2026/17 brand design and visual merchandising concept

The fashion business graduation project of 2016/17 is a joint venture on the overall aspects of visual design in fashion retail branding and marketing. This interdisciplinary approach allows the students to understand their works in a wider design context.

The students were challenged to create their own commercial fashion brand by considering a specific market segment, target market and target group.

Carefully selecting their merchandise in terms of quality, quantity, style and price the students continued to develop their visual brand identity, which expanded from logo to campaign, retail to webdesign and visual merchandising.

Bringing all of these aspects together the students created, a brand booklet, a website for an online shop, an opening campaign and a window display.
