As a result of her Interior Design studies, Anita discovered SketchUp and set about self-teaching this software to the extent that she became a proficient 3D Visualiser, with a number of high profile commissions under her belt.
Having realised the importance of working in a role that gives you joy and a sense of purpose, she made the nerve wracking decision to leave a secure and stable job to establish a 3D Visualisation business; something she felt was her true calling. She now teaches & champions female Interior Designers all over the world to help them achieve their SketchUp learning goals.
Challenging societal norms, especially gender roles/stereotypes is important to the SketchUp Hub, particularly for women working in a female dominated industry (Interior Design), wishing to learn a male dominated skill (CAD). Having taught female Interior Designers for more than three years, we’re acutely aware of the fear, anxiety and self-doubt that women feel when considering upskilling in this area. Which is why Anita has placed women, from all backgrounds and walks of life, front and centre in her mission to help empower them while they too, follow their true calling.

Our mission is to help empower female Interior Designers with the right SketchUp skills to produce accurate plans and creative illustrations at a professional level for the ultimate benefit of their business. We are also committed to setting and maintaining standards within the industry and providing an ongoing source of support and inspiration to women all over the world.
Our vision is to become a centre of excellence for the online education of Interior Designers in terms of digital and presentation skills. We want to contribute to positive change by supporting charities and increasing accessibility to resources through paid scholarships to support inclusion. This will increase opportunities for personal and professional development for women within the industry.
I have been able to use SketchUp plans and elevations in my work which have really helped me get my ideas across to my clients. Producing professional drawings is important in our industry and Anita champions high standards at all times- she is a very inspirational woman who is clearly passionate about all things SketchUp and helping women reach their full potential.
The first word I think of is empowered. Learning SketchUp and learning it well was just the beginning. Joining the SketchUp Hub and having Anita Brown as my instructor was life changing for me. I began to believe in myself, find my voice and rediscover a dream that I had long forgotten.
Using SketchUp has made it so much quicker and more straightforward for me to explore design variations and communicate my ideas to clients. The courses offered by the SketchUp Hub have made learning fool-proof and the community of fellow learners adds another dimension. I’ve not really seen any other courses with a comparable level of ongoing support.
