In a hundred words or less
This is how we see it: you’re a designer with some experience. While you don’t know everything—and, to your credit, you know you don’t know everything— you’re looking for room to learn, a chance to handle deeper responsibilities, and an opportunity to show off your stuff. You know people can depend on you to deliver great design while meeting the practicalities of a budget and schedule. You may also be growing your technical knowledge as well, wanting to explore a combined designer-project architect role or looking to further your experience as a lead interiors project designer. This is where we come in. We at Mancini can make your strivings towards something better a reality. We can show you how.
Does this sound like you?
At Mancini, designers with four to seven years under their belt are given juicier chances to prove themselves. They contribute a significant share to the overall design and execution of their projects, and above all, assume greater responsibility for their ultimate success, working face-to-face with clients and directing the efforts of junior designers as they learn the ropes. Mancini designers don’t just have a great eye for design, but the ability to create a cohesive concept that can be seen in every detail of the final execution. Further, a great design ability only goes so far without good communication. So, we’re also looking for designers with a flair for expression, an ability to put design concepts in words, in sketches, in a plan—and increasingly, in an interactive three-dimensional virtual space.
A day in the life
An Intermediate Project Designer’s responsibilities vary throughout the day and on each project. They vary by phase of the project, too, but generally they include things like:
- Amass and interpret programmatic information, and compile it into a document that drives a project
- Lead presentation prep, guiding team members so they are well-rehearsed and on the same page
- Develop visual materials that help a client absorb a design concept and, through their feedback, become an active participant in the project
- Prepare test-fits, stock and block diagrams, and coded furniture plans
- Select furniture, finishes, and fixtures
- Conduct research throughout the course of a project, from meeting with vendors or coordinating code issues with the Project Architect, to digging up important facts about a site’s historical context or a company’s brand history
- Work with the Project Architect to develop contract drawings and assist in guiding juniors in their production; indeed, designers at the intermediate level should be capable of creating a full set of drawings, if given enough time. For the interior designers out there, this would relate to interiors projects only.
- Work alongside a senior designer and a creative director, who are looking to impart their wisdom
