Featured in this week’s episode of The Productive Designer host Crystal Collinson interviews app designer Sam Smith. Vishion is a small business in Charlotte, North Carolina that is dedicated to creating a colour search app to help designers find pieces of furniture, wallpaper, paint, and more based on colour.
Sam is not an interior designer, but she got the idea for Vishion after she was trying to find a piece of furniture based on a particular colour she had in mind. During that struggle, she realized it was difficult to find pieces for the home based on their colour instead of their function. This inspired her to create Vishion, a search engine for designers to find their interior needs based on colour.
Vishion is currently partnered with Sherwin Williams to help you find the perfect paint colour to match your needs. It’s as simple as typing in the colour you want and suddenly choices of chairs, wallpaper, rugs, and more are brought to your screen. After you’ve made a selection, it brings you to the website where it is found, and you can purchase your item directly from the seller.
Originally, Vishion started as just an app for your phone but during quarantine they expanded to starting their own website. As this difficult time during the pandemic progresses, Sam has more ideas for expanding her business.
So, join Crystal and Sam as they dive into Vishion and what is has done for interior designers. And then, do something today that your future self will thank you for and join Vishion to get connected to other like-minded individuals.
