To properly assess what will suit you, the client, we need to know your personality, likes, dislikes and most importantly your vision for the project. We view the site and surrounding area and size up the competition to gain competitive intelligence ready to plan a design strategy to suit the budget.
Our process starts with your brand. The concept stage is a critical part of the design process, it is where we begin to translate a brand into a physical space before the detailed design work begins. Making informed collaborative decisions at this point helps your project to progress in the right direction.
Building on the initial design concept we move onto design development. At this stage the concept ideas are brought to life through good old fashioned 3D sketches, elevations and stunning CAD renders. We present look and feel boards, bespoke items, product samples for furnishings and fittings, all fully costed for approval.
At the implementation stage, we execute the delivery of the final design using our technical, manufacturing and design experience to make your vision a reality. This involves delivering a full drawing package on approval of the design, liaising with planners and listed building control where necessary, and overseeing the construction within the time frame. Finally, we hand over the finished branded space to your operations team.
Many of our clients make commercial pitches for competitive retail sites such as airports, railway stations and shopping centres. We have many years of experience of providing innovative and informative creative pitch documents for the tendering process, together with the design concept ‘Due diligence’ and ‘Financials’ have never looked so good. We also have a very high success rate in winning them.
Your brand and its design are critical to the success of your new enterprise. Our designers experienced in retail, hospitality and many other business sectors are ideally placed to understand your brand and what it should stand for. To achieve this we encourage a collaborative process, which ensures that the final brand encapsulates your business and what it stands for.
We have a team of graphic artists experienced in branded environments that can deliver professionally integrated graphics for every aspect of your project. Our expertise includes indoor and outdoor signage, wayfinding, brand messaging, menus and ticketing, point of sale materials, marketing collateral, and much, much more.
