Deborah Ogden

One of the speakers that we had this semester was Deborah Ogden.

Her background:

  • Served on the IDEX Exam Task Force for developing the IDEX Exam
  • Past Director on the statewide Board of Directors for the California Council for Interior Design Certification (CCIDC)
  • Award-winning 29-year design-industry veteran
  • Interior Design Instructor at Ohlone College
  • Owner/Principal Designer, Ogden Studio Interior Design
  • NCIDQ-certificate-holder, a CID, and a member of IFDA and NKBA
  • Served as Committee-member, panelist/guest speaker for the Student Career Forum and IFDA/ASID Resource Fair Committee
  • Certification guest-lecturer, representing CCIDC, to college level interior design students

When Deborah Ogden came to class she had an enthusiasm to her voice and what she talked about. I think that itself is a great way to tell someone’s passion, that they have enthusiasm in their presence.

Her Lecture was not about the glamor of  being an interior designer but rather the “behind the scenes” part of being an interior designer.

She talked about the qualifications to become certified ID which is also available to view on ccidc.org.
