ASID CT Student Launch 2017

Student Launch was held on April 13th at the University of New Haven. Student participation was unsurpassed this year thanks to the efforts of our Student Representatives to the Board, Kristine Firine. Kristin received outstanding support from John Arabolos, Assistant Professor, Department of Art and Design and from Cassie Charles, graduating senior in Interior Design at University of New Haven. Thank you to all three and to the University of New Haven.

Student Launch is an ASID CT sponsored event to support the Interior Design students in Connecticut Universities and Colleges. Each year, we honor our students and help them transition from education to be an emerging professional in all related fields to interior design. We offer an event that includes interaction with professional designers and industry partners, portfolio review, networking with professionals in all design related fields and an inspirational speaker targeting to the emerging professional.

Our keynote speaker for the 2017 Student Launch was Elizabeth von Lehe, Director - Strategy, Brand and Architectural Design at ICRAVE in New York City. Known for creative, high-energy environments that actively engage visitors, ICRAVE has mastered the art of experience design in a wide range of architecture and interior design projects, melding operational, digital and physical elements across a spectrum of diverse spaces. Elizabeth was inspirational and gave the interior design students a view into the future of design that is actually occurring at this moment, highly sought after by each adopter clients and creating new paths in interior design. Thank you Elizabeth von Lehe and ICRAVE.
