What's Happening at DI:
Another DI Alum We're Proud Of!
At DI we sometimes meet students whose work we think may someday really impact others. One such student is Kristy Kropat, class of 2007. Two years after opening her own studio she's started winning awards and gotten featured in a range of publications. No wonder she's being sought after.

Let's walk through some of Kristy's early successes...! >>

Surviving the 1:2 Student Design Charette
"The first rule is 'Don't Panic'" said Ford Fairlane in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It was good advice for Gerald Bouvia and Phillip Dockery as they entered the AIA 1:2 Student Design Charette. Although words like "Overwhelming" and "Stressful" came up when recounting the event, both consider it to be among the best experiences they've had in their nascent interior design careers.

See why Phillip says "It was probably as close to real life as we're likely to get for the moment." >>

LIBRARIAN'S CORNER - Art from Around the World
DI's library makes every effort to be the one resource you can always turn to for research assistance, for specific design information or for those extra special volumes. That's why DI has acquired several exciting new books about art and architecture from other countries, all generously sized and fabulously illustrated.
