Humber Bachelor of Interior Design student, Tiam Rahmani, has placed in an international student design competition – the only one from a Canadian postsecondary institution to do so.
Rahmani, who is in her fourth year of the program, won third prize in the PAVE Student Design Competition, store design category.
Her task was to create an innovative design for Kroger (a United States grocery chain) and its “Total Health” section of the store.
This marks the ninth time a Humber grad has won this prestigious award. Recipients also receive a $5,000 bursary in their name to support current students at the college.
As third-place winner, Rahmani took home $1500, got to travel to New York to accept her award at the Planning and Visual Education (PAVE) gala, and has been invited to the Student Program at Retail’s BIG Show, a three-day conference, in New York next month.
