This year, our seasoned 10th graders were put into 4 project teams to work on their Grade 10 Capstone Project: Designing a Merit Product Collection. Each team developed a theme for their collection, created 5 design concepts, and produced a graphic brief which included information on design elements, the aesthetic, color choices, and inspiration images and typography. With the help of local graphic designers, each collection’s design concepts were turned into graphics that will be placed on product in their collection. After deciding what type of product and color schemes they wanted for their sample collection, it was time to start thinking about how the product will be displayed!
At the end of the year Student Showcase, each team’s product collections will be on display for audience members to pre-purchase. The team with the most pre-sales will win the competition and the entire collection will be produced and sold on Merit’s website! To help make these trade show booths AWESOME, we partnered with Creative Solutions Group --
“Creative Solutions Group creates memorable experiences for our clients across a variety of industry segments and venues. With an arsenal of full-service in-house capabilities, we use our creativity, innovation and unwavering commitment to customer care to deliver solutions that distinguish your brands and engage, entertain and educate your consumers.”
During an excursion to CSG, each team helped design the large graphics you see below that will be on display next to each team’s collection at the Student Showcase!
Special thanks to Dan, Kori, Kristina, and Josh from CSG for supporting the 10th grade project and helping us make some impressive trade show displays!
