Meeghan Alexis Shellard [meeghan]
What is your specialty?
Interior design and lighting. My strong points are 3D rendering (Autodesk Revit 9.1) and presentation boards/posters (Photoshop CS). I'm mostly interested in volumetric retail and hospitality spaces, and enjoy designing sculptural/architectural/design features.

What made you interested in design?
I'm a perfectionist. I've always noticed the details in everything around me. I pick up flaws in the designs of everyday objects, certain spaces, even fashion, and I think of how they could be improved. Then I wanted to be the one to change them. If I could be a fashion designer, industrial designer and graphic designer I would be! Instead I am an interior designer because there are opportunities to incorporate all these things in a created space.
What has been your professional career path?
I finished my BA degree in interior design in 2006, from there I did 9 months of designing Snaidero kitchen layouts. I have just completed my BA honours in interior design and then designed the offices for a small local advertising agency. I am currently looking for a job abroad.
Have you received any awards for your work in the field of design?
What is your motivation? What makes you get up in the mornings?
I always seek to improve myself and the world around me. I want to create things that matter which make life simpler and better in every way.
In which new areas would you like to experiment?
I would love any opportunity to design in other fields: fashion, furniture, vehicles, products
