Lina Arigaw is a design student currently in the BA program at California State University, Long Beach. Although she wants to focus on Interior Design, her current major has given her the opportunity to learn about and work on all different aspects of design such as Placemaking, Wayfinding and Interpretive design. She is also interested in furniture design, and sees herself building custom furniture in the near future.
Lina Arigaw is a strong and motivated designer; throughout her experiences she learned to understand complex designs and execute them perfectly and safely. Moreover, she is still acquiring the skills to select and specify colors, finishes, fabrics, furniture, flooring, wallpapers, lighting, and other materials to conceptualize and produce aesthetic, functional, safe and elegant interiors. She looks forward to obtaining a position with an organization that is progressive and goal orientated which encourages a team environment with an opportunity for growth.
Lina Arigaw served as an interior design assistant Intern at Toro Lombardo Design-Build. She worked with Senior Designers on AutoCAD drawings and Sketch-up models for clients and visited job sites to meet with clients, accept deliveries and supervising jobs. As an interior design intern at the House of Honey Inc., she worked with senior designers on the initial research phase and space planning, created company templates and presentations for clients, ordered furniture and other items for the house, and contacted independent contractors regarding writing, receiving, depositing checks, and light accounting. At Perennial Real Estate in Singapore, she shadowed professional staff and interns, attended meetings with Designers and Architects to discuss new coming projects, and learned to understand the design language from a different perspective.
