They have been selected as leaders in CET Designer and are committed to growing along with us. We will be running a series featuring Calibrate Designers in our Spark Newsletter to recognize and highlight their talents. Please meet this month’s featured designer, Jude Capanna! With 26 years in design and specification, Jude has experience and passion for what he does that enlightens every project and builds confidence with his clients. He has been growing his knowledge in CET for the past 3 years, as it is an integral part of his day-to-day design process. Because CET has so many capabilities, he says it plays a critical role in developing and presenting designs to Cofco’s clients. “It is ideal for creating high-definition color renderings which help bring the 2D floor plans to life and allow our clients to fully visualize their space”, Jude says. When asked what his motivation is to work hard, he replied, “Impressing our clients is my number one goal. It can mean different things at different times, but certainly motivates me to work hard in providing them with thoughtful design solutions. I want it to be abundantly clear that I listened intently and responded in kind to every detail in their scope of work outline.” Outside of design Jude also has a passion for writing and recording his own music and has been doing so since 2011! Music has always been a part of his life and he loves to share his songs online and with those around him, hoping they have an immediate impact on the listener. If given the opportunity to record music anywhere in the world for one year, he enthusiastically said Mt. Desert Island, Maine. He and his wife and 10-year-old son vacation there often and have mused about living there someday. Though the intense winters may keep them at bay, he thinks they could survive a year hiking through Acadia National Park, sitting by a campfire and playing original music he writes.
