Textures, sounds, flavors, and smells highten the perception of a space and create experiences that awaken the emotions. This is the firm belief of architect, designer, and director of the architecture and design studio In Out Studios, Nayra Iglesias. She specializes in sensory design for renovation projects, hotels, and luxury retail establishments and has completed projects for brands such as Camper, Manolo Blahnik, Grupo Swatch, Suáres Joyeros, and Aristocrazy.

In this course, Nayra teaches you how to take on an interior design project based on the senses from beginning to end. Learn all there is to know, from what sensory design actually is and how to design an experience through sensory marketing, to how to present your project on social media to give your work more visibility.
