One of the most common questions we get asked when being interviewed by clients evaluating our design-build services is whether they can skip the step of hiring an interior designer and just decorate their branches and/or HQ on their own. Our answer is always no, and we have some really good reasons as to why.We sat down with our lead Interior Designer, Jessica Kreger, here at DBSI to break these reasons down for you in this super short, super informative video! Jessica Kreger has years of experience as an interior designer (specifically working in retail and financial institutions), a passion for making things look pretty AND functional, and a lot of knowledge she wants to share with financial institutions doing their due diligence before an upcoming branch transformation project.
