PAVE Gala Raises over
$110,000 to Benefit Education
PAVE will launch a new
graphic identity at GlobalShop.
The new logo was created in partnership with Arke-type, a Green Bay, Wis.-based advertising agency. This
new identity is intended to provide a more modern and
functional image for PAVE in its outreach to students,
educational institutions, and donors.
Founded in 1992, PAVE’s objective is to encourage
students to study in the field of retail design and
planning and visual merchandising. Additionally,
PAVE seeks to encourage retail management, store
planners, visual merchandisers, architects, and
manufacturers to interact with and support design
students. These objectives are accomplished through
competitions, projects, seminars, workshops, and
grants and scholarships funded by the annual Gala
and other fundraising activities. PAVE is a 501(c)( 3)
educational foundation administered by A.R.E.
