When Restaurant Design Associates (RDA) was looking for a new Intern to join its busy interior design team, Lucy immediately caught the company’s attention.
Graduating with a First-Class Degree in July 2017 from Northumbria University, Lucy’s diverse approach to design was something the company knew would be an asset to the team.
Not only has she fit straight into the role, impressing colleagues, she has also made an impact with clients with her innovative style and delivery, which is way beyond her short time in the industry.
Due to RDA’s diverse nature, Lucy has been able to get involved in every aspect of the design process, from conceptual responses, technical drawings and visualisation through to site visits, client interaction and communication between suppliers.
She has already successfully helped to produce two completed schemes: the second store for London-based Hej Coffee, which launched in Somerset House in January 2018 and Whitegates Garden Nursery in Northallerton in February 2018.
Lucy was able to help lead on both projects covering a variety of responsibilities such as the delivery of the visual package, production of technical drawings, material specification and liaising with both client and contractors. Whilst working on these she was also working on conceptual design packages for several other schemes including two major shipping container coffee shops.
She has hit the ground running and made the transition from education to industry seem seamless. Her dedication and passion shines through her work, always striving to go the extra mile to create innovative schemes and testing the boundaries of design.
