The demands of modern retail and store fixture manufacturing come together to create designs that cleverly intertwine art, architecture, and technology into the retail space and the displays that hold merchandise. Display design and finishing involves the combining of mixed media and special effects more than at any other time in store fixture manufacturing history. Retailers depend on strong design to give them a competitive edge. Creating store fixtures in unusual sizes, shapes, finishes, and layout, provide visual impacts and can effectively mold consumer impressions.
