Hong Kong interior Design Association (HKIDA) has launched a Logbook System for young designers
The new system gives young designers the opportunity to acquire professional knowledge and recognises dedicated professional members for their commitment to nuturing the younger generation of interior designers.
The system aims to link young interior designers with workplace mentors in order to enable them to acquire comprehensive professional knowledge in a systematic manner under the guidance of experienced professional designers. Among the HKIDA mentors for this system are design partners, design directors, creative directors whom are representing the local and international interior design firms.
Lasting for a period of 24 months, the system is open to Higher Diploma graduates with at least three years experience in interior design or interior design Bachelor's Degree graduates. The pilot scheme is designed by HKIDA and has currently recruited around 30 young interior designers to join as mentees.
Louisa Young, chairlady of membership of HKIDA and director of RIDA Project, added, "Mentors for this program, most of whom are HKIDA professional members and seasoned veterans in the field of interior design, will be able to provide young designers with guidance towards their professional development. This is absolutely necessary in this age where the public expects higher and higher professional standards for interior designers."
