Welcome to The Design POP

Your Savvy Community

The Design POP was created as a platform to serve, educate, and inspire the entire POPulation of contract furniture designers. And yes, the name could also account for the number of times we have all been asked to add a “pop” of color to our designs.

Every organization has limited resources.

Small dealers may not have the training budget that larger ones do. Some manufacturers offer training, webinars, or other services to aid our industry, while many others don’t offer anything.

Either way, contract designers need training, best practices, and a community of knowledgeable individuals to be successful.

Gain real world application expertise in minutes PLUS:

  • Best practices from industry experts 

  • Time Savings — no need to search multiple websites for "how to" videos

  • Enhancement to your core design skillset

  • Personal & professional development 

  • Connection with designers outside of your organization 

  • Access to content when and where you want it

The Design POP is for you if...

  • You are a designer trying to adopt new technology such as CET Commercial Interiors, e-manage|ONE, ProjectMatrix, or Yulio and don't have time to search mutiple sites

  • You are a design manager in charge of onboarding a new designer and would like an affordable, self-paced option 

  • You need access to searchable “how to” training videos 

  • The budget of your organization doesn’t offer custom training

  • You’re assessing best practices for your organization

  • You want to be part of a community where you help determine the content of future videos and collaborate with others across manufacturer lines

I love The Design POP’s CET Path. It is very well organized with ‘beginner, intermediate & advanced” videos. They are short but very focused. I am learning so much. I can always go back and watch again and look forward to new ones. Thanks to The Design POP!

"... I have been plowing through some training videos today. I'm loving this. I've actually figured out how to use ProjectSpec in one day!"

– John, a subscriber

I am always in search of ways to make my work faster and more efficient. The Design POP is full of tips and tricks that ease the stress of everyday specifications and help me to focus on what’s important….design.

– A CET User

Love that you have content from a couple of people we’ve trained with in the past so we know the content is good!

– The Design POP Subscriber

As a dealer consultant, I can only work with as many groups as I have time for each week. The Design POP is helping me reach a larger audience to deploy training and best practices at a fixed cost.
