Visualising instore concept designs

A long-standing client recently approached the Pix team to join forces for a high-status pitch
merchandise_caps_visual_MUFC


Our creative CGI department worked alongside Cardinal to create high quality visuals for the Manchester United store refit. The high standard visuals gave the national company a strong portfolio to present, establishing a competitive edge for the firm.

CGI is a great tool to test and develop product without the added expense of singular manufacture. Combinations are limitless testing material selection, product design and aesthetic details. Our in house designers developed the spatial design factoring in multi-use point of sale, architectural restrictions and how the space would visually look from a distance.

We think the final refit result are a great success, why not check out our architecture page on our new look website to see how our renders can help strengthen client pitches and presentations.

The community based initiative invited local youth clubs to say what a new team kit would mean to them. The lucky winners also have the privilege of their junior grass root stars of the future to visit their local team and meet the current star players.

The mammoth coordination is ongoing, with professional looking junior teams generating great publicity content which is being used across multiple social media platforms.

Trending-Island: the place to be seen in 2017

black_marble_island_shaker_kitchen

Statement islands will feature heavily in 2017, this is supported by worktop technologies and the wide array of new worktop finishes entering the market. Mixing is the name of the game: texture, thickness, height and colour - anything goes. Open storage features are also a must in your island design, stretch your creativity but keep it practical.

Use product creatively
kitchen_island_unusual

A split level island is a clever way to reduce the appearance of bulk without reducing worktop space. It’s also a nice way of softening the transition from kitchen to a dining/living space.

Get creative with lighting and give your island that flouting feeling, here we’ve paired it with a universal sliding doors system that adds real drama as well as creative display.

Contrast finishes
mixed_facia_kitchen

Mixing Worktop textures create a real statement contrasting not only finishes but thinness too, complimenting display features and splashbacks both play a big part in this look.

Make a feature with contrasting kitchen fascias, you need to be bold to make a statement it’s not the time to play safe…sometime more is more!
