ASID Student Award Winner: Jill Garzik

Congratulations to Ms. Jill Garzik, student member of the New England ASID chapter who received the 2005 ASID Student Design Award at Interiors '06 in Nashville this past March. Click here for details about Jill and to see her drawings.

According to Garzik, believing in herself was the key to receiving this honor. As did many colleges this year, the New England School of Art and Design, where Garzik is a senior, incorporated the competition?to design a spa for multiple sclerosis patients that employs universal design, as well as sustainable products?into its curriculum, requiring students to complete the project per the ASID guidelines. The school would then enter two projects from each class in the competition. When the school didn?t choose her project to be submitted, Garzik decided to enter the competition on her own.
