“Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
Commercial design consists of creating a functional but unique space plan using materials, textures, lighting and furniture that enhance the experience of the user. In addition, designers must keep building codes in mind for every aspect of their work. A space that encompasses a creative design will in turn attract users to the space and create a very appealing atmosphere whether it is in a restaurant, office or retail store. A good workplace environment promotes increased employee attendance, productivity and efficiency.
