Alumni Spotlight
Building a Career with a Foundation in Interior Design
Since she received a Bachelor of Interior Design at LSU in 2009, Logan Ledford has used her background in all aspects of her career. "So far, everyone in my family has picked a major and then figured out a way to use it and apply it in other fields," Logan remarked. After graduation, Logan landed a job as a graphic designer at the prestigious Zehnder Communications in New Orleans. She left Zehnder last summer to pursue her talents as an abstract artist - several of her clients are interior designers. She is currently represented by Katie Koch, a high-end drapery designer and interiors curator. Logan's work is featured in Katie Koch Home alongside Gretchen Everett's and Billy Baldwin's. Logan also gets commission work as a freelance illustrator - another skillset she picked up studying interior design at LSU.
"I am incredibly thankful that I chose interior design," said Logan. "I've used it in all aspects of my career to date." Read more in this alumni spotlight.
