Hold Your Breath....Here We Go!

It's September first, so in my book it's now officially acceptable to start with the Holiday mayhem.

(Hey, I may work in the retail industry, but I simply cannot bring myself to jump into the Holidays until AFTER Summer!!!)
These photos are of a fun and inexpensive display treatment - Bubble Wrap Curtains!
I saw these in a home decor shop in Leavenworth, Washington last year, and was just so amused with them. The shop was as traditional as they come, no funky stuff at all, and yet the display designer had created these whimsical accents to the decor - and BOY did it stand out!

It's a great example of how simple materials can be transformed into a show stopper of a display!

(So, tell me...what can YOU do with newspaper, bubble wrap, or styro peanuts?)

my take on retail visual design:

"The thing is, retail design is driven by psychology. It is by manipulating space, visuals, lighting, sound, smell, and mood that we influence customers to enter, stay, browse, buy, and return. It is an endless exercise in change, endurance, growth, education, and imagination that enables retailers to stay on top of their game and at the forefront of their customer's minds. Yes, what you sell IS important - but even the very best merchandise won't sell at full price if it's presented in torn boxes on dirty shelves in a store that is too crowded to turn around in. Visual impact is a huge part of business, and utilizing the principles that have been proven to work can help you build a better business." ~ DWK
