    Ripple Group Pop Up Shop Irn Bru Glasgow Merchant City

    Cleland McIver

    Multi Functional Showroom

    Ripple and Cleland McIver have worked together for several years, and on this occasion our client had a vision to create their new Showroom.

     

    The final solution was based on achieving a ‘Glamdustrial’ look and feel; a contemporary industrial style using blackened steel and American Walnut timber to contrast with the soft furnishing fabrics and their varied colours and textures.

    With thoughtfully designed fittings and accessories, the area can be easily adapted to present the themed ranges from the extensive product offering.

    Ripple Group Children’s Clothing Display Boots Mini club

    Boots Mini Club

    Children's Clothing Display

    Boots Mini Club team challenged Ripple to develop a new flexible free-standing children’s clothing display end to replace the tired fixtures which needed refreshing. The challenge here was to design a unit which fell within a strict 3D footprint but also optimised the number of product facings to achieve maximum display possibilities. Taking it from a “blank canvas”, we first worked up some concept options before homing in on the preferred one – this went through several iterations of size, product facings and colour finishes before going to prototype and then roll out.

    Ripple Group Tesco Post office Counters Display

    Tesco

    Post Office Retail Counters

    Ripple are proud to have been involved with the development of Post Office retail counters for Tesco Express stores following an initial trial.

    The project involved the development of a counter which offered both Tesco retail and Post Office operations in the smallest possible footprint. Prototyping followed an extensive design consultation process which involved ergonomic considerations from both Tesco and Post Office, from both the perspective of the customer experience and that of the staff operations.

    All the items of IT equipment for both operations required modelling so that the space within the counter could be used in the most optimised way.

    Small Store Format

    The project followed the success of the small format ‘Boutique’ High Street stores, the teams at Ripple and Topps worked closely to develop a larger size format (around 200 to 300 m²). The inaugural store was Knutsford (next to the McLaren dealership) closely followed by Wilmslow. The Knutsford store staff namely Mike, Lee, Jo and Rachel had all previously worked in the traditional format stores and commented how much the customers loved this new environment which achieved sales beyond all expectations from the offset.

    Ripple Group Marshalls Displays

    Marshalls

    Paving & Driveway Display Development

    Following an in-depth process involving research, consultation, team breakthrough sessions and creative input, the result was outstanding. It provided inspiration, clarity of the product offer and great flexibility whilst being updatable, and future proof.

    A further challenge was to make some of the elements of the displays ‘indoor/outdoor compatible’ and to suit the nature of the product the equipment is robust, heavy duty and weatherproof, performing in a spectrum of environments.
