Architecture is the design, development and construction of a building. It is a complex process which must provide both for a client’s needs and a responsible use of materials and technology.   Communication is a key factor for a successful outcome and, therefore, it is important to have someone who is both knowledgeable of local practices and fluent in English.

Graphic design creates visual solutions to communication problems. It uses color, images, typography and layout to visually represent an idea or message to a target audience. Graphic design is most commonly used for branding (logos, identity design), websites, publications (newsletters, magazines), and advertisements.

Interior design is a multi-faceted profession in which creative and technical solutions are applied within a structure to achieve a built interior environment. These solutions are functional, enhance the quality of life and culture of the occupants and are aesthetically attractive. Designs are created in response to and coordinated with the building shell and acknowledge the physical location and social context of the project. Designs must adhere to code and regulatory requirements, and encourage the principles of environmental sustainability. The interior design process follows a systematic and coordinated methodology, including research, analysis and integration of knowledge into the creative process, whereby the needs and resources of the client are satisfied to produce an interior space that fulfills the project goals.

Web design includes both the graphic design and technical elements of creating a web presence for an individual or an organization.  Individual websites can usually be created quickly and relatively inexpensively, whereas larger organizational sites take more time and sometimes require complex custom design and programming.

Real estate staging involves color consulting, floor planning, accessorizing, editing or adding to existing furnishings, and producing an appealing interior and/or exterior for an inviting “move in” environment for potential renters or buyers.
