SSDG Interiors Inc., Vancouver
Julie is a partner at SSDG Interiors, an award winning design consulting firm in Vancouver for nearly 40 years. Julie’s career started 20 years ago focused on workplace and hospitality design. She possesses a forward-thinking philosophy that seeks to give space a personality and through design, bring that space to life. She is inspired by adventure and travel and has seen much of Europe, Asia, and South America which has broadened Julie’s understanding of culture, design and space. Ongoing design education complements her attention to detail and strong conceptual abilities resulting in projects that are expressive of her clients’ brand, image, and goals.
When asked to describe SSDG, Julie doesn’t hesitate: “We have a team of thinkers. Everyone is a designer with amazing ideas and we welcome them. We push the envelope to stay fresh and unique. There is also a high level of personal ownership, attention to detail, and client service – we care.
For Julie and the SSDG team, great design is “about our clients” and creating memorable experiences that address the goals of the organization, reflect their brand, and enhance culture. Successful projects start with a collaborative approach; engage the users of the space, and deliver on the change objectives. Julie and her team build trust through listening to their clients and offering unique and innovative solutions to combine design with image and brand. It’s this initial partnership that results in solutions that exceed expectations and truly represent a client’s image.
When Julie is not immersed in design she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and being active in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
