Interior Designers Institute Reviews
The instructors are all active currently in Interior Design or Architecture, and are willing to impart their experience gained to the students. Many are award winning designers that want to pay it forward to the next generation of designers. Some of them graduated from IDI and returned to teach. Not only do we gain book knowledge, but also attend industry events and field trips to the vendors that we will one day be specifying products from. The one thing I would change is to let the students in the various classes select an area of the school to design - for an interior design school, the look is very dated. There is so much creative talent that is under that roof, I believe the appearance of the school should reflect that!
I'm glad that I went to a CIDA accredited school. Other graduates at my school go on to work for the top design firms in the world or start their own design firm. It's located in such a great area with growing communities, high-end showrooms and endless job opportunities. Students do an internship in the BA and MA program so they leave with actual experience on their resume to go with their portfolios. Overall, the portfolio I have put together while attending IDI has gotten me jobs in the field.
IDI is a great school for interior design, price is cheaper than most private for profit schools, professors are great, I noticed that most people who go here are white middle aged women who want a change in their career, campus is very small and clean
