Visual Merchandising is about selling or promoting by means of presentation, which involves store display and design, exhibition design, event design, photographic styling and theming. In this course students work through their own practical visual merchandising project which will cover the whole process from design to final installation. Students work through a range of practical exercises, which are followed by class discussion to highlight methods and solutions. Students complete their designs and execute a display and merchandise installation.
