SITE ANALYSIS + CLIENT INFO

DESIGN MILK Ready for your daily dose of vitamin D (that’s “D” for design!)? An on-line magazine dedicated to modern design, Design Milk offers what’s new in art, architecture, interior design, furniture and decor, fashion and technology. Always fresh never sour, Design Milk fills your thirsty cup to the brim with design finds from around the world. Drink up!

CLIENT INFO There would be 3-5 people in the office space. Design Milk is a team that is constantly evolving and traveling. They are a mostly virtual team, therefore communication via phone, email, and video chat is very important. Screen sharing, social sharing and other on-line forms of communication are also important, both between the team and with clients.

FUTURE SPACE We design the Office Space, Showroom and Pop-up Store of the Future. We expect that Design Milk will continue to be an on-line magazine in the future and that our social media presences will continue to grow perhaps into their own editorial channels. In addition, we expect that there will be growth in the events space, perhaps e-commerce and other needs will likely be added, so we should make sure to anticipate growth.

Pop up store + Display Area For the design of the display furniture shelf, the white color shelves interact with the red shelves. I want to use this exaggerated to attrack shoppers to look at on the wall. I also put some lights on the top of the shelves that also bring an interactive feeling for our clients.

Pop up store Option 1 From this rendering of the store, you can see that the pop-up store is in the center of this store and the showroom and display shelf are on the two side of the space. This layout can help clients see all the display furnitures from the entrance. The red color also can attract people’s eyes and make a profound impression.

33


Pop-up Store Option 2 For a event, the red counters are use for display artwork. For presentation time, the red counters can be used as chairs. The pop- up store is muti-functional. It is not only a showplace but also a presentation area.

For my storefront design, I used the geometric shape which come from the milk box logo. I also chose three main colors, red, white, and black from my interior design to use for my storefront design. I made those shapes to interact with each other, which matches my concept.

NEXT UNIVERSITY Commercial Design

02 47


Next University Overview NEXT University is a cutting-edge learning institution located in Norfolk, Virginia. The primary goal of the university is to develop students who will be the future leaders and innovators. Small in scale, NEXT is a private, liberal arts institution with less than 2,200 students. The faculty at NEXT have exceptional professional backgrounds but are most known for their dedication to their students in helping them develop their best work. The founders of NEXT University believed in changing the paradigm of student learning. As a result, they want to utilize new approaches and push the boundaries with the design of their new academic building to allow learning to happen everywhere. Additionally, a key goal of the project is to increase student engagement and learning retention as a result of the new environment.

Concept Philosophy Tree Branch In nature, the tree branch represent life, growth and development. The tree uses its branches to connect with air, rain, and animals. Consider of the community, connection and sustainable, my inspiration came from the tree branches. Students crave a sense of community and connection as part of their college. Creating this sense of connection and community is a critical consideration during my design process.

52


Sustainable • Use sustainable materials and zero-VOC paints. • Use as much daylights as possible to reduce energy use.

Integrate Technology • Use high technology to make interactive learning spaces. • Create a wireless connectivity space for students.

Encourage Collaboration

Provide Flexibility

NORTH FACE RETAIL STORE Retail Design

03 83


THE NORTH FACE: BEHIND THE BRAND

The North Face, Inc. is an American outdoor product company specializing in outerwear, coats, shirts, footwear, and equipment such as backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags. Its clothing and equipment lines are catered towards college students, climbers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, hikers, and endurance athletes. The company sponsors professional athletes from the worlds of running, climbing, skiing and snowboarding. The North Face began as a San Francisco-based climbing equipment retail store, founded in 1966 by Douglas Tompkins and his then-wife, Susie Tompkins. It was acquired two years later by Kenneth “Hap� Klopp. The north face of a mountain in the northern hemisphere is generally the coldest, iciest and most formidable route to climb.

Concept Philosophy Mountain “CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN NOT SO THE WORLD CAN SEE YOU, BUT SO YOU CAN SEE THE WORLD.” Provide the best gear for our athletes and the modern day explorer, support the preservation of the outdoors, and inspire a global movement of exploration. For this retail design, my inspiration comes from shape of mountain. I will combine the dramatic shape with red color from North Face logo. I hope I can show the pioneering spirit in my North Face store design.

• I used the mountain shape for my custom display table, cashier counter, and the ceiling design, which matches my concept. • I chose the Benjamin Moore zero-VOC paint red and white color, which comes from the north face logo. • The climbing wall is a workshop which is for low-in come students to learn climbing skills.

Color Transparent Acrylic Sheet

Concrete walls

There are two options for my store front design. The first option is for summer. I used those red geometric acrylic sheets to build a mountain, which can match my concept and the store logo. For the winter option, I used blue acrylic sheets, which looks like a snow mountain.

ENTRANCE VIEW RENDERING This is an interior view of the entrance. When the clients come in this store, they would first see the new arrival models of this new season. For the two wall display shelves are for women and men. The clients can pick which area they will go.

RENDERING OF CASH WRAP For this retail design, I chose the main color in the store to be red color because it comes from the logo of North Face. My concept is a mountain, so I cut wood board as the shape of mountain. I hope it can give people the feeling of nature and North Face’s company culture. In this view, the shopper can easy found the cash wrap and what they want to buy.
