Miami, FL, US



Hello I am Tejon Forbes and my first name actively describes me as an individual. I am Tenacious, Endearing, Jovial, Optimistic and Noble. As a design professional, I believe that design is everywhere and you can pull inspiration from the most unlikely places and in my case that is music. As an avid music lover, I often pull design inspiration from music and abstract these philosophies into tangible design elements. This unique thought process I call "Music Meets Design".

Miami International University of Art & Design, Miami, FL, US, Bachelors, Interior Design

The Interior Design program is carefully structured to teach students to merge form and function into their work, thereby creating surroundings that enhance the well-being and productivity of the people who live, work, or play there. In addition to planning interior spaces that are aesthetically pleasing and functional, our students will also have the opportunity to learn about federal, state, and local building codes regarding life safety issues, which are necessary for professional practice. The program begins with a solid foundation in basic drafting, drawing, rendering, and perspective and then builds upon aesthetics, design theory, and technical problem-solving skills.
