Whether it is an interior, print or a website, I'm on it.

My name is Shila Scarlet Griffith and I get my artistic side from my father and my grit from my mother. I am a formally educated and trained, NCIDQ certified and LEED accredited interior designer. I hold a bachelor’s degree in interior design and master’s degree in sustainable design.

Before I started SG23 Design, I worked in corporate and high-end residential interior design. My last job was as a designer at an award-winning Pennsylvania architecture firm, where I was the first designer to obtain NCIDQ certification. In preparation of starting my own design studio I learned to code in order to build my portfolio website to showcase my work. As a result, my studio grew and now offers brand identity and website design for businesses.

While running my own design studio, I have realized that what my clients value most is that I take a ton of weight off of their shoulders, through thoughtful design and stellar project management.

In addition, I teach a color design studio in the continuing education program at Moore College of Art and Design and I was a columnist for Hidden City with my side project Marked Potential.

From the time I step into a space or meeting, the wheels are already turning.
