Salt Design: Community Involvement

How our interior design company gives back to the community.

Each member of the Salt Design team cares greatly for the communities in which they work, which is why Salt Design has made volunteer work part of its company culture.

Salt Design has always been connected to the Northern Colorado education system to provide design exposure and mentorship to students. We have volunteered in numerous schools including Kruse Elementary where one of our designers helped ignite creativity by introducing students to charrettes. Charrettes are brainstorms that involve quickly placing numerous ideas into a charrette or “cart.” We often have provided job shadow opportunities to local high school students who may be pursuing a design education. Working on the Nancy Richardson Design Center on the Colorado State University campus has also lead to some opportunities to assist students with mentorship and personal critiques for their portfolio.

Salt Design has had the opportunity to work with Blue Ocean Enterprises for its “Blue Impact Day”. This day is dedicated work with local non-profits that can benefit from man-hours provided by a large team. This partnership took us to Food Bank of Fort Collins, Habitat for Humanity, ReSource, and No Barriers.

While we work closely with non-profits in Northern Colorado, our commitment to community extends beyond Northern Colorado and into every community we serve. When Salt Design President Annie Lilyblade was working on a project in the Caribbean in 2017, she spent countless hours over several months helping residents devastated by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
