For the second year running, leading retail design firm Callison has been named Design Firm of the Year 2009 by Display & Design Ideas (DDI) magazine. Paula Stafford, Callison executive vice president, was also named a 2009 Retail Design Luminary by industry peers.
With more than 30 years experience designing successful retail destinations, Callison has projects spanning the globe. Recent work includes the Jakarta flagship department store for Harvey Nichols, the first Nike retail stores in Shanghai and Beijing, China and the Tommy Hilfiger flagship in New York City.
“Callison’s inspiring design concepts and innovative work spans a global network—with an international rolodex that would leave many envious,” says Alison Embrey Medina, executive editor of DDI magazine. “In the past year, the firm has striven to cross-pollinate trends and transfer them across conventional boundaries, working with such retailers as Harvey Nichols, Victoria’s Secret, Hugo Boss and T-Mobile, among many others. DDI magazine congratulates Callison as the Design Firm of the Year for 2009, as selected by our readers in the 2009 Portfolio Reader Survey.”
