Volunteering: a chance to help and learn

I find very interesting the idea of volunteering. Whether you like helping people or just because you look for a work experience, working as a volunteer can be a good option.

I worked as a volunteer space planner for an organization called “Four Square” during three months. This company develops several projects to help people in need. One of these projects is EFI (Edinburgh Furniture Initiative) which is a big store where pre owned furniture is displayed and sold at affordable prices.

My mission was to improve the image of the store in order for it to be more attractive to customers.

I designed a layout which was more visual and made the furniture appears more captivating and versatile.

Different displays were created to offer a global image of the elements to the clients. These rooms were changed two or three times per week due to the quick sales.

The improvements, increased the sales by 40% in two months.
