  • Degree or Experience? Exploring Interior Design Credentials with Jon Otis and Listener Feedback
    Apr 18 2024

    In a recent episode, Doug asked a question that sparked considerable discussion: should a college degree be mandatory for the NCIDQ exam, or if work experience and apprenticeships be adequate? Responding to insightful listener feedback, Doug invited Jon Otis, a distinguished figure in interior design advocacy and a Professor, to explore the issue further. The feedback varied; some listeners supported alternative licensure paths for their diversity and affordability, while others advocated for the necessity of a bachelor's degree due to the rigor of formal education. This sparked a broader conversation between Doug and Jon about the merits of formal education versus learning through experience.

    Do you have a hot take? Email Doug at dshapiro@ofs.com with your opinions on the NCIDQ degree requirements.

  • Is it time to reimagine the private office? | Brian Graham and Molly Prior
    Apr 15 2024

    Is the private office taking on a new and important role? Is it time for the private office to be reimagined? In this special episode, Doug shares part of a conversation we captured between designer Brian Graham and our very own, Molly Prior. Together, Brian and Molly chat about the rapid shift in management styles that might challenge the traditional use of the private office - from a more hierarchical environment to a more inclusive and flexible space that can encourage open dialogue and create a sense of equality. But, what might that look like for the future of private offices and workspaces in general?

    Hear more from Brian Graham on this new take on the private office. Watch here.
