Baker College of Auburn Hills Student Wins Design Competition

June 20, 2011

Alison Palmer, an interior design student at Baker College of Auburn Hills, has won first place in the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Michigan Chapter Student Design competition. Palmer garnered first place for her yoga studio, designed using sustainable materials that included bamboo flooring and recycled materials.

“This recent award is added to an already-impressive list of honors bestowed upon Alison as a Baker College interior design student,” said Ann Jacob, Baker College of Auburn Hills interior design program director. “In addition to ASID, Alison has won several awards from the National Kitchen & Bath Association. The most recent, which qualified her for an Excellence in Education award, was the result of her bathroom design that scored an impressive 97.5 percent. The national average score is currently somewhere around 80 percent. She is truly an exemplary student, and a talented and creative individual who will go far in her chosen career.”

Palmer won $700 for her first-place entry in the ASID competition. A Macomb Township resident, she will graduate this June, earning a bachelor’s degree in interior design. She also holds a kitchen and bath design certificate from Baker College of Auburn Hills.

Founded in 1975, ASID is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers. The organization has 18,000 practicing interior design members and more than 10,500 student members.
