Marco Altea, 3D Architect
"A place to get inspired and enjoy"
Marco joined us a little over a year ago, so we asked him why he chose Design International after completing his master degree in architecture. He told us he wanted a company that gave him a chance to work in an international environment, and DI was perfect fit. The good relationship with colleagues is one of the best things about DI as it helps everyone to share and builds upon ideas together. Aura (Valle Aurelia) is his first project and he is eagerly waiting for its completion.
Toby Koch, Lighting Designer
"A company that is not afraid to explore new territory"
Toby has been working at the company since 2008. We asked him, “Why Design International?” and his instant reply highlighted the way he gets first-hand experience with the projects very early on, allowing him to be part of the journey from the conceptual ideas right through to the opening night. What differentiates Design International from other companies, Toby told us, is the “truly unique characters” who provide such a special day-to-day working environment; their passion and enthusiasm is reflected in the many exciting concepts and projects.
Hearan Kim, Senior Team Leader
"Once you know DI, you can't get enough of it"
Hearan chose us because of her strong interest in large scale commercial projects. Dynamic and enthusiastic, she was glad to discover that at DI you can really work alongside the client. You can explore widely and be really creative. Hearan also finds working with people from different parts of the world very stimulating. When we asked Hearan about her favourite memory so far, she couldn’t decide, but she did mention our different staff events every year as they are enjoyable and just a little unpredictable.
