Function Creative can offer assistance to Designers and Design firms with anything from sample ordering, concept presentations, FF+E sourcing, to permit, tender and construction drawings through to contract administration/project coordination. Since completing my Diploma in Interior Design in 2009 I have worked on projects ranging from residential, senior living, quick service and full service restaurants to multi-residential, workplace and business + personal services projects. I love to collaborate with others and enjoy working on a wide variety of project types. Founding Function Creative Interior Design in 2020 allows me to do both, while providing senior level design expertise to the design community at large.
