PAVE the Way, a 3D Design Challenge is an exciting opportunity available for students to showcase their work at a major industry event, GlobalShop 2011. College students who are enrolled in accredited store design, interior design, visual merchandising, and industrial design programs are invited to design a 3D floor fixture for this competition, which is sponsored and presented by B&N Industries. Finalists will then work with B&N Industries to produce a prototype of their design for display at GlobalShop 2011. GlobalShop 2011 will be held in Las Vegas, March 28-30, 2011, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center. First place is $5,000, with $13,500 in awards available.
The challenge is to design, develop, and construct a branded store fixture (no larger than 36-inch square footprint and 60 inches high) to display PET-SPECIFIC ACCESSORIES AND/OR PET CARE PRODUCT. The fixture should communicate the attributes of the merchandise that it houses and highlights. You may choose any species: dogs, cats, fish, birds, horses, reptiles, or any pet. Your design solution should be concise and constructed with care and professionalism. You may choose an existing brand to display, multiple brands, or create your own brand. We encourage you to let your imagination run free!
