Creative Conceptual Design for Retail

Understanding your brand or company, understanding how consumers think, those are the clever bits…Our creative concepts are innovative, inspired and above all else help you create something new and exciting…

We LISTEN to your brief and we add our understanding of how and why people act while shopping.We start the process with quick loose conceptual sketches to generate lots of ideas and discussion points.

Once we have reviewed these and shared them with our clients we take them into the latest 3D software which enable us to create photo realistic visuals of the ideas in the retail environment. These are again reviewed with you, we create final concept designs which are often animated in 3D and shown as a video walk through of either the display unit or in store area. The latest visualisation techniques include being able to show you in augmented reality the 3D unit via an iPad while you are in store. This allows you to actually see the concepts in reality before we move onto prototype and further developments.

Development and Production

Once the conceptual vision is agreed we move onto rapid prototyping. We understand the need for speed at this time so the idea can be seen in reality. A rapid prototype often only takes our expert team 5-10 days to deliver. We use the latest technology’s and have adopted 3D print for complex components which can be taken straight from the 3D models we have already designed.

After the prototype has been signed off, we use our manufacture teams around the UK and Europe to deliver the finished products. The HIGHEST quality control is placed on all elements, from simple items through to the complex integrated touch screen systems, nothing slips past our QC team here !

At this stage we work closely with clients on the best practise for implementation into retail environments. This can range from global distribution through to our own installation teams around the globe to deliver and install your retail fixtures into store. Our aim is to ensure 100% implementation of elements, we all know POS in the stock room isn’t helping anybody’s sales !

Delivering your Dreams

Our innovative ideas, well thought through plans & carefully worked out drawings are simply brought to life by our dedicated teams of project managers, prototype specialists¬†and skilled craftsmen, who are ready to work in a variety of materials to produce stunning retail fixtures and point of sale…the next key element in the process is the logistics management to ensure the dream is delivered and correctly installed on site.

Our logistics and installation teams work 24/7 and 7 days a week to ensure the project gets done on time and to the highest standards. We use PDA’s for our teams on site, which gives us LIVE data and photos of the work we are delivering for you, which means YOU can log on to our intranet reporting systems and view photos as soon as the work is complete, giving you piece of mind at all times.

Our aim is to take away all the hassle and worry from you, and simple always do exactly what we are going to do.
