Third year students Christa Peneda and Brianna Langman finished second and third respectively in the National Retail Design Institute Competition. The competition was part of a three week quick design project that closed out the spring semester. The competition required the design of an eye glass retail store. Christa’s concept revolved around the physical characteristics of an eye refractor combined with futuristic technology. Brianna’s focus was to distinguish her store as part of the public spotlight using celebrity endorsements and integrated technology. Professors Jim Dawkins and Steve Webber taught the class. This the the third year that FSU students have won two of the top three awards.
