VM&RD - - VM&RD RETAIL DESIGN AWARDS 2016 -

“VMRD is a vi­brant, re­spon­sive, re­spon­si­ble plat­form that is ap­pre­cia­tive and con­cerned about Re­tail Ar­chi­tec­tural De­sign. All those who are in the re­tail in­dus­try must par­tic­i­pate to learn “What’s New” in mar­ket and to un­der­stand a ju­di­cious mix of var­i­ous projects in In­dia. One can also see de­sign­ers im­ple­ment­ing their in­sights which are now match­ing to global trends. In fact some of the en­tries re­ally kept me en­gaged for some time to think upon the in­no­va­tions dis­played within the store.

Ev­ery year the qual­ity and quan­tity of sub­mis­sions is def­i­nitely im­prov­ing, how­ever some of the re­tail­ers are giv­ing same story for mul­ti­ple cat­e­gory en­tries. Also it’s dif­fi­cult to judge all de­signs by only pho­tographs; I would ap­pre­ci­ate if some videos can be up­loaded with link to un­der­stand the store bet­ter. Dur­ing my visit to one of the store walk­through, I re­alised that what I saw was much bet­ter than only pho­tographs up­loaded on the web­site. In the sec­ond round, there are more than 15 en­tries yet to judge in some cat­e­gory which should be re­stricted to 6 at the most.”
