Experience design is essential to modern life. Richer and more empowering than traditional physical and digital environments, optimized experiences take even the most routine human/media interactions, and turn them into something captivating. And that’s true whether they take place in the digital realm, in physical settings or combinations of the two.

“We believe unique and unexpected consumer experiences are the best way to capture the eyes of a fast-moving audience. The explorations that take place within the walls of retail innovation labs transform retail places into those kinds of desired destinations. Yes, the collaboration essential to idea-generation takes place. But perhaps more importantly, the gaps between those ideas and real-world implementation are closed.”
