Outside The Box
This is where creativity hits a new high for us. This is when you have that little ingenious idea and you want to pilot something new. You have a “feel for it” and can see it in your mind but you need someone to help make it happen. Many times these little retail design ideas are small versions of your store front operations, a kiosk, a miniature version of what you do and have done successfully. An opportunity is at hand and you can go there but you need to truly create something unique in a small package.
We have worked on some creative retail design projects of this nature and would love to help you on your next adventure. These projects have ranged in size from 10 square feet to 200 square feet. They have been in the front of retail big boxes, corporate lobbies, gondola store shelving units, display fixtures, custom millwork, or just in the middle of another store. Wherever it is, the idea is the same, build our branded storefront out in micro space and make it functional and attractive. So, if this is something you are tasked with executing, we can assist. Please look at a few examples of some unique spaces.
About Jackson Hewitt
Jackson Hewitt approached us to assist them in a redesign of their kiosk which was launched to their franchisee family but was riddled with issues of damage, adaptability, and shelf life. They liked their footprint but needed a better and improved model to sustain their business model of operating every year in an open format and free space in front of Walmart during the tax season.
The design was created utilizing an exhibit approach. It was conceptually developed and prototyped in China, then we implemented their design. This involved the entire overseas production, shipping, logistics for delivery across the U.S., central warehousing, and graphics production. This led to the design and creation of a small, 50 lb. ancillary podium–style kiosk. This design allowed tax preparers to quickly break down, relocate and set up the kiosk, as needed.
We were already working with Walmart to redesign and build their Walmart Money Centers when they asked if we could create a new Money Center within the same space as four check out lanes. They were preparing to open a new store in Phoenix, AZ and they asked if we could finish the project in time for the store’s grand opening, which was in four weeks! Of course, we said “Yes”, and we “Did”!
The approach was to take out 4 check out lanes and build a freestanding design while deploying the same customized fixtures, graphics and point of sale counter created for the Walmart Money Center utilizing existing store gondolas. Together we accomplished the design and installation and from there launched many more across the country.
Bluebird American Express by Walmart
Walmart and American Express wanted to pilot a new program called Bluebird. They wanted a kiosk that could easily be set–up, relocatable, well branded and functional for sales teams to operate out of and promote Bluebird.
After piloting in Bentonville, it was launched, and this is the first site installed at American Express in AZ.
Custom Ink Inside Michael’s
Our client, Custom Ink, approached us with a unique opportunity in a retailer in which we had never built in –Michael’s. They were working on a new partnership and wanted to launch and test a kiosk inside of Michael’s. Ultimately, the kiosks were to be in an aisle utilizing a single side of five gondolas and an end cap. The design was to bring their storefront design into this kiosk and deliver the same brand experience with similar functionality. Six stores were identified for the pilot, the design was completed, and the build out for all was less than two weeks.
