CRISPIN BUTTERFIELD  B.I.D. – Founder | Senior Designer

 

“To me, good design has a very direct impact on our moods and how we experience everything around us each day. It’s a deeply personal connection we don’t always immediately recognize, but truly feel as we move throughout our built environments. Whether our clients have $3 million or $30,000 – I want them all to feel that sense of pride and inspiration when they walk in the door; that their home or workplace is a true reflection of their own personal lifestyle”

 

The founder of Creative Human: Mentorship + Business Insight for Design Professionals – an online platform supporting the growth and professional development of interior designers and their businesses – she helps contribute to the evolution of a more socially conscious global design community, with private mentor clients and a small peer group currently spanning Canada, the US, Europe, and Australia
