DESIGNCREATING BESPOKE SPACES

The colours, shapes, graphics and lights of your bespoke exhibition stand are craftly combined by our skilled designers to create unique environments that deliver on your vision. Advances in computer simulation allow us, as exhibition stand contractors, to prepare insightful designs driven by needs, purpose and style before any wood is cut or expense made. Our design team is normally involved with:

  • Preparing initial concept designs by interpreting customer's brief or from an initial conversation
  • Generating photo realistic 3D renderings of your bespoke exhibition stand to aid the decision-making process
  • Amending designs for which quotes have been accepted and require further fine tuning to capture "the perfect vision"
  • Providing environment walkthroughs and advise on design form and function: ensuring that spaces are practical, useful as well as beautiful
  • Producing technical drawings for exhibition organisers
  • Modifying and adapting any provided artwork to make it fit-for-purpose
