Lifelong Learning in the Making

Our latest featured learner is a perfect example of the “always be learning” philosophy – she graduated design school last year and then jumped into INDEAL U to continue her learning journey with us.

“I’ve enjoyed getting to brush up on the codes I learned in school, as well as get real insight into the industry. It has made starting in the contract furniture business a lot less scary!”

Congrats to Hannah Klotzbach of Saxton for taking top honors as our Learner of the Month for December!

We asked Hannah how she sees herself applying her learnings to her role as a designer:

“I see it aiding in my client communication, as well as the considerations I make before specifying furniture or materials!”

Her favorite part of the INDEAL U program?

“My favorite part is the live sessions. I love getting to hear about current research and how that is affecting the future of our industry.”
