Is there a good way to get into Interior Design from Retail Space Planning?
I graduated in 2006 with BA Interior Design, but from moving back into London to save money I was not able to find permenant design work.
I managed to get opportunities within Retail Space Planning, from both making displays in visual merchandising to drafting seasonal store plans. However, the transition from in-house space planning to store planning/retail design and interior design has not been an easy task.
I feel my skills have been pushed to one side in terms of creativity to focus on meeting business strategies. It has not been challenging and stimulating as originally hoped. Do you have any advice in making the big step to a career change?
