Here’s a few food trucks to whet the appetite. All brands whatever their purpose could follow this model for some pop up retail.

Beurre & Sel

Really like this shop (and website) especially the product display, simple is always best and it’s always good when your packaging creates it’s own point of sale.

Season’s Greetings

Apologies for the total lack of posts on here and thanks to all of you who keep visiting.

Normal service (or even improved) will resume in the new year, in the meantime here’s a festive image from the Liberty atrium, splendid gold chains, an idea no doubt we will be borrowing for our own homes.

Thorntons – New Store Design

Towards the end of last year our new concept design for Thorntons opened in Birmingham.

More bling, more product talk and more emphasis on Thorntons enormous product range.

The perimeter (shown here in the Christmas scheme) uses a magnetic paper background to provide an easily changeable backdrop for promotions and events. Self selection is more prominent as is a more elaborate gift wrapping service. Lighting is much more detailed and ranges from overhead ceiling rafts to shelf level product lighting.

More blurb on our website.

A pastry boutique specialising in in custom desserts for special events.

Very clean, nice quirks (especially that table) and a space where the product can really stand out.
