Friday, March 25, 1:00-3:00
W.T. Young Auditorium
This Design Chat will feature three recent UK/CoD Interior Design graduates who will discuss their divergent professional paths.
Brittany Davidson LEED AP '06
Upon graduation Davidson moved to Atlanta, GA to work for the multi-disciplinary commercial design firm, Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates, Inc. During her four years there, she was described as a “triple threat” – excelling in design, technical, and management paths. Davidson joined the 'Design Atelier'
Amberlee Isabella LEED AP'07
Isabella also moved to Atlanta, Georgia to work for Gensler. She works in the 'Lifestyle Studio,' which focuses on retail, hospitality, mixed-use and brand identity design. She is also pursuing her MA in Graphic Design at Savannah College of Art and Design.
In 2009, she was honored as a finalist in Mannington Commercial’s 'Tx:Style International Design Competition' and debuted her own line of carpet at NeoCon. She also traveled to NeoCon in 2010 as a featured speaker on IIDA’s Career Boot Camp Panel.
Renée Conde, LEED AP '07
In 2009, Conde returned from teaching and studying in Germany to accept her current position at Alltech, a global biotechnology company in Lexington, KY. As a member of Alltech’s Corporate Design team, Conde has worked on numerous projects around the country and overseas, traveling to sites in China, England, and most recently, Belgium.
Although she enjoys working abroad, Renée considers the most monumental project of her career to be one much closer to home--the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Designing for one of the largest international sporting events in the world was an incredible personal and professional experience that Conde will not soon forget.
Conde is also pursuing her MA in Interior Design at the University of Kentucky College of Design.
