Software for Interior Designers by Lauren Li from Sisalla

  • Sisalla (Level 1, enter via Snowball Lane) 409 Chapel Street South Yarra, VIC, 3141 Australia (map)

The reality is, as designers we aren’t swanning around showrooms and zhuzh-ing cushions all day long. We spend A LOT of time in-front of a screen. We create our design concepts digitally, source our suppliers and even find inspiration online. The tools we use to design and run our business are so important to working efficiently and professionally. Software is always changing, and we have tried our fair-share of what is out there. This session gives you an introduction on software to design and present your concepts, from 3D visualisations and 2D documentation, to creating a polished design concept that will impress your clients. We also explore software to run your business including software to send design proposals to your client, creating purchase orders, managing supplier details and invoicing software. No more excel spreadsheets!
In this session, we cover two categories: design and management software. Each software is demonstrated on a screen and open to discussion. We have some exciting programs that we know will change the way you run your business, as they have changed ours. 

What’s Included: 
One months access to the Sessions Facebook Group where you can ‘ask me anything’ 
A delicious ‘Ladro’ pizza lunch (please advise of dietary requirements), wine (let’s get creative!), and complementary all day tea and refreshments from our apartment kitchen.
