Ray W. Clarke, LTD - Residential & Executive Interior Design

Brian Plesmid

Architectural Consultant
Designer Draftsman: Cleveland

Brian Plesmid, schooled at Case Western Reserve University in the Architecture School, was trained in the identical methods which I would learn a few years later. Lore Cardaman's childhood friend, he came to me at her urging in 1984. During his permanent career in architecture in several corporate environments in Cleveland, he concurrently carried out my drafting, and now in retirement continues in a style unique today in the world of computer drawings. I only produce pencil hand drawn presentations for my clients. I don’t care for CAD presentations as they lack spirit, a form which Brian delivers with great talent, taste and reflecting his artistry he learned early in boyhood at lesson at The Cleveland Museum of Art. Brian is currently involved in delineating plans for my interiors on large projects.
