Students excel in interior design competition

Posted October 29, 2014

Five students from ACU’s department of art and design were recognized at The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Texas Chapter 2014 Student Symposium.

Senior interior design majors Bryana Guy, Michael Ferguson, Jill Crandall and Crystal Hiebert and sophomore interior design major Jose Angel Lopez each received awards at the competition.

In addition to winning three awards, Ferguson received a $2,500 scholarship. He will be recognized on ASID’s website, in the Design Texas magazine, and in an ASID email sent to all of the organization’s members.

“I am happy to say our students excel in competitions such as these time and time again,” says Kitty Wasemiller, professor and interior design program director. “Their work is fresh, original and hard to do. We are very proud to have public recognition for them."

ASID is a community of over 24,000 designers, industry representatives, educators and students committed to interior design. The student symposium, a two-day event showcasing design talent, offers students networking opportunities and challenges their artistic skills.
