Steps to Updating Your Designer Page

Inclusion of your profile in the “Find a Designer” feature lets you share your accomplishments, identify your specialty areas, and promote your gallery of work.

If you are a current CHID and do not have a Designer Profile on the AAHID website, contact to get started.

To update your existing profile, log in using the blue login tab on the upper right hand corner of the AAHID website home page. Your user name is your email address. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it by clicking on “Forgot Password?” or contact

Once you’re logged in, you may edit the text in each of the category tabs that appear on the Edit Designer page (General, Contact, Social Media, Profile, Images, Testimonial). Note: If you are directed to the My Account page after logging in, click the blue login tab on the upper right hand corner of the page to access the Edit Designer page.

  • Write a description that is short and succinct (suggest no more than 500 words).
  • Break long paragraphs into 2-3 sentences max.
  • Use sub-heads and bullet points for easier readability.
