Great design starts with collaboration. In our discovery session, we identify the vision, goals, parameters, budget, and timeline. Then we build a comprehensive plan to avoid surprises along the way. We'll talk about:

  • Budget and business goals
  • Artistic vision and aesthetics
  • Choosing the right materials
  • Eco-friendly design and environmental concerns
  • Compliance for regulations in your industry
  • Industry trends and innovations
  • Positive customer experience
  • Ergonomics accessible (ADA) design

Dream It Up

Based on the scope of your project, our creatives and project managers evaluate your needs to determine the optimal path for your retail display. For broad projects and programs requiring extensive design, we generate a scope of work (SOW). We prioritize speed and remove unnecessary process steps.

Our engineers produce top-level drawings to facilitate stakeholder approval. Based on our material recommendation, we build full 3D assemblies and generate final comprehensive engineering drawings and a parts list for approval. We leverage our broad domestic and overseas resources to support manufacturing for prototype production.

The prototype of your display or fixture is more than something you can hold in your hands before you commit: it's your vision coming to life. We bring decades of experience in wood, acrylic, corrugate, and metal production to develop quick-turn prototypes that range from very fast mockups to as close as possible to final production quality. Prototypes allow us to adjust to and identify potential issues with production, which minimizes your risk and maximizes your return on investment.
