In the March issue, the company name and sample work of one
GlobalShop participant was incorrectly identified. The company’s
complete name is King Retail Solutions (KRS). While KRS contributed to the project shown in the March issue, it was designed by
Tesser. KRS designed this Green Zebra store in Portland, Ore.
In the Design Firm Guide of the Winners Book, a project was
erroneously attributed to Interbrand Design Forum. The project,
Jockey Bra, was designed by JGA. Interbrand Design Forum
designed this Volcom store in New York City.
In the Verizon Destination Store article in the March issue, the
credits list inadvertently omitted Fusion Specialties as one of
the suppliers of mannequins. We regret the errors.
