to commission artisans to create their designs via hand painting or the use of stencils. Luckily with the advent of the printing press they became more widely available and now modern printing technology allows us a huge array of choices in pattern, texture and ... Continue reading >

Land Your Dream Design Job in 2019

Posted on 07 Jan, 2019

The end of one year and the beginning of another is a great time to take stock of what you have achieved and what your goals are for the future. As 2018 has ended, it’s worth pausing to reassess where you are on your career journey and start looking at how you’d like to progress this year.

If you’re thinking about pushing your career forward in 2019, it can help to assess your current situation and future goals. Identifying and leveraging your skills to employers is key, so try writing a list of your skills and areas where you excel. It can be difficult to recognise your own strengths as they are often qualities you take for granted, so try to identify examples of tasks you enjoyed or found easy, as well as abilities that helped you achieve notable goals.

Create a Scandinavian Look for Christmas 2018

Posted on 14 Dec, 2018

The Nordic influence has infiltrated many aspects of our life. Its inspiration can be seen in our clothing, television, food and lifestyles but the impact it has had on the interior design world has been huge. As we approach the holidays you may be considering putting a new spin on your traditional Christmas decor by incorporating this year’s Scandinavian Christmas trend.

Some of us in the office here at Careers in Design have been thinking about using this theme to decorate our own homes this year. We then thought we'd like to share these ideas on how to capture a little Scandinavian magic in your home over the festive period.

Light Up

Lighting is one of the biggest features to use to incorporate the Nordic look. Simple, soft lighting will create a gentl... Continue reading >

Winter Interior Design Trends

Posted on 30 Nov, 2018

Looking at the Autumn/Winter 2018 design trends we see both new ones emerging and many existing styles still popular.  The team at Careers in Design is always interested to see what are the key trends and would encourage all designers to talk about current and future trends and your own thoughts during an interview if the subject comes up. This then gave us the idea to gather information on some of the most exciting trends and see how you could incorporate them into design projects this season.

Enchanting Dark Shades

Colours for the Autumn/Winter portfolio are normally darker than the first half of the year, but for 2018 they take on a magical feel with deep plum, crimson and navy creating a luxurious and cosy atmosphere. To take this colour trend to another level... Continue reading >

Redecorate Your Social Media Profile for Job Hunting

Posted on 23 Nov, 2018

In the digital age, your first impression is made long before you enter the interview room.

The first seven seconds of a meeting used to be seen as the crucial window to make an impression. While seven seconds might seem an impossibly tiny window (and some research suggests even this is too long), you can make an impression long before the interview, and use this to clinch the job you want.

How? By getting your social media profile perfect.

Clean Up Your Social Media CV

92% of companies use social media for recruiting, and those numbers are only climbing. Looking up a candidate online is now a common step in the recruitment process, and recruiters can use any information they find about you online as grounds to cast your application aside.
