Retail, Hospitality and Home
Our people want to be regarded as individuals, more than simply customers. Similarly, homes, shops and hotels want to see their individuality expressed. Conversations with for example Moda started months befor our first major install in Edinburgh, regarding their plans to develop new ideas about living identity, image, placement context and commercial edge. Over the years we’ve worked with them on a number of projects.
