How do the sessions happen?

You will receive an invitation from your designer, likely in the form of a ZOOM meeting. Some designers are recording the meetings which is not to be used for profit but may be used to help raise awareness about DesignGivers and its mission.

What can I expect from my video collaboration?

Each DesignGivers, Ltd Designer has listed some ideas of what kind of collaboration you might focus on during your collaboration and have indicated if they are open to other ideas.  30 minutes is not a long design meeting so it helps to plan ahead.

What’s the best way to plan to get the most from my collaboration?

  • Make sure you have a tape measure and a pen and paper for notes.
  • You want to prioritize what you want to focus on and give thought to what your goals are. For example, if your family room is not working for you know if you need more seating, if there is a glare on the TV or it’s too dark to read.
  • Make sure your technology is working.
  • Whether or not you are having your session recorded why not get dressed for the event. After all, we’re talking about design and style and you want your designer to get a sense of your personal style as well.
  • Make sure you can give the session your full attention and will not be interrupted. Shut off your cell phone ringer and try to keep your house quiet. Thirty minutes will go by very quickly when you are brainstorming with talent and rethinking your space so plan and stay focused.
