VMSD'S fourth annual listing of up-and-coming designers in the retail industry salutes young professionals whose talent, ideas, focus and drive merit recognition from their peers and the industry at large. These new faces bring fresh perspectives and
approaches to fast-moving trends in the built environment, in the face of business and societal
challenges, while positioning themselves and their companies to thrive and shine.
This year's winners represent a variety of educational, cultural and professional experiences
- from an independent designer whose work focuses on the booming cannabis industry to
the lead interior designer for a Fortune 500 fast-food company ("billions and billions served").
Together they claim a common bond: a passion for store design, and for creating memorable,
dynamic and engaging customer experiences. Our industry's future is in good hands with these
12 achievers - and we celebrate them here.
