Working on the Retail branch of this large firm, was the sole party responsible for creating the design document drawings for all of the international Claire’s girls jewelry stores.
I was then hand picked to be the singular interior designer on the new concept design for the southern department store, Belk, where I was accountable for everything from concept development, sketching, research, building 3d models, renderings, image strategy and writing specs.
At the conclusion of that project, I was brought on by a client leader to work on the conceptual flagship store for the Boston Grocer Roche Brothers; for which we are currently working on the design development.
