The primary position in a florist is the lead flower designer. This job could be fulfilled by the owner, a manager, or another employee and the task is to create designs using flowers. Even though this may seem pretty basic and simple, it is a very critical position. Every completed floral design will be judged and represents the quality and creativity of the florist shop.
Ikebana flower designs tend to be minimalistic; the key to achieving their distinguished beauty is not in any particular single component, but rather the balance between all of them. The key is finding a harmonic balance between all the elements of expression (the container and the flowers, stalks and leaves), their characteristics (such as color, texture, form and the season they represent) and the space where the flower arrangement is expected to be used.
