I Like Design internship contest in collaboration with ICRAVE
After two highly successful years with Gresham, Smith and Partners, the I Like Design competition has packed its bags and is headed to the Big Apple!
That's right, this year ILD has relocated to New York City and we are
proud to say that the 2013-2014 winner will receive a paid internship
with ICRAVE in Manhattan, as well as paid housing costs for the summer. That means one lucky student will get the chance to live and work in the place where if you make it there, well, you know…
ICRAVE has developed a one-stage ideas competition open to any full-time student enrolled in an undergraduate/graduate program in the U.S., with a strong interest in experiential design. Submissions can have an overall emphasis on design/architecture/interior, but ICRAVE is interested in all areas of exploration as long as the conceptual thinking and ideas are strong and unique.
So without further ado, here are this year’s contest details. You can enter by clicking the “submit” button below. Get your entries in by midnight on Monday, March 10, 2014!
The City of the Future: Evolution of the Retail Experience
With the integration of digital technology in our everyday lives increasing, our virtual and physical worlds are merging. Traditional barriers and institutions are beginning to dissolve, and a new creative landscape is emerging that allows people to interact with physical spaces in new and unexpected ways. Your task in this competition is to reimagine a New York City retail experience. In a time when consumers are able to purchase merchandise from anywhere using mobile phones and other devices, what will happen to the physical spaces that once served as the center of all commercial transactions? What will the street experience become? How will it change the fabric of our city life? The challenge is to reimagine the retail experience for a single brand within the context of New York City. Walk us through the customer experience and various touch points of the store, with a focus on how the physical space will change as a result of new digital technologies.
