During my experience at Anne Haimes Interiors, I got to work within a high end deign studio based in Henley-On-Thames. Working within this design studio allowed me to learn quickly how to handle clients and engage with a design team effectively.

I improved my Auto CAD, Sketch up and Photoshop skills to a high level of professionalism.
