Cruise Ship Design: Veterans or Virgins?
Image for Cruise Ship Design: Veterans or Virgins?

At this year’s Sea Trade Global in Miami (April 8-11), our very own Senior Designer Ayesha Khan will be moderating a panel on cruise ship design called, ‘Cruise Ship Design: Veterans or Virgins?’ The panel discussion will answer such questions as: What are the pluses and challenges of working with cruise ship design novices versus cruise ship design veterans? Does the prestige of having a renowned design name outweigh the virtues of having a designer well versed in the multifaceted particularities of shipbuilding? How do those who are unfamiliar with maritime design feel about the steep learning curve? And what is the client’s perspective? The panel will take place on that Wednesday at 10:30AM at the Cruising Innovations Theater.

Going Places 2019: Sanya
February 2019 - Hospitality Design Magazine writes about how Sanya, found on the southern end of Hainan Island, has emerged as one of China’s most sought-after tourist destinations. Atlantis Sanya is one of the examples of new hotels opening in the area. Having worked on the Dubai resort, we (JBI) were already immersed in the Atlantis ethos, but for Sanya’s interiors, it was time for a “new and futuristic narrative that was aimed at a completely different demographic.” Studying the South China Sea’s marine life led to dressing public spaces and corridors in deep blue and turquoise and etching purple sea fan coral and Chinese lacebark elm onto glass and bronze surfaces. Zitan, Hongmu, and Jichimu, hardwoods native to the province, were also embraced.
