In lieu of Harcum College’s annual on-campus show, the 2021 graduates of the Interior Design program completed digital portfolios, making their work widely accessible despite the limitations created by the pandemic, while demonstrating that they all acquired the tools and technology to thrive in the profession.

Students and faculty faced the virtual format head on. The end result? Sophisticated and detailed portfolios of all the assigned projects.

Each portfolio included both commercial and residential designs and exhibited mastery of SketchUp software. Students’ specific projects included designing glamorous corporate headquarters; high-end villas, pied-à-terres, studios, and beach homes; a she-chalet; and even a Barbie Dream Home.

“Our senior Interior Design students faced challenges none of us expected this last year and a half, but through it all, they were courageous, creative, and unstoppable,” said Heidi Techner, Interior Design Program Director. “What we all missed most was simply being together in the studio. I do believe we’ll come out of this with a lot of capabilities we weren’t taking advantage of up until now, and the students’ work has never been better!”

Each of the seven designers opened their portfolios with a professional statement and a brief design-related biography.

“Just like music, books, or art can move and reach someone deeply,” said Julia Weinstein, “so can the beauty of carefully curated and designed interiors.”

Their portfolios also included replicate drawings, photography, and watercolors of selected interior settings.

“I am so incredibly proud of each and every one of our students, and the close-knit community they have become,” said Techner.

Each of the seven portfolios are available for viewing at the below links:
