CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Visual Merchandising Tech

Certificate of Achievement

 

Curriculum Code: 1205  (Effective Fall 2004 ? Summer 2009)

 

Merchandise displayers, or visual merchandisers, plan and erect commercial displays such as those in windows and interiors of retail stores or at trade exhibitions.  Those who would work on building exteriors erect major store decorations, including building and window displays, and spot lighting.  Those who design store interiors outfit store departments, arrange table displays, and dress mannequins.  In large retail chains, store layouts typically are designed corporately through a central design department.  To retain the chain?s visual identity and ensure that a particular image or theme is promoted in each store, designs are distributed to individual stores by e-mail, downloaded to computers equipped with the appropriate design software, and adapted to meet individual store size and dimension requirements.
