The design industry is full of young, inspiring talent, and there is nothing better than to watch one of our own emerge as a rising star. We are proud to announce that Chute Gerdeman’s Senior Environments Designer, Laura Back, has been chosen by VMSD to be part of the magazine’s eleventh annual Designer Dozen awards. Each member of this group has the talent, drive, and innovation necessary to move this industry forward. The twelve up-and-coming designers recognized this year come from leading design firms and brands across the country.
As a Senior Environments Designer, Laura plays a pivotal role in helping to develop comprehensive retail design solutions for retailers, restaurants, and c-stores. Laura’s forward-thinking approach and creative design skills have allowed her to bring fresh, new ideas to clients, including MAPCO, El Pollo Loco, FAO Schwarz, and Xfinity.
We recently sat down with Laura to learn more about the creative mind that earned her a prestigious spot on this year’s Designer Dozen list.
