Dana has always had a passion (and an eye) for design. Her professional career
begun to take course in Paris, when at just 17 years old, she undertook a dual
course spanning fashion and interior design.
Fast forward a few decades and Dana’s career has seen her work across multiple cities but ultimately settle in Canberra where she has been running CID with her mother Jan for 29 years. She’s a member of the Master Builders Association, HIA and the Design Institute of Australia (where she was given a 10-year citation in 2002) and has won more awards than we can mention.
Most recently, Dana was selected to be one of the expert judges on the TV show ‘Australia By Design’ which aired nationally in 2017.
With more energy than she knows what to do with, Dana will stop at nothing to ensure that the highest standard is met across all CID jobs.
Having founded CID 30 years ago, it’s safe to say that Jan knows a thing or two
about interior design. Over the past 30 years, Jan, along with her daughter Dana,
has built Concepts in to the reputable company it is today. Over the decades, Jan
has forged unparalleled industry relationships and is highly respected in her field.
Well known for her impeccable taste, Jan’s reputation is second to none.
Most recently Jan made the partial move to the NSW north coast where she runs the Concepts satellite office in Yamba. She splits her time evenly between the Yamba and Canberra offices.
With over 10 years of practical design experience under her belt, Jenna graduated from CIT with an advanced diploma of Building Design in 2007. After working in an architecture firm for a few years, Jenna came on board as a designer at Concepts in 2011 – she has never looked back.
