VMSD unveils its annual Retail Design Firm Resource Guide

Each listing — unless non-disclosed — lists every firm’s standout projects from 2017 and their current contact information.(See the full listing in the magazine here.)
For the Rankings by Design Firm Fees table, derived from total retail design firm fees disclosed by participating firms, see below.

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.
