We are delighted to be involved in the Retail Design World Student Awards, recognising the importance of the future talent in retail design.
Over the last six months students from Ravensbourne, Kingston, Nottingham Trent and Northumbria have been competing for internships at leading retailers and design consultancies, including John Lewis, Ted Baker, FITCH and here at Dalziel and Pow.
Mentored by David Dalziel with Kim Morris of JLP, Tim Greenhalgh, FITCH and Craig Smith of Ted Baker, the teams have worked on design briefs from John Lewis and Ted Baker.
The two winning students will be revealed at 1pm on the first day of the Retail Design Expo on Tuesday 10 March 2015, where there will also be a presentation of the stunning work shortlisted.
The students shortlisted for the John Lewis brief are Victoria Blizzard, Bridie Heywood, Kiran Rashid, Jade Baker, Jess Strickland and Arabella Kaye.
Those shortlisted for the Ted Baker brief are Zoe Baker, Emily Budden, Zsoka Erdelyi, Rob Richards, Derek Zhang, Harriet Collins, Emma Islam, Julius Conmigo, Sharina Tejada-Mayo and Nas Al-Dame.
The session is a must-attend for all those with an eye on the next generation of design talent.
“The enthusiasm and skill shown by all the students taking part was very impressive. It was really tough to gather a shortlist and even harder to find an outright winner. There was a maturity and creativity in all the proposals, the students and their colleges should be very proud,” David Dalziel.
