The Project Connect DP&E website, www.projectconnectdpe.org, houses short web-based videos of design professionals talking about what it is like to work in the field. The mission of Project Connect DP&E, “working to connect design practice with education,” is to connect design students to design practice through web-based video. We particularly aim to reach university-level Interior Design students as well as high school students and career changers considering Interior Design as a profession.

The time and information that professionals participating in this project have shared is invaluable and has made a significant impact on our next generation of designers.” Read the full article on the IIDA Professional blog, DesignMatters, here.
