Meet Brittany Craig ’18, interior designer for Desmone Architects.
Tell us about the work you do.
As a commercial interior designer, I work on spaces including but not limited to the following: office buildings, restaurants, cafes (hospitality spaces) and multi-family housing.
How did the interior design major at La Roche prepare you for your career?
The interior design curriculum simulated real-life workplace experiences, easing the transition from college to the workforce. With required internships, it was imperative to gain hands-on experience. Through this, I was able to land a full-time job right out of college.
What kind of impact did La Roche have on you as a person outside of your career?
La Roche’s close-knit community allowed me to feel and be heard. I was able to take this confidence and carry it into everyday life, especially through my career to continue my success as a respected designer in Pittsburgh.
What advice do you have for current students?
Proceed and be bold.
