On the Launch of This Blog
“This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.” (Navin R. Johnson aka Steve Martin in the movie “The Jerk“)
FixturesCloseUp in a Nutshell
Over 9,000 small-scale Retail fixture and point-of-purchase display reviews and 32,000 photos, with research capabilities to aid in store outfitting and visual merchandising.
On the Goal of These Posts
FixturesCloseUp is a pictorial inventory of unique and 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. These small elements are unsung heroes 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. FixturesCloseUp documents these varying solutions … and provides a source of ideas and inspiration for additional new solutions or new applications of existing fixtures. FixturesCloseUp targets a “purer” fixture readership than that of old-guard publications like Design:Retail and VMSD, eliminating “waste circulation” to flooring, lighting, HVAC, and other non-fixture sectors.
