I haven't found many retail fit-out/design specific blogs in my net travels. Perhaps it's a niche but given the number of shops, and potential other uses for shop fittings, I think there is an audience.That's why I was pleased to find Tony's retail fixture blog today. If you're interested in retail or storage solutions have a browse, I've subscribed.
This blog is a pictorial inventory of unique or otherwise interesting small-scale fixtures seen across the entire range of retailing. Just as a city-scape is built up of individual bricks, beams and boards, so a store is constructed of many small-scale fixtures that combine to help create the selling-floor environment.
Many of these small elements are unsung heros in creating an effective, functional, appealing merchandising space for goods. Because of the wide-ranging creativity of designers, similar display problems are often solved in unique ways. This site attempts to document these varying solutions … and provide a source of ideas and inspiration for additional new solutions.
The site is maintained by the Tony Kadysewski, Marketing Communications Manager of Trion Industries, Inc., but is meant to be totally independent, informational, and non-promotional. It is resource for Trion staff as well as others interested in retail and point-of-purchase fixtures.
