Bethany Deac, Principal and Founder of VIVE Collaborative knew from an early age that she would work in a creative field. She has spent the last decade developing and fine tuning her innate sense of spatial awareness and holistic design philosophy. One that is committed to both the aesthetic and fiscal success of each project.
In April of 2014 she was awarded Boutique 18, a honor given to the top 18 up and coming designers in the US.
A Southern California native, Bethany strives to create unique and cohesive design solutions tailored to the history, identity and culture of each environment by providing a concept that is fluid and unveils itself in layers to the end user. Her strong sketching, space planning and rendering skills are useful in communicating ideas, fostering discussion and engaging all members of the project.
Bethany’s design aesthetic and philosophy continue to evolve through her extensive world travels and knowledge of foreign languages and cultures. This global exposure taught her that observation and listening are the keys to any successful venture and is something she infuses into the culture of the firm.
Always keeping in mind how the end user will function in the space, Bethany and her team create environments that are not only visually stunning and inviting, but emphasize the direction and priorities of the client.
