Congratulations to all the winners of last weeks Retail Design Institute's Store Design Awards and mainly to Fitch Inc/Target and Chute Gerdeman/Aaron Brothers, two projects I had the opportunity to photograph. Both projects won First Places. Also, I'd like to congratulate Bevan Bloemendaal of Timberland, a long time client and friend, for his induction into the Legion of Honor. Well deserved!

Having the opportunity to photograph the event on behalf of the Retail Design Institute was an honor. I truly enjoyed the evening with having the chance to talk with clients and industry friends. Next stop…Global Shop. If you're heading to Chicago this year, be sure to look me up.
