Question 3 of 28
Do you find working with teams in interior design is better or worse than working alone?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I believe working in teams is better than working alone because it gives you a chance to expand an idea you may have into something better.
2.
Much better, the collaborative process creates the strongest design, different people have different strengths, bring them together to make one cohesive unit.
3.
I believe there is room for both. Working with a team can be exhilarating and the creative process intensifies exponentially with multiple opinions. Working alone allows you the flexibility to exercise your own potential for the project.
4.
Working with team is good you get different ideas one idea is always better than many. But ofcourse one need alone time also to think and impliment the things well.
5.
I feel better in working in team rather than working alone.
6.
Better. For problem solving, design solutions, experience on real world, perspective.
7.
I feel its better working all with team members. Working along with team may discuss about work along with all team member because each person having some creativity mind.
8.
Honestly, I haven't had much team design experience, but my initial feeling is that it depends on the client and their project.
9.
I can work either way. I do enjoy working in a team and seeing other designers take on the same project and the direction it should go.
10.
I feel like it'sa little bit both, good because we can bounce ideas off each other and could create a great conclusion and bad would be a possibility of stronger personalities and hitting heads. It really just depends on who your partner is.
11.
I never worked before, but I think working with teams is good to gain more knowledge and experience then working alone.
12.
Depending on the designers, I believe teams work best to deliver the best results for the clients. Come projects work with working alone but a good design team will deliver an excellent project.
13.
I think team work is very important depends. Because. When working in team,I will get to learn from each other but if working alone I will have to solve every problems on my own and I need to be more independent.
14.
I find collaborative work can be so rewarding to the final product, working in a team enables you to bounce ideas off each other, find creative solutions to design problems, effective time management and also allocating tasks to the most suitable person rather than having one person complete it, produces a better outcome.
15.
It depends with the team members but I do believe that each member in a team always has something unique about them that I can learn from them hence making the work easier and interesting.

I did this pretty often when I was working retail. I find, people in retail slack off a lot. It's not a career for most people and they don't take the job very seriously. They do exactly as they're told and nothing more. But sometimes I see a system doesn't make sense and the managers will tell me literally to just do it even if it's not right so they could have me working on something. Well I like to speak up in those situations if I have a better solution. When I worked retail, I came up with a bunch of ideas on how to make stock-work quicker. Most of them got shut down but I did a lot of it anyway and I got away with saving an hour or two sometimes on tasks. I think it's important to have an opinion sometimes when you know your idea is way more efficient and better in everyway.

I worked for a company where the owners are foreign and are not that familiar with the work ethics in the United States. They took it upon themselves to deduct from my hours worked 30 minutes for a lunch, as well as, deducting hours for holidays. Being an hourly employee, lunches and holidays time was not included in the reported time worked. I contact the accountant in charge and well as the owners to explain what they are doing is illegal. I explained that they need to reimburse me for all that time and they did. They also stopped deducting time from hourly employees.

In being an early childhood educator, building relationships with the families was paramount as well the well being of the student and peers.

In yearbook I was the layout editor and I was having to grade the my fellow classmates work. This could get especially difficult because I wasn't the teacher and was not necessarily much older than they were - so it seemed like I had less authority so my approach needed to be effective.

I get the client motivated and excited about an upcoming project by throwing out potential ideas for the space and expressing my excitement of how amazing the final product will be when it is done. It is important because you want them to be looking forward to this design process they are about undergo and that their money will be well spent.

It was brought to my attention by a professor that we are one of the only professions that would like to get paid before we even begin work - and thats why it is important to get the client to see the vision you are seeing. You get them excited by showing them exactly what you are going to do through well designed, interactive presentations and models.

I actually give design proposals that they really want so they will be excited to continue doing the project with me. Like what I said I want the client satisfaction.

I can motivate them by showing our previous bests and dat may cause better impression on us. And friendly approval may get more connection.

I think material selection actually is very hard. I am strong at picking furniture but when it comes time to selecting which leather would look good on this furniture and theres 300 choices, I just get abit overwhelmed.

For me, the hardest subject was English. I was never confident and have struggled to express myself verbally in greater depth. Because of this, I did not have the courage or confidence in presenting and delivering my ideas and company during lessons. I feel that this lack of confidence has hindered me for a long time whenever I had to be analytical or evaluative in my work which had an impact in my way of understanding and expressing my designs to others.

There wasn't a particular subject, but the studio that was challenging was my first collaborative project. We all were students that were used to working independently and at our own schedule with our personal design in mind. Now with this we were challenged to work together and for a client.

Probably drawing because it takes a lot of time and effort to finish a project.

I would have to say history was difficult for me in school, I am a hands on learner and love to be involved... History was too slow paced for me. In design school, surveying the landsite was challenging, I think it was just a hard area for me to be creative in.

I wouldn't say there was a hardest subject, as they were all equally challenging in their own ways, and being able to adapt to find a way to revise those certain topics was hard but once I did one the others were easy to learn.

I actually work BEST under pressure. Without pressure, I can get lazy sometimes. Like if I know I could do a project in 8 hours, I might save it for the last 8 hours unless I know I have 7 other projects to finish then I'll get it done immediately and keep moving forward. I once spent 72 hours straight working on projects partly because of procrastination but I literally slept maybe 6 hours in the 72 hours.

Brainstorming with a team is the first step to a successful projects, as sharing ideas can push you to a better result.
2.
I listen more than I speak. But I feel when I speak I accumulate all ideas and build upon them. I do use some of their creative momentum to build upon.
3.
I feel I collaborate really well, I would always put opinions out there to the team, it could be something they hadnt thought about so it would always be helpful to state different ideas. However if I felt that another team members ideas where better I would agree and maybe suggest something to mix it up a bit.

Collaboration is Key when working in a team. When I worked with Steelcase they fostered an entire program based on those ideals. It is proven that a collaborative workspace is guaranteed to provide success.

We are working through an issue right now as a matter of fact, there was a broadloom carpet being custom colored. The set up fee was not favorable but I justified the cost associated, how it would benefit the properties guests and more importantly how it would benefit his pocket book.
3.
I handled this by asking the questions on what the client would like and I would change the design to satisfy the customer. Throughout being very calm and understanding of the situation.
4.
It was very hard to digest, becuse you have wasted your time and efforts for work . But no worries will be back with bang with new design as per his mood.
5.
I ask them what they like or what they want and make something new and better out of it.

One particular client was being picky with one of the wallpapers chosen. She gave us ideas which we thought may not work with the design. So we compromised and met in the middle.

Corefit was one of my longest projects I had to work on. I worked on just the logo portion for 10 weeks maybe. Close to 10 or even more weekly meetings. I probably brought about 200 ideations in total by the end or more even. A lot of my ideas just weren't going through with them and although by the 7th 8th week I was getting frustrated, I always put up a smile and brought in 10-12 new ideations. Eventually I would go home and make ideations and email them as soon as I made a few getting direct responses for each idea. But I never give up on my clients. If they don't like it, I take it as being my fault for not analyzing and researching my client correctly and I keep bringing new ideas until they like it. Until they are fully satisfied because that's what brings return clients. That's what makes clients refer us to more clients to, that extra mile.
11.
I fixed it right away. People should always be happy with your designs and what you do for them even if that means you don't agree you change it.

First we have what made him upset . And we have to ask him type a design we want, whet hes needs in that design.
13.

There will always be some sort of disagreement, however there can also be compromises if the two designs work together.
4.
I am a very reasonable person and I take everyones personal perspective in mind. I personnaly have never run into this problem but I am confident that a resolution can be achieved.
5.

My partner wanted to add way too many colorful things to a somewhat monochromatic design. The elements she wanted to use weren't suitable for the atmosphere, I had felt. So we discussed alternatives and came to common grounds as to what should be done.
7.
I have this happen quite a lot because I tend to think of some really experimental ideas sometimes. But again, I like to take a step back when this happens and just sort've see everything at a bigger picture. Almost like im a third party looking at the ideas. If I sometimes feel the team member has put more time and effort into their idea although I think in my head my idea is better, I'd let my idea go and instead find ways to integrate my idea into their idea. I think partner to partner respect goes a long way.
8.
Talk with team members find out problems take ideas from them because other will judge us moor then my self . All ways be with team member.
9.

Every design has always been different.

When given an example of a design from previous year, it become harder to create a design that will not clash in some aspects from that design. I made sure to create different sets of design that I can weigh up its pros and combine them to produce another design that will e separate it away from becoming similar or the same.
13.
Clashing opinions are inevitable, it is the reaction of the team members that is crucial. All opinions are of value, so to create an environment where all statements are safe.

10.
People with unreasonable expectations while providing limited resources (clients with small budgets wanting high end design and materials) Trying to communicate with people that have unfair reasoning is difficult. Hard to compromise with.
11.
I find people who are deeply rooted in their opinions are the most difficult to listen to. Because they are unable to see things a different way even when it is necessary to do so. This because a very challenging position to be in when they are wrong. Your options become listening to them and falling, or struggling against them, stumbling and making it without proper recognition.
12.
Bad Attitude Very dificult to Manage.
13.
People with a very narrow perspective which limits their imagination roof to become so trendy and lack of specialty.
14.
The ones who aren't sure of what they want. It could send me in a swirl of jumbled thoughts.
15.
I think the most difficult people to listen to can sometimes be clients. Often because they don't have that design knowledge you do but they always want to design things themselves too. But at the end of the day, I think design is a collaboration between the designer and the client. So sometimes you just have to dumb your idea down or you have to make the changes your clients make. Sometimes its heartbreaking but what can you do, they're the client, they have to look at the design everyday, they have to live with the design so make them what they want even if you don't agree. But I would definitely let them know my honest opinion, just they always have the final say.

I've always been a fan of clean, modern interiors. I'm a person of details, I enjoy designs that have perfect dimensions, 0 flaws, very clean, very simple and strong ideas. What I dislike is when there is too much ideas or too much going on. Sometimes post-modern design can be like this. Or if gothic-revival/ victorian-revival is done wrong, I find design gets cluttered and its something I dislike. I also don't like mixing too many styles. Like I'm a fan of modern styles with minor gothic revival details but if yuo add a victorian revival style in there too, I'm not a fan. I think theres too much going on in that case...
6.

Heavy traditional, with puddling drapery and extremely ornate furnishings.

I do not have a particular design style that I dislike but rather I feel that every design styles are different and it is most definitely based on the individual and their way of interpreting and visualising the concept.
9.
Dark, low natural light, and hard to clean materials, creating a sense of dis-function which can lead to a stressful lifestyle.
10.
You know each style has its own merits. But I don't like spaces that are overdressed. Gaudy to say.
11.
I like all of the styles, but one I like the least is modernized white. Its too simple, I think it would need some pops of color. But if that is what the client wants, then I will do that for them.
12.
Use of brown color in every design so as to come up with an earthly look.
13.
I actually do not have a style I dislike. I am still learning and experimenting with different design styles but I usually go for clean and geometric design as I have a bit of ocd, I want everything to be aligned and clean.
14.
Surrealism, I realize this style is not that practical.

I respect all design eras I think its important to respect all aspects of design processes and styles.
