VMSD’s 2021 Designer Dozen

Deadline is February 12, 2021




VMSD’s 2021 Designer Dozen

Ready to nominate a young designer or visual merchandiser as one of VMSD‘s 2021 Designer Dozen?

The 2021 deadline has passed. For the 2022 form, please check back in late 2021/early 2022.

Here’s the scoop: Each year, we select 12 up-and-coming designers under age 35. We’re looking for people making a difference in their retail design/visual merchandising teams or design firms with fresh ideas, innovative methods and get-it-done attitudes. If there’s a star among your coworkers, supervisees or peers, nominate him or her by filling out the form below.

You will be prompted to provide a high-res head shot of your nominee, along with 5 sample photos of his or her work. You MUST provide these materials in order for your nominee to be considered.

You can nominate yourself, or a colleague, but entrants must be employed by a retailer or a design firm. Entries from manufacturers, suppliers or distributors will be automatically disqualified.

This year’s winners will appear in the April 2021 issue of VMSD, will receive a commemorative award and will be recognized at a celebration to-be-announced.


For additional questions or assistance, contact VMSD‘s Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Jennifer Acevedo at [email protected]




Embracing Whole-Brained Thinking in the Design Journey

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
