PAVE Student Design Competition

The PAVE Student Design Competition promotes “real world” design experience for college-level students interested in pursuing careers in the retail design industry. Students involved in retail planning, visual merchandising, interior design and branding programs are encouraged to participate in creating a dynamic design space for SketchUp. Students participating in our competition will demonstrate the will to innovate, redesign, and reinvent an actual retail design space.

This annual international competition is open exclusively to undergraduate college students involved in retail planning, design, visual merchandising, and branding programs. This year’s challenge SketchUp invites you to imagine an innovative brand experience for SketchUp.

The role of technology in shaping design and architecture cannot be underestimated. This has become more evident during the current pandemic we are experiencing. Designers have been working from home in record numbers and we will see an increase in this trend. SketchUp is a tool which allows us to envision three-dimensional space in new and exciting ways.

Prizes include grants to students and the winning students may even see their designs come to life. As a reminder, the competition is open to undergraduate students only.
