Interior Designers are Creative & Technical Problem-Solvers

They work with their clients to develop design solutions of all scales that are safe, functional, healthy, and attractive. Combining practical skills and knowledge, interior designers impact the human experience and transform lives. Interior designers share conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and humancentric design to social responsibility, well- being, and sustainability. There are currently 66,500 interior designers in the U.S. and the industry is expected to grow by five percent over the next ten years. The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is a community of professionals who believe in the power of interior design to improve the human experience. With more than more than 25,000 members, we serve to unite people who share the belief and seek collaboration with those working to promote the value of interior design.

Career Stage Development

While interior designers may specialize in a specific market sector or type of firm, there are skill sets and knowledge that will benefit each stage of an interior designer’s career. ASID provides learning opportunities at each career stage with in-person events allowing interior designers with various backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to learn together or online via self-paced modules on the ASID Academy. ASID also celebrates the accomplishments of interior designers throughout their careers through Awards and Competitions.

Students are those currently enrolled in an interior design education program and preparing to take on the first steps in their careers. ASID provides opportunities for students to navigate their careers and enhance their understanding of the impact of design on people and their environments through programs such as SCALE: The ASID National Student Summit. Students attending SCALE engage with subject matter experts, their peers, and design firm leaders to launch their career path. ASID Student Chapter Awards are given to outstanding student members and chapters. From the ASID National Student Portfolio Competition to ASID Foundation scholarships, this is the place to start making your mark.
Interior designers within +/-5 years of professional practice are considered emerging professionals where they begin to define their career. Upon entering mid-career, interior designers begin to refine their career and focus their work. During these career stages, the interior designer’s path is self-defined with opportunities to pursue advanced education, certifications, and specialties.
Those who are leading a design firm or company are considered principals, partners, and owners. Interior designers within this career stage are leading organizations and shaping the future of the profession. Responsibilities within this career stage include balancing the future vision with the daily demands of the firm or company.

Impact of Design

The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and humancentric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal.
