“DesignerLogic is an easy to use online application that helps me to manage sales for clients from proposals through to invoicing. It evens allows me to interface with my accounting software so I don’t have to rekey everything. My clients love it because it provides them with easy to read documentation including images, descriptions and pricing. I can do a lot more work in a shorter time than when I was doing everything on spreadsheets. And you can’t beat the price!!”
Cheryl@ KITCHEN VISIONS, LLC: Massachusetts
“DesignerLogic has become our main WIP documentation and now saves us an enormous amount of time in generating quotes to our clients and invoices as well.”
Anna@ HARE + KLEIN: Australia
DesignerLogic is an end-to-end cloud platform for the interior design industry that puts interior design firms at the center.
We have been creating and supporting intuitive software specifically for the interior design industry for over 10 years. Our clients are spread across the globe, with a concentration in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.
“Our studio needed to move away from Excel-based documentation and reporting to a platform that consolidated our data and allowed output for multiple (and previously very manually generated) reports, making the data to work harder and smarter! DesignerLogic enables us to generate said reports and keep our growing workflow at optimal efficiency.
DesignerLogic support has been refreshingly responsive, and we have been able to navigate and implement Australia-specific language and formatting to coincide harmoniously with the standard practice of our studio and local marketplace.
We look forward to the developments to come!”
Julia@ ALEXANDRA KIDD DESIGN: Australia
“I’ve been using DesignerLogic for 8 years and I couldn’t imagine operating my business without. It is very user friendly and support is very helpful and attentive to my needs. Over the years they have taken on board customer feedback and improved the offerings. This is an essential software for small design firms who want a simple tool to organize invoices, accounting, etc.”
Wale@ REBECCA JAMES STUDIO: United Kingdom
“Out of all of the design management programs we have used – and there have been many – we have found designerlogic to be the best fit for our firm. The ability to enter an item and follow through from client proposals through the ordering process all the way to installation saves a lot of time, and the control we have over the information minimizes ordering mistakes. We love the tracking features and have found them to be immensely useful when managing multiple projects at once. And lastly, we cannot say enough about the customer service which is unparalleled – any questions are answered promptly and any issues fixed within hours, not days which is a huge plus for our workflow.
Beth@ ARCHETYPE: South Carolina
“DL makes running my business so much easier. It saves me a lot of time as it keeps track of what I’ve purchased and paid for, what’s due and when; essential in projects with hundreds of items. It helps me to run my business efficiently, keeps projects organized and the data is at my fingertips wherever I am in the world as I can access it on my phone. My clients are always impressed with the detail supplied. I wouldn’t be without it.”

Interior design grads often feel ill-equipped to handle the nuts and bolts of running a design business. To best address this need, we’ve developed a program that can reach students directly in their education.
DesignerLogic’s new Learn to Earn Program is industry-tailored to help prepare students for parts of their career equally as important as the design skills they are acquiring: understanding how to best manage a client’s projects.
The Learn to Earn Program is customizable to work with a school’s particular needs. In general, each class will have a full-featured account in DesignerLogic and each student will be able to manage projects from beginning to end: spec creation, putting together proposals/quotes, presenting to clients, ordering and tracking products and work, managing billable and non-billable time, and more.
Live tutorials, given online, are included for each class and can be scheduled flexibly. In person tutorials can also be provided (please inquire for details).
Many students enroll in interior design schools with it in mind to eventually own their own business. DesignerLogic’s Learn to Earn Program can significantly help to ensure their success. Contact us to hear more about how Learn to Earn can be included in your school’s interior design curriculum.
