    Visual Merchandising and Store Styling

    With plans to build a new mega-showroom underway, Route 1 Motorsports knew they wanted LOOK Marketing’s Director of Visual Merchandising, Michele Chenard and her team to design the showroom and store displays for BRP powersports’ brands Can-Am Off Road and Can-Am Spyder as well as Sea-Doo watercraft.

    Grand Opening Showroom Tour

    When Route 1 Motorsports  officially opened the doors for business at to their new powersports dealership in Florida’s Brevard county – home to the iconic, history-making Space Coast,  we were honored to have been there to celebrate this momentous event with them. Over the course of the evening, we captured a few photos of the showroom vignettes and product displays designed and styled by LOOK Marketing’s award-winning Visual Merchandising team.

All components from color, spacing, pattern and texture work harmoniously together to create a display that is an attention-getter and money maker.

    Smart store design optimizes every inch of available display space which in turn increases the amount for revenue making space. LOOK’s visual merchandising team combined the science of retail design with their artful eye for creating beautiful environments, and designed this revenue generating series of display and merchandise vignettes that are guaranteed sales makers.

    It’s been a privilege to work with our friends at Route 1 Motorsports and contribute to their business success. We’ve enjoyed seeing their journey marking major milestones including the press event at the ground breaking, sharing the construction progress via social video  and finally seeing it all come together at the grand opening festivities.

  • On Location: Taking Social Media on the Road

    Leveraging Events: Social Media Content Strategy

    The Event

    It’s one of the most prestigious professional bass fishing tournaments in the world, the Fishing League Worldwide’s Forrest Wood Cup.  Our client Evinrude had a few of their pro-anglers vying for top spots in this world championship fishing tournament that took place in August 2017. Evinrude also planned on offering test rides during this heavily attended multi-day event in Lake Murray, South Carolina.

    The Social Strategy

    Capturing and publishing visual content from Evinrude attended fishing tournaments was one of several tactics based on our social media strategy to deliver informative and entertaining magazine-like experiences across Evinrude’s various social channels.

    Social Media Event Coverage

    So we packed our cameras, smart phones and laptops, and made our way to Lake Murray to bring the tournament experience to Evinrude’s 145,000 social fans on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

    Hundreds of photos were taken – including some cool 360-degree shots, along with several hours of video footage recorded.  Many of the tournament photos were published to albums and collections on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The event-based visual content was well received by fans.

    Some of the fan favorites (and ours, too!) from the event are shown below. It’s easy to see why the fans enjoyed these images – they express authentic, memorable moments and exude a friendly warmth that leaves you with a smile. Kind of like the pictures you’d take yourself and share with your friends.
