Interior Designer at Interior DesignWorks
On the record

Maria Martin, ASID, TX RID, founder of Design Appy, is an Interior designer and Artist with 20 plus years of experience in Austin, TX, who is passionate about using design-driven technology and content to improve client communication.

Martin considers standing in the clients shoes when looking at the traditional design process. She realized that clients want the design experience of a rendering without the delays between appointments, and there is no tool available to effectively accomplish this. As a result, Martin created a digital sketching software called Design Appy. Design Appy allows designers to generate scale tile drawings and elevations for bathrooms and kitchens in just a few minutes. She was recognized as an ASID Ones to Watch Scholar in 2019 for the work on this innovative program. Martin is also a recipient of the Kitchen and Bath Design News Innovator award 2021.

Martin also hosts a weekly Podcast: Designer Discussions, for home design professionals focusing on the impact of behavioral economics applied to the interior design industry through PR, PR marketing and client interactions.
