Innovation starts with ideas. And ideas flourish in venues that avoid limitations. So in our annual call for big ideas, Retail Environments asks readers to think beyond budgets, resources, timelines, management commitment, team
buy-in, and other restrictive parameters of their everyday
work. To blue-sky it.
Your contributions this year run the gamut from materials
to new store concepts. Running through the ideas are a few
common themes: curation, flexibility, authenticity, thoughtful
use of assets, and lifestyle consideration.
So put on some Mozart and grab a bowl of dark chocolate
pieces, black currants, and almonds. You’ll want to stimulate
your brainpower as you peruse these blue-sky ideas. Maybe
one will inspire you to develop the next big thing in retail
environments and branding.
