What is Freddie?
Freddie is a new membership experience designed for the interior community. Freddie’s mission is to empower and highlight the creativity and innovation of our industry and help bring their work, experience, and insights to the public through our channels and newsletters. For members, it’s a forum where member designers can chat and learn while growing their business.
What is Freddie not?
Freddie is not an end-to-end design solution for prospective clients and will not own the client-to-designer matching process. Freddie is a community based membership organization and helps bring visibility to designers and the design community. Any revenue as it relates to a designer’s business is solely their own.
What are Freddie’s offerings?
We’re just getting started but for member designers, we will be providing brand building and support including digital first opportunities including social and marketing help, along with providing our industry insights in our newsletters. As we continue to grow and build our network, our programming will also include virtual member networking events, webinars, and connecting with our community.
