Brian Hew, one of Georgia’s most promising designers, blending Interior Design, Graphic Design, Branding and Marketing with Technology, Passion and Knowledge decided to start his own Interior Design studio. Brian’s passion for design began at an early age with a fascination for architecture and the environments surrounding him and he hasn’t looked back since. 

This passion for design led him to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta where his love for design became more focused on commercial design. His ability to understand the entire scope of a project and dissect it into individual parts along with the gift to visualize a space 3-dimensionally gives him a unique sense of how colors, objects, and materials coincide with one another. Brian’s keen eye for graphics has led him to becoming skilled in concept development, conceptual design, architectural drawing and 3-D rendering. His knowledge of current marketing trends and his strong sense of branding allow him to create a memorable impression. Brian’s patience and calm approach combined with a strong sense of branding perform an essential strategic link between objectives and design execution.

With 15+ years of customer service and leadership skills, Brian digs deep into understanding the initiatives and goals of his clients as well as the project at hand. He has worked on various projects throughout the United States in both commercial and residential design for well-known clients like Radisson Hotel Group, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Hilton Hotels & Resorts , Home Depot, Georgia Pacific, Kimberly-Clark, Goodwill and Drees Homes. He has often been recognized for his determination and strong work ethic, enabling him to attain many goals that have created lasting relationships with clients, peers and supervisors alike. He has received certificates of appreciation from IIDA Georgia Chapter and has been featured in IIDA Georgia’s Design and Delivered as well as The Editor At Large – Editor TV. In addition to this, Brian has always placed great importance on using his skills and talents to volunteer and give back to the community in various activities through ASID, IIDAUSGBC Georgia Chapters, GAIDPNEWH Atlanta and Tiny House Atlanta.
