Great ideas that you can take inspiration from.

Great Crate Ideas

Here at International Visual we love recycling and up cycling furniture and props to help make businesses look great. We find ourselves using crates on lots of occasions as they are so versatile, whether rustic & old, antique or vintage inspired new ones there are lots of great uses for them in the world of retail and display.

Here are just a few examples of how versatile they are, from being used as risers on tables, creating wall shelving units to hanging them from ceilings to create great visual displays.

Visual Merchandising Expertise for Farm Food Stores

Here at International Visual we spend our days making shops look good and getting them to perform better. We specialise in giving shops ‘make-overs’. Our input can make a visible difference in a very short timescale and often without the need for expensive shop fitting.


We source and supply any props and kit required and then get to work on improving your shop. We get our sleeves rolled up and physically work with you and your team to make the most of your store.


We have worked closely with several Farm Shops recently to create the right environment and promote their produce in the right way to get those extra sales. The photographs show the results and we take pride that we also get invited back because our ideas work!


Add visual theatre to your perimeter walls that reinforce your key messages and provide information, customers will read these whilst waiting to be served.



Add visual theatre to the exterior of your store by using visual props that make a statement and attract attention.


Use visual propping and related products to enhance a key product story like we have done here with this egg story.











See the gallery below for lots more inspirational photos of our work

Hands and Heads

Nice use of articulated hands in a boutique in Heathrow’s T5, notice how they have decorated one of the hands with the flower design from the front handbag.






Club Player Nice – Facade foliage

Im in Nice for a few days holiday, but am still always on the look out for inspiration and great things that catch my eye.

This fashion store caught my eye as they had covered the top part of the shopfront with plants, now i did think that it was a real living wall from afar, on closer inspection they had used artificial foliage, but it still looked good and it shows that if you dare to do something different you do attract people.

Simple tile idea for Jewellery from Paul Smith

I love simple ideas that look great, yesterday whilst travelling home via Heathrow T5 I popped into the Paul Smith store and saw this nifty idea using coloured tiles to display jewellery on.


Bright and colourful, they really show off the gold and silver jewellery which has been beautifully laid out. Also notice the lovely pricing system.

Layered Cube

This is a great new take on boring white cubes to highlight products.  


Window Graphic

Love this window graphic i saw in a delicatessen in Barcelona

This style of graphic would also be great for a news agents or grocery store.


Business card holder

I saw this idea in a cafe in Barcelona, its so simple and looks fab.

I love it when people think out of the box and use ordinary items for other uses.
