    Annie Wilson, ID StudiosID Studios is pleased to announce the promotion of Annie Wilson, NCIDQ, to Senior Project Manager. Annie has worked in the design industry for over 16 years and has been with ID Studios for over 5 years. Her commitment lies in ensuring her projects meet their schedule and budget all while respecting the integrity of the design, through constant interaction with the project team.

    Annie has a BS in Interior Design from the East Carolina University. Her artistic sense of design allows her to see the designer’s vision and keep it on track through the entire construction process. Her resume includes a wide range of projects, including luxury residential high rises, healthcare facilities, large, government offices, small, bespoke restaurants and interiors for dozens of corporate clients both large and small.

    Although she was born in Virginia, she headed off to North Carolina to earn her degree and then returned to Virginia to start her Interior Design career. Eventually she got restless and headed to San Diego in 2008 where she spends her free time hiking, lounging at the beach with her dogs and re-energizing for the next project.

    Annie’s engagement with the leadership of our design teams and clients through the design and construction process is commendable! Recent projects include NNSA, HUB International, Robbins Arroyo LLP and Brain Corp. We look forward to having her continued participation in our ID Studios family and at the helm of many future projects.

  4. Meet Amy Morway of ID Studios in Solana Beach

    SD Voyager interviewed Founding Principal of ID Studios, Amy Morway about her story and history in design.

    IDStudiosTeam

    Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Morway.

    Amy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
    My love of design and architecture began when I was fairly young. I found myself fascinated by buildings and how they were constructed and then soon realized I was consistently drawn to design, visual arts, and the built environment. As a highly visual person, if something felt out of order in my world, I immediately wanted to change it and create a feeling of balance and beauty. By the time I was a teenager, I became more attuned to the fact that your surroundings can have a HUGE impact on the way that you feel and function. So, it’s no surprise that I found my passion and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Soon after, I obtained my Certification in Interior Design (CID) in California, and then became a LEED Accredited Professional.

  5. Corporate Branding in The Built Environment

    Moz Metals has posted an article about Corporate Branding in The Built Environment which includes an ID Studios client, Moss Adams.

    With branding all around us in both the physical and digital world, corporate identity has seeped into nearly every aspect of daily life. In the 21st century, we have to ask ourselves: how can a brand establish a unique identity without getting lost in this information overload? How can a brand evoke industry values of technology, hard work, and innovation through the lived experience of its physical spaces? How can an office create a positive response from users through branding?

    BY JENNIFER MCENTEE

    The WD-40 Company has been reinventing itself ever since its founders figured out that the solvents and degreasers they were creating for the aerospace industry might also be useful to consumers with squeaky doors and rusty lawnmowers.

    While WD-40’s worldwide workforce has grown from 3 to 450 over the years, and its product mix has expanded well beyond that flagship lubricant in the blue and yellow can, its San Diego headquarters had been stuck in a bygone era until last August, when they moved from the Morena District to a two-story, 42,000-square-foot building in Scripps Ranch.

  9. ID Studios wins “Best Theme Inspiration” award at the 2017 IIDA Fashion Show San Diego

    Earlier this month, the IIDA San Diego hosted the annual Fashion Show where designers are paired with manufacturers to create couture fashion.

    Each year, San Diego’s esteemed design professionals take to the catwalk wearing outfits worthy of a Tony Award and constructed primarily from building materials. The Haute Couture Fashion Show pays tribute to the many talents of our design community where designers are paired with manufacturers to create couture fashion. The 2017 fashion show held earlier this month, had a dramatic twist as the design teams were challenged to create an outfit inspired by popular Broadway plays.

    This year, our team’s Broadway inspiration was the award-winning Broadway musical, Wicked, based on a 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire which was inspired by Frank Baum’s classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. We were excited to get started and found inspiration in Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and her obsession with flight.

    “As someone told me lately – everyone deserves the chance to fly.” This quote from the original song “Defying Gravity” inspired our team’s design. We imagined what it would be like to take flight soaring into the air with limitless freedom. The burst of spires attached to the garment represent the surge of powerful energy and excitement experienced while defying gravity.

    Our outfit, sponsored by Crossville, was made from glass mosaic tile on the top, the skirt from fabric from the fabric grab, the broom from Crossville packing material, and the spired back piece from marketing materials and mesh adhesive backing for mosaic tiles.

     

     

     

    Our long nights paid off when we came home with the “Best Theme Inspiration” award.

    Thank you to our sponsors, Tony and Danelle of Crossville, a manufacturer of sustainable tile solutions. As our partner, our garment had to be made exclusively from materials from their product lines, manufacturing process and marketing materials as well as any fabric we could grab during the official Fabric Grab held 6 weeks prior when we were assigned our theme.

    As usual, the level of talent in the design community was astounding as the creations that came down the runway were all fabulous! Pictures of the entire show can be found here:
