Sherwin-Williams has created an Architect and Designer Support Center, a dedicated website to point professionals to educational tools and creative resources to help them navigate today’s challenging times. The online resource center provides access to Sherwin-Williams insights, continuing education and news.

“The architect and designer community continues to inspire us with its resiliency and creativity,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “We launched the support center to show our commitment and provide tools and resources to help professionals navigate these uncertain times.”

Key sections of the Architect and Designer Support Center include:

  • Business resources: Provides information about the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, emergency disaster loans and extended unemployment benefits that architects and designers may be eligible to receive.
  • Educational opportunities: Offers opportunities to strengthen design skills in live virtual events and self-guided continuing education sessions for CEU credit.
