    Bare Minerals Teams with Visual Communications Students For Design Installation

    FIDM San Francisco Visual Communications students had the opportunity to design shadow boxes for San Francisco-based Bare Minerals during their Design Installation course. Students met with Holly MacDonald, the Director of Global Visual Merchandising, at their headquarters, and learned about the brand, their philosophy, and customers. The students were most struck by the brand pillars introduced to them during that meeting. The pillars became their inspiration and focus as they began formulating a plan for the displays you see here. Below are the brand pillars as expressed by Bare Minerals.
