Need help with your shop window display?
Check out our Industry Insiders, John Abbate & Jonathan Berlin.
They are the guru’s of the industry who have shared some of their wisdom with us.
“Window display is an art so the basic rules of proportion, composition, colour and focus apply at the basic level. Unlike a painting or photo though, they are 3 dimensional and seen from different angles, the mover is walking past so this must be considered. But windows are much more than this. They are a sales, marketing and brand building tool. It is the face of the brand as much as the marketing and digital identity are.”

“When a consumer walks past a shop window they need to be drawn into it. It needs to reflect the retailers’ brand and whatever message they are trying to portray. It needs to tell a story or trigger a thought in the consumers mind. Whether that be something dramatic or something quite simple, it needs to set a tone for the consumer to understand.”
