Aga Artka Interior Design - Milwaukee, WI
It all started with a realization that interior design could be a career choice for Aga Artka. Since graduating, she always knew she would follow down the entrepreneurial path. After working for two different firms, residential and small, commercially-focused and large, Aga chose to start a business of her own, which focuses on interior design solutions that tell a story with space. She successfully utilized social media to establish and grow her business. She has since assisted other professionals and organizations with building and managing an online brand. She also finds joy in inspiring and bettering the industry by blogging, mentoring students and guest speaking at schools and career events throughout the state of Wisconsin. Aga is an ideal example of applying passion to develop a viable, yet unique career in interior design.
