Calling all interior design students and enthusiasts! Read on to find out more about Basics Interior Design: Retail Design and leave a comment before 4pm tomorrow to be in with a chance of winning a copy!

As fashion trends quickly come and go, retail spaces are rapidly evolving to remain enticing and competitive. The first book in AVA’s Basics Interior Design series, Retail Design addresses the subject of interior design in a retail context. Brand and identity are explored as starting points in the design process, and the relationship between the interior and its context, site and setting is also discussed.

If you are an interior design or architecture student, or you’re simply interested in retail design or fashion, this book will introduce ways of manipulating space and encourage you to explore the spatial elements of ceilings, walls and floors. Circulation and pace are also considered along with the effects of a building on the environment.

‘I thought visually the book really pops and makes me want to read about the design work. The photos look modern and up to date as compared to other design books.’

– Sheila S. Flener, Western Kentucky University, USA

  1. Hi! Would love to have this book! :) I’ve recently realized my passion for interior design and I’m hoping to start pursuing it soon. I could really learn a lot with this book :D

  2. The Interior Design series is excellent and this looks like a worthy addition to my mini-library. Retail design is a new topic to me as well – its great to read up on something different!
