    Key topics and learnings


    Long gone are the days when lighting meant: switching on a light bulb for illumination. The advances of the past decades have evolved the lighting industry into a rich, multidisciplinary field that is linked firmly to architecture, esthetics, behavioral science and information technology. At this unique crossroads, a new profession is emerging: lighting designer.

     

    What does it mean to be a lighting designer? How do you become one? With whom will you collaborate and what will your responsibilities be? There are many such questions to be asked, and many answers to be shared. By understanding the differences between the various fields of application, you can start the journey from lighting enthusiast to professional designer.

     

    In Becoming a lighting designer you will see the many options that are available to you, and which professional settings you can choose from. Also, you will see which education and training options are open to you on your way to this new specialization.
