No Script
I’m interested in partnering with TLDP as a client.

Thank you for taking a step towards interior design with an impact. Find answers to any of your questions below.

Who are Juniors?

TLDP Juniors are aspiring interior designers who are either currently pursuing their studies or fresh graduates looking for industry experience. They have registered with TLDP to take on the opportunity to expand their portfolios which are usually filled with theoretical school projects as soon as they graduate from school. Partnering with us enables you to empower the next generation of interior designers by providing them an opportunity to design a realistic space that they can include in their portfolios when they look for a job.

What makes TLDP unique?

Gone are the days of interns and junior designers drafting what their seniors have designed. At TLDP, we flip this traditional process: Juniors are put in the driver’s seat with their innovative and creative concepts, while seniors (in this case, Mentors) provide guidance and refinement. Our operations are conducted 100% online via our platform, fulfilling worldwide client demand. Got a project in France but you’re based in Indonesia? Partner with us and you could receive design proposals from Juniors based in Canada, South Africa, and the UK who are mentored by a seasoned interior designer based in the USA.

I want to jumpstart my interior design career with TLDP as a junior designer.

You’ve come to the right place. The platform was specifically designed for aspiring interior designers like you – still in their studies or fresh graduates seeking industry experience. The best aspect of our platform is that you can engage in it during your free time while simultaneously studying or looking for a full-time job. Find answers to your questions below!

Who can be a Junior?

Contrary to popular belief, a Junior does NOT necessarily pertain to a student in their junior year of studies. TLDP Juniors, short for junior designers, MUST meet any of the two following criteria:

  • You have completed at least TWO years of interior design studies for your bachelor’s degree; or
  • You are a fresh graduate within ONE year from your graduation date.

We also accept students pursuing further studies such as a master’s degree in interior design.

Do I get paid as a Junior?

We simulate the bidding process among interior designers and their firms where only the chosen designer/firm receives the contract from the client. Following the same principle, each project will typically have THREE (3) TLDP Juniors proposing their designs. The client will then choose the winning design and the Junior will be rewarded with an amount equivalent to half of the design fees the platform charges the client. For our design fees, please visit our home page here.

My program requires students to partake in internships or on-the-job training programs. Does TLDP qualify for this program?

Please refer to your school’s career services department for specific requirements for your mandatory internship. TLDP is a registered corporate entity in Singapore with fully remote operations. Selected schools have allowed their students to join our platform as Juniors for their internship. In the case of rendering a certain number of hours, our Design Director will calculate how many TLDP projects you should participate in to fulfill your school requirements. For further inquiries, kindly send an email to Delphine at tldp@thelivedesignproject.com
