On the Launch of FixturesCloseUp
“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“)
About FixturesCloseUp in a Nutshell
Retail fixture and point-of-purchase display reviews and photos, with research capabilities to aid in store outfitting and visual merchandising.
On the Goal of FixturesCloseUp Posts
This site is a 15,000+ post 35,000+ image pictorial inventory of unique or otherwise interesting small-scale fixtures, displays, and visual merchandising strategies 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 small-scale outfitting and merchandising that combines to help create the selling-floor environment. Many of these small elements are unsung heroes in creating an effective, functional, appealing space for merchandising 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 or new applications of existing fixtures. FixturesCloseUp targets a “purer” fixture readership than that of old-guard publications like Design:Retail, VMSD, and Shop! Retail Environments, bypassing “waste circulation” to flooring, lighting, HVAC, and other non-fixture sectors or retail interest.
