ADHM 373 - Visual Merchandising

Final Projects

The Final Project for the Visual Merchandising and Promotion class demonstrates that students have mastered the subject matter of the class and can apply what they have learned.  Each group of students selects a focus area for the retail store they will create by drawing for their topic in class.  Students are given a situation where they are an owner, store designer, or visual merchandising executive in a new stand-alone retail store (3500 sq. ft.), located in a midsized metropolitan area.  The store’s interior is completely open and undecorated – literally a blank page for students to work with in developing their retail store concept.  Students use all of the information learned from the class as they build their store.  Presentations are made of their final projects.  Click on the examples below to see the student presentations. 


ADHM 272 - Product Development


Students in the sophomore level ADHM 272 Product Development course complete a short assignment called a Color Board.  The students chose from a list of topics they might not usually explore for products.  They find one inspiration image and build a presentation board of items and colors around that image.  Please see the student colorboards below.  Click on each image to view the full project.
