 I am Cristina Rodriguez, graduated on March 2010 from The Art Institute of California-San Diego in Interior Design field. I understand all five phases of Interior Design, Programming, Schematics, Design Development, Construction Documentation and Contract Administration. I have done projects in Residential Design and Hospitality Design as well as graphics, layouts, window and wall displays. Also I have been working in award-winning design firms in the United States and China.
My passion for Interior Design has led me to travel to Shanghai, China for new opportunity as Conceptual Designer, Interior Design Assistant and AutoCAD Drafter.
I am planning to being certify by the NCIDQ and LEED AP. For this reason I seek to have more experience in it.  I consider myself capable to work in teams, and handle constructive criticism and also to develop positive relations with other employees and clients in general. Detailed oriented, dedicated and hard working person. Highly motivated to work in the industry, and looking forward for new opportunities to learn new techniques and practice on the field.

Good interior design involves more than just colors, textures, and patterns. It’s form meets function. It’s connecting people to the spaces where they live, work, learn, and play. And it’s designing to ensure public safety and environmental standards. Interior designers work in three dimensions, combining traditional design techniques with industry technology to create beautiful, functional spaces that impact how we interact, adding their own sense of style in the process.
