Featured Designer of the Month:
E.C. Hoffman Designs
By Betsy Hecht Cramb
John Hoffman is a designer in Tarpon Springs whose father started in the design business in a very small St. Petersburg office in 1948. John says his father taught him that “tailoring” clients’ ideals into tasteful and balanced interiors as well as exteriors, is really a lot of serious fun!
John enjoys practicing this three-dimensional art form. He finds working with people to be challenging and always interesting.
He says he is “most proud when my projects stand the test of time and when designers copy me, just like I copied my Dad and like he copied some designers before him.”
John says he feels he now has an eye for and is trained to seek a balance so his designs are both functional and exciting.
This keen eye and ability is certainly reflected in his work.
John’s training consisted of his apprenticeship with his father for over 25 years. He also studied art briefly at St. Petersburg College, Andrew College in Georgia. as well as art classes at Valdosta State College, where he studied under the artist Lamar Dodd’s daughter. John says, “I love Art !!!!”
You can see some examples of his work here, demonstrating that love of art and the principles of design that he implements in all his work. If you would like to see more of John’s work, contact John at email@example.com, or visit his website at: http://hoffmandesigns99.wix.com/design.
