Megan Stone, Owner of The High Road Design Studio, is Redesigning the Marijuana Retail Industry
Megan Stone, a Scottsdale, Arizona-based cannabis retail designer and owner of The High Road Design Studio, is helping to revolutionize marijuana retail on a national level. Stone was honored last month with the fourth annual Designer Dozen Award by Visual Merchandising and Store Design Magazine (VMSD).
Stone was selected for her progressive and innovative work in the cannabis industry. The award is hosted by VMSD magazine and parent company ST Media Group. It showcases 12 of the best and brightest emerging retail designers under 35.
“This list of up-and-coming talent represents the ones introducing new strategies and concepts and impacting the shopping experience in the 21st century,” said VMSD Editor-in-Chief Patricia Sheehan.
An authority in the cannabis field for her breadth of experience and dispensary designs, Stone, a 2006 graduate of the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management, jumped into the market in 2013 when she graduated the Interior Designers Institute and founded The High Road Design Studio.
As a former budtender and dispensary manager, Stone brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to her company, educating cannabis business owners on the importance of design in professionalism, branding, customer loyalty, and profitability.
