ABI Profile: Jackie Lou
is a recent grad from University of Technology Sydney where she was majoring in Interior Architecture. Jackie did an internship at TO Interior Design in the Spring of 2021.
"I was placed as a Junior Interior Designer at T.O. Interior Design. They specialize in commercial, hospitality, and residentially design in projects all over Europe."
"Mainly working alongside CEO Theresa Obermoser and Senior Interior Designer Deborah Josepovici, I was given responsibility over a few of our most recent projects – our new Notting Hill showroom, a residential decorating project also in Notting Hill, and an upcoming villa in Bordeaux, France. In these projects I was responsible for creating drawings and issue sheets, create FFE Schedules showing the materials and potential furniture we would need to source, and contacting suppliers and companies around Europe."
One of Jackie's design work
"This internship has definitely laid the most concrete foundations for my career as I was able to learn first hand the processes involved in the world of interior architecture. I was made to learn new software and new concepts as I worked through the project – this was definitely the best way for me to learn!"
Jackie during her internship
"Artbound Initiative gave me incredible guidance throughout my entire journey. The moments leading up to landing an internship and moving overseas were the most crucial, and they were definitely helpful during this. Everything from assessing my portfolio, to focusing on my interview skills, and even just helping me realize what my main goals are for my career were little stepping stones that lead to my success in my internship placement."
