Testimonials

“I hired Seyie Design to help with tenant improvement and design of three retail boutiques, as well as develop the overall concept and FFE for outdoor spaces at The BLOC. I brought the firm on board because I liked Seyie’s personal style and fresh approach, and thought her portfolio was very strong and diverse.

As a retail developer, Seyie was a good partner for us because she was able to work with third party clients independently and with minimal oversight. She was a great communicator and always met her deadlines. On each of the assignments she handled, Seyie produced several options that were thoroughly thought out and well presented. Seyie listens and responds to feedback quickly and accurately, and with practical solutions.

On the tenant improvement projects, Seyie produced great design work for three very different retail concepts with diverse third party client personalities. She was able to win over their personalities and create designs that met their functional program, while achieving a unique design. Seyie is honest and passionate, but diplomatic in herpresentation style. The concepts were branded well and aligned with our overall vision of an innovative and design-conscious shopping center, which was no small task given the spatial and budget constraints imposed on her.

On the extensive outdoor spaces and FFE, Seyie did a great job embracing the overall concept and providing both creative and practical solutions. She was not afraid to push the envelope and propose unusual ideas where appropriate.

Even though she takes her work very seriously, Seyie is fun to work with and has a fresh design perspective. I would definitely hire her again.”

“Seyie exudes sophistication and a style that can only be explained as breathtaking! Seyie designed our flagship store 3 years ago and then most recently our 2nd location. Seyie’s designs are always accompanied with impeccable style while keeping practicality and functionality in mind. The dramatic look of our salons constantly attract new clients. We are incredibly happy with her designs and can’t wait to work with her on our next project.”

“It was a pleasure working with Seyie on the design of Sugar Blossom. She is a consummate professional from start to finish. And her background in fashion combined with her interior design knowledge show through in the details of her work. Seyie magically transformed what was an empty, lifeless space into the vibrant, welcoming, whimsical bake shop I had always dreamt of. I receive compliments on my shop’s design daily. One of my favorite steps in the design process was when Seyie presented me with three design options based on our discussions. She presented three very different design threads yet all made perfect sense for my concept! It was nice to see that she had listened to me and given careful, deliberate thought to develop accurate design representations for Sugar Blossom. I am thrilled with the outcome and highly recommend her talents to anyone looking for nothing but the best in design.”

“The design of our new office — a national nonprofit focused on education advocacy — is exquisite! The feel of the office represents a new future for our students; one that is bright, open, and inviting… full of possibility. We’ve achieved this feel and look with the talent of an exceptional designer, Seyie. She not only brought her artistic expertise, but she met every need by listening, offering creative ideas, being open and flexible, and always putting the needs of the customer first.”
