Ivy at Las Vegas Market
This summer at Las Vegas Market, Ivy joined the Soft Design Lab and Abbyson in a panel discussing technology utilization and community building in the design world. Ivy Co-Founder Lee Rotenberg, Jackie Von Tobel and Deb Barrett of Soft Design Lab, and Kelli Ellis and Joseph Haecker of Abbyson raved about the power of harnessing your connections with fellow designers to build design collectives, design tribes if you will, to exchange insight, ask questions and share resources. As a member of the design community, it’s crucial to tap into your network of supporters, collaborators, and suppliers to help you navigate the new world of design.
There’s always something new to learn from a fellow designer, from navigating design dilemmas and managing client expectations to building trade relationships. A well-seasoned designer can learn from a new designer, perhaps how to tackle the e-design world or social media marketing. An established designer can advise new designers on product mark-ups, trade-only vendors, and other industry secrets. Each individual designer has unique knowledge that others are eager to know about. As a member of the design community, it’s in your best interest to have the self-confidence to share your experience – your story feeds into the larger knowledge exchange at hand to empower the industry at large.
Here at Ivy, we’re more than just a software. Our mission is to provide interior designers with the community, resources and tools needed to manage your business beautifully. Are you searching for a business management tool to help streamline your workflow as an interior designer?
