During the briefing session, Louisa delivered an important message that interior design is a passionate industry filled with amazing opportunities to develop and manage the best business practices. It’s significant to not only implement these practices, but show the next generation how they can too.
Logbook System is a pilot scheme designed by HKIDA in late 2015. More than 30 young interior designers have joined as mentee until now. Its aim is to raise the professional standards of interior design in Hong Kong by ensuring that interior designers acquire sufficient professional knowledge and skills. It pairs up HKIDA’s Professional Members with young interior designers in a 24-months long mentor-mentee relationship that is beneficial to both parties. At the end of the two years, the logbook will be submitted to HKIDA for evaluation. With approval of the logbook from HKIDA, mentees are qualified to become HKIDA professional members.

For those who are interested in joining this scheme as a mentee, he/she should have at least 3 years working experience with higher diploma or associate degree in interior design, or graduated with a bachelor degree in interior design. Many professional interiors designers from more than 20 local and international interior design companies have joined this scheme. As a qualified mentor, he/she should be an HKIDA professional member with at least Five à five years of professional experience in interior design industry, subject to vetting by HKIDA or endorsed by other associations and institutions (e.g. AIA, RIBA, HKIA).
