Career Videos >> Arts, Audio-Video Technology and Communications >> Floral Designers video

Flowers add a special touch to any occasion. But they would be considerably less special were it not for the floral designers who work at most retail florist shops. These are the people who combine their innate creativity and color sense with a knowledge of flowers and foliage to create pleasing arrangements. Sometimes, a standard, nationally advertised design will be called for. But often designers listen carefully to a customer’s needs, suggest possible approaches, and create a custom arrangement. Most individuals learn floral design on the job, though training programs may be available from technical schools and junior colleges. And it is not at all uncommon for successful floral designers to build up a clientele of satisfied customers and eventually open a florist shop of their own.
