In an effort to provide up-and-coming student designers with an opportunity to showcase their skills, S-CUBE, a custom retail store fixture manufacturer based in Des Plaines, Ill., U.S., is sponsoring the 2019 Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE) Student Design Challenge.
By providing students the opportunity to solve real-world retail design problems, posed by retail clients, the 2019 PAVE Student Design Challenge connects students, educators, and retail professionals in a meaningful two-way mentoring relationship. The winning student designs will be featured at GlobalShop, the largest retail design industry trade show in the U.S., in June 2019 in Chicago.
“We are honored to be involved for a second year in this innovative competition and we are looking forward to working with the next generation of retail designers,” says Eric Weinstein, principal, S-CUBE. “The students get a chance to put their creativity to the test with a real-life retail challenge, the retailers get the benefit of a new perspective, and we have the unique opportunity to bring it all together to create and display the solution.”
S-CUBE is one of one of only a few sponsors of the PAVE Student Design Challenge, which is in its 19th year. S-CUBE will be working with Bellevue College and Brooks Brothers as partners in the competition.
