Mon, September 12, 2016

Humber graduate, Shelly Vo, is a cabinetmaker who recently completed a one-year cabinet making program.

 

With only one other woman in Shelly's small shop, which is home to several Humber graduates, her gender has never been an issue. “It’s a very team-oriented environment and everyone feels equal in our shop. Humber brings up cabinetmakers that are respectful,” she says. “I would encourage young women in high school to take woodworking and other trades courses. The sooner you figure out doing what you love, the longer you can enjoy doing it.”

Humber Visual Elements NIKE PAVE Project

Humber Visual Elements NIKE PAVE Project

Wed, July 20, 2016

There will be 16 students participating in The Humber Visual Elements NIKE PAVE project competition to design a NIKE shoe wall.

This wall will be built by Visual Elements and showcased at Globalshop 2017 in Vegas. There are 8 teams of 4th-year students that will be competing within Humber BID for this project.  

Students were invited to meet Andy Thaemert of NIKE (Senior Creative Director of Global Retail Design) at Visual Elements who gave the students feedback on their preliminary proposals. They were then given a tour of the impressive manufacturing facilities of Visual Elements by Robert Turk, John Simmen and Randy Simmen.

A video conference feedback session was held recently with Andy Thaemert, Randy Simmen and Neal Claassen from So Showcases (PAVE representative) to allow each of the 8 student teams 15 minutes for feedback on their proposals sent to NIKE.

The winning team will be chosen by NIKE and Visual Elements. The scheme will be built in Toronto by Visual Elements to be showcased at Globalshop in Las Vegas on March 2017.

The winning team will have the opportunity to travel to Vegas for Globalshop and for the construction of the proposal for the NIKE wall. Final presentations are tentatively scheduled for Dec.1
