3DreamDesign Teams Up with SocialNorth to Offer Clients Connection & Collaboration

Furniture World News


ViewIT Technologies, creators of interior design tools, 3Dream.net and The Board™ space planning systems reported the addition of connection and collaboration to their marketing efforts. Beginning in January, SocialNorth (a boutique social media firm) will be igniting, fueling and growing the community of @3DreamDesign on Twitter and Facebook.

“Like many companies, we’ve dipped our toes in the waters of social media and discovered that it takes a great deal of time, energy and creativity to do it well,” says Donna Barlett, President of ViewIT. “We see social media as a powerful, collaborative tool and we’re ready to jump on the social media wave with SocialNorth guiding the way. Because ViewIT's online 3D design tool, 3Dream.net, is visually stimulating, social sharing is a natural fit."

3Dream.net allows interior designers and DIYers to create virtual 3D rooms with their choice of flooring, furnishings, paints and accessories from an extensive catalogue of styles and brands. Used as a brainstorming tool or to visually organize creative ideas, the tool keeps track of chosen products, allowing users to continually test styles and looks in a life-like 3-D setting. It  renders complex artistic concepts simply and easily and removes the leap of faith often needed before a renovation or major purchase. Using social media to connect members of the community to each other and manufacturers is a logical step for ViewIT Technologies.

“We’re looking forward to offering our clients an engaging way to connect and share with each other on a daily basis through SocialNorth,” says Barlett. “And we’re thrilled to work with a dynamic company that sees innovations in social media as business building opportunities.”

“We’re very excited to take on the social media voice of 3Dream,” says Julia Rosien. “3Dream is a powerful online design tool and with Dana’s digital experience and naturally online bubbly personality, we know the conversations will be fast, informative and inspirational.”
