Since October 2012, I’ve been working with Ball State’s interior design program to enhance Easter Seals Crossroads’ 1st and 2nd floor lobbies and restrooms. Ball State interior design students assist partners statewide including retailers, hotels, offices, and nonprofits in need of design concepts for their spaces. Working in team, the students consult with clients and provide graphic solutions-everything from the layout of floor plans and ideas for lighting to suggestion for fixtures and furnishing that can then be executed by professional designers.
