Danielle Dean
Interior Designer
Danielle Dean is a licensed interior designer with leadership experience in corporate, hospitality, education, healthcare, and worship projects. Additionally, she is a WELL Accredited Professional, signifying her deep interest in human health and wellness in the built environment. Her knowledge of WELL Building Standards supports Manning’s commitment to wellness through all our projects, especially supporting minority communities where disparities are common. Her interest in environmental sustainability works in tandem with wellness initiatives and further supports Manning’s sustainability goals, aligning with the AIA’s challenge to design for net zero emissions in the built environment by 2030.

Danielle’s interests include exploring design in context and as it relates to culture. With a minor in Architectural History, she is a student of the impacts of culture and climate on architectural design and takes lessons learned from the past and applies them to contemporary design opportunities. Understanding the patterns of the past and what challenges they resolved is a springboard for solutions for today and the future. Danielle is also versed in graphic pattern design and benefits from experience as a product designer for a carpeting manufacturer. This specialized skill speaks to the level of detail Danielle brings to interior design.

She enjoys giving back through community involvement, volunteering with Relay for Life since 2010 and AT&T Pioneers since 2011. She served as a board member for Georgia’s International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Chapter, serving as Lead Graphic Designer and Atlanta City Center Director, and mentors interior design students.
