Visual merchandising is a key part of the marketing operation of all major retailers. In department stores and fashion multiples the visual merchandising manager makes sure promotions are consistent throughout the store and its advertising. Visual merchandising managers are responsible for designing and commissioning in-store promotion and display schemes and are experts in how to turn creative ideas into reality. You'll develop your design and practical skills to standards that will impress the retailers you deal with, learning to source stunning materials, graphics and equipment to carry out your ideas, and to negotiate with suppliers to get the best deal. You'll work on photo-shoots to promote the latest fashion and home furnishing concepts, develop leadership and management skills to get the best out of your team, and learn to use a range of business and design software. The Foundation Degree in Visual Merchandising is recognised by the British Display Society as a UK ‘Centre of Excellence’. Graduates may receive the award of ProDip.BDS upon successful completion of the course and have the benefit of membership of the British Display Society whilst studying at Hertford Regional College.
