Olympia, London – Design consultancy Dalziel + Pow impressed visitors to London’s flagship retail design and marketing event, the Retail Design Expo, with its interactive display using conductive ink.
The stand featured simple, cartoonish images that told the story of the agency’s inception, applied to a neutral wooden backdrop that served as the perfect foil to the lively animation. When visitors placed their hands on or touched certain images they completed the electric circuit, causing the board to come to life. ‘As we move to online and more digital shopping experiences, retailers are increasingly looking at ways to bring customers [into their spaces] and engage them,’ says Dalziel + Pow head of digital Ross Phillips. ‘We believe part of that is being more playful, allowing customers to play with brands in a way that is not focused on sales.’
