Student Testimonials

Take a moment to read some of our graduate testimonials.
Susan Klingenberg

Perth, WA

My interior design journey has been incredible! I studied fashion design, but after renovating a restaurant, I realised I had chosen the wrong career path. I cold-called Perth’s top 20 interior designers to find work experience, until one day, Kristie from @elementsathome gave me an opportunity to work with her. She introduced me to IDI, so I signed up straight away.
