Ted baker has always had a quirky way of communication with its customers, a little bit english eccentric and always with a touch of humour.
This summer scheme i saw at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 store is no exception, to me it looks like its a modern spin on the traditional British seaside summer holiday postcards of the 1950s & 60s , but no bawdy seaside humour just Tedisums.
Fortnum and Mason have struck upon a neat idea to increase sales in their Heathrow Terminal 5 boutique store.
They have just started selling mini hampers to take onto flights, quite clever as airlines don’t have the best reputation for their in flight cuisine.
They are using the tagline “Upgrade your In – Flight dinning”
Offering a lovely mini hamper which can be used again
Customers can choose from 5 menus, all stored in a fridge just inside the entrance.
Although i knew the quality would be good i thought the portions may be light, but having looked i was quite surprised by the amount of food they give you.
This is a great example of coming up with an idea for their captured shopper.
We’re pretty big fans of this here planet we call home. That’s why, this Earth Day, our window displays are bringing attention to an important source of renewable energy: wind, a pollution-free power source that stores up electricity and saves on water. Our display director, Erika, transformed the sensory delight of a soft breeze into abstract compositions created from fabric, paper and window screening. “I love the femininity of these displays,” she said. “There are soft and subdued blues, beautiful pleats and undulating shapes. It’s the kind of delicate breeze that causes leaves to flutter, flowers to cling to their petals and water to dance along surfaces.”

After our successful Christmas store set up for the Highgrove estate store, we were asked back to give the store a layout and merchandising refresh for spring.
Here are a few other photos of the completed store.
We used lots of apple crates to give height on fixtures and for holding large amounts of products under fixtures. They are very versatile and can be used in many ways. If you would like to buy apple crates from us please contact email@example.com
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.
Another great find from the RDE [Retail Design Exhibition] in London, this time this company sells a liquid that when set looks exactly like concrete, it can be painted on to almost any type of surface and comes in lots of colours. It mainly been marketed to the house design industry but it could be used in so many ways in retail design and for visual merchandising design.
Design concrete is not well known in the UK, but is very popular in France, where it is known as béton ciré. It was first created for the US navy about 30 years ago. Since then, it has been developed to provide a wide range of colours for domestic and industrial uses.
Design concrete is a mixture of Portland cement, silica sand, polymer resins, with natural pigment added to provide colour. It is different to polished concrete, which is a traditional concrete that is merely polished. Design concrete, on the other hand, is applied in the same way as plaster and is only 2mm thick.
The finished product is hard-wearing, flexible, seamless, versatile, with a tactile finish and is resistant to abrasion and staining. It is waterproof and can be applied to interiors (floors, walls, worktops, kitchens, bathrooms etc) as well as exteriors – even for swimming pools.
Colours and the finish can be tailored to suit any designs.

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.
Liberty have launched a new range of fabrics with inspiration coming from the historical world of miniature interiors, they have called it the Chesham Cabinet Collection.
They always have a challenge on their hands as their windows are very low height wise but they have managed to create some really interesting and inspirational schemes in them.
I especially love the cabinet they have used with room settings inside all the spaces.
