Trisha Johnson, NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C, EDAC
Trisha holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Louisville. Her design experience is diverse including corporate, healthcare, hospitality, restaurant, multi-family, religious, institutional, and residential. She feels strongly that design should reflect the client’s needs and desires, even if the client hasn’t discovered those yet. Trisha believes her primary role is to assist the client in discovering the key elements that are most important to their project scope and then making sure that those are incorporated. On average, people only express five percent of what they think and feel, many times clients may not be able to clearly communicate their aesthetic thoughts and goals with the project team…this is where a psychology degree comes in handy. Trisha likes working closely with the client, asking the right questions, and gleaning information in a creative way in order to provide the best possible design solution. Trisha understands the importance of being on the cutting edge of design. With so many new offerings and improvements available to designers she constantly seeks out information on new interior products in order to ensure she is providing a well-rounded knowledge base for her clients. Evidence-based design is something that Trisha is dedicated to incorporating into more projects. She showed this dedication by being the first person in Kentucky to become accredited and hopes to provide clients with a better understanding of the benefits evidence-based design can bring to their projects.
