Description



Tom Marquardt, IIDA, SBID

Design Principal, HDR

Tom is passionate about using design thinking as a tool to create detailed solutions that offer uncompromising relevance, clarity and resonance. A veteran in the industry with 29 years of experience, Tom comes to us after leading his own successful interdisciplinary design and branded environments studio in Chicago, which he founded in 1988. Prior to that, he worked for two firms designing corporate and commercial interior projects ranging from office test fit plans to high-end showrooms. In fact, having worked on projects spanning the corporate, commercial, retail, educational, residential, institutional and nonprofit sectors, there are few project types that he hasn't worked on. But that doesn't mean he is resistant to new ideas. He sees his new role as a major "evolution" of his career. Tom is an IIDA Annual Student Design Charrette co-founder and judge, and he is also an adjunct professor at the Harrington College of Design in Chicago. He has won several interior design awards, and he has been featured in publications including Interior Design Magazine, Interiors & Sources and Contract Magazine.

Join us as Tom shares with us his branded environment approach.
