Chatting with designer, Lara Whitt
My family is filled with dentists, research doctors, nurses, civil engineer, nuclear engineer and medical specialists. We naturally are critical thinkers. I received my degree in Industrial Design with a minor in Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University Design Department. I fell in love with critical designing. When I graduated, the first job I received was designing CADs for an exhibit house, Skyline Displays and Graphics.
I enjoy helping others solve design problems. This requires me to be a quick-learner, take initiative, be a critical thinker, step out of comfort zones, be accountable and be dedicated to the task at hand.
Design services are based on an hourly rate. An estimate is provided before work begins. Creative services include:
I am available to travel for installations at my daily rate. However, I do not see the need for this added expense. Every project has detail drawings and build details so that with proper on-site supervision can successfully install and dismantle my designs.
