Dubai Mall – UAE, Emaar

Dubai Mall – UAE, Emaar

The brief

Located in the heart of the prestigious Downtown Dubai is The Dubai Mall, the most-visited retail and entertainment destination, which welcomes more than 80 million visitors annually. The Dubai Mall has over 1,300 retail outlets, including two anchor department stores – Galeries Lafayette and Bloomi​ngdale’s – and over 200 food and beverage outlets.

 

3DWD was asked to design and deliver creative 3D hoardings which would make these temporary vacancies blend in nicely between the existing high-end tenants.

The Approach

In collaboration with our local partners Vindico, we surveyed the site and proposed relevant designs per space – in line with the leasing strategy.

 

These designs were further adapted to fit in terms of bulkhead design and branding per section of The Dubai Mall in which they were planned to be installed.

 

Each design was carefully redesigned so that it shows the actual depth, width and features of that particular unit.

The Outcome

Our 3D Window Dressing graphics were successfully installed and help to show the leasing vision for these temporary vacancies and simultaneously improve the overall experience.

 

The video and photos below give a good idea about the level of detail and quality that was delivered.

Gare Maritime – Brussels, Extensa

Gare Maritime – Brussels, Extensa

The brief

Gare Maritime is a pioneering hub combining unexpected retail, work and hang out experiences, located along the canal in the progressive city district of Tour & Taxis. It is a destination where all businesses are impact-conscious. A place where innovation and artistry open up debate and action, to impact society for the better and to accelerate the pace by leading the way.

 

As the bustling heart of the Tour & Taxis neighbourhood, Gare Maritime mixes and matches co-creation-based businesses, a food hall, bars, food markets, terraces and unconventional shops. This extraordinary concept is definitely catalysing the neighbourhood. New hotspots and events are fostering a pioneering energy that got people wondering… is Gare Maritime becoming Brussels’ new prime lifestyle destination? We definitely believe it is!

 

3DWD was asked to design and deliver creative 3D graphics which would create an opportunity for a selfie moment and/or show the potential of a temporary vacancy.

The Approach

Our team visited the site and learned about the uniqueness of the place, the characteristics of the units and the ambition level of the client.

 

Based on this visit we developed sketches to gauge the creative direction the client was looking to take and eventually turn these into print approval documents per unit.

The Outcome

The 3DWD graphics were successfully designed, produced and installed by our team and are being used by visitors as backdrops for their social media posts.

Multi-Property Holiday Activations, Bayer Properties

The brief

Bayer Properties currently owns and/or operates retail, urban and office properties totaling approximately 10 million square feet, such as The Summit in Birmingham, AL and The Summit in Reno, NV, The Pizitz Building in Birmingham, AL, and The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington, KY.

 

3DWD was asked to help develop a campaign,  using vacant storefronts , to create an interactive experience for shoppers during the holiday season.

The Approach

Our team developed 3 concepts for the 9 participating properties. These included a Winter Wonderland scene, a Santa Selfie scene and a Rudolph themed illustration scene.

 

For two of these concepts we developed a QR-code activated animation and game logic. By scanning the QR-code shoppers can play along and leave their e-mail address in order to be informed about the latest retail promotions.

The Outcome

The various graphics were installed across various states and with positive interactions on the various social media channels.

 

We hope to have helped make this (very different) 2020 holiday season a little nicer for those visiting these properties this December.

Galerija Belgrade at Belgrade Waterfront – Eagle Hills

Galerija Belgrade at Belgrade Waterfront – Eagle Hills

The brief

Galerija Belgrade, the biggest shopping, entertainment and gourmet destination in the region, has welcomed its first visitors within Belgrade Waterfront this autumn. The figures that speak of the grandeur of the mall situated on the Sava riverbank – 300,000 sqm in total, 93,000 sqm of leasable area or 3,600 parking spaces – are just a small part of what Galerija Belgrade will impress visitors with.

 

3DWD was asked to assist with creative solutions to activate some of the shops and restaurants that were not going to be ready to open in time for the Grand Opening event.

The Approach

The 3DWD team visited the property to analyze the situation and developed a design approach which differentiates between 5 different types of concepts. These concepts range from patterned designs to interactive experiences.

 

In the end, together with the client we picked which type of concept would be most suitable per space and after that we developed these concepts further into designs that can be executed on site at the property.

The Outcome

In a record time – we successfully designed and managed the execution of this impressive project. Working together with our local Serbian partner DOGA we ensured a high-quality delivery of the project in time for the Grand Opening event.

 

The result was a combination of 3D Faux Retail Graphics, Selfie Moments and 3D Illusion Rooms that blend in nicely with the existing tenant mix and have helped to create an environment that captivates the new clientele.

Stadtgalerie Schweinfurt – ECE

Stadtgalerie Schweinfurt – ECE

The brief

ECE Germany manages 195 Shopping Centers in 12 European countries. One of them is located in Schweinfurt, Bavaria. 3DWD was announced to be the creative agency for special vacant units within their Portfolio. For the Stadtgalerie Schweinfurt, we were challenged to develop a concept, that turns their vacant spaces into experience rooms and attracts clients to take selfies.

The Approach

3DWD came up with custom graphics. We installed 4 different concepts: two selfie designs as well as hoardings with a “backdrop” in order to access the vacancy. In addition, we added value by placing a seating area to one of the designs and a bookshelf to exchange books, an initiative that was realized in cooperation with a tenant.

The Outcome

3DWD designed, produced and installed all the designs for this project. Clients are sharing images on social media. The Center Management as well as the owner of the shopping center are very satisfied with the outcome.

The Client Feedback

We are happy to work with 3DWD as one of our creative and full-service-partner to activate vacant retail spaces. Their creativity and capacity to implement concepts internationally make them a reliable partner.  We have successfully worked with them on assets in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Italy.”

CityLife Milano – Sonae Sierra

CityLife Milano – Sonae Sierra

The brief

CityLife Shopping District in Milan, Italy requested 3DWD to develop an instagrammable moment for a temporary vacant space.

The Approach

3DWD came up with a creative animal 3D selfie – Graphic Concept. We created various 3D illusions rooms around the theme of animals, with the objective to make these look realistic and as though they would walk out of the façade.

 

To give an even more realistic look, our Design Team used the power of depths and a room to make it extra special.  Hashtags link to the centers social media platforms and will be visible on each picture spread to the world.

The Outcome

3DWD designed, adapted, and produced the designs for this request. Visitors started taking their selfies – and the vacant spaces turned into a special photo experience. A picture says more than a thousands words…

The Client Feedback

“ We are very satisfied of the job done by 3DWD with the design and production of the animal graphics to cover the two temporary empty units of CityLife Shopping District: a very good and joyfull installation that is  going to last shortly but will for sure contribute to ameliorate our visitors tour in the mall”

Emmapassage – Wereldhave

Emmapassage – Wereldhave

The brief

Emmapassage in Tilburg, the Netherlands is getting a complete make-over. A modern, light and open shopping destination with large shop facades at the heart of this city. While refurbishments are still happening in some units, the mall is open to the public. With interesting visuals we will create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and highlight the new look.

The Approach

The architecture incorporates urban green. We went with a botanical theme to further enhance this. The presence of a large bookstore next to the visuals inspired us to go for a romantic style, as if they were huge pages from an illustrated book. Pop-out elements give the illustrations extra depth.

The Outcome

From the opening until all units are ready, the large flowers and butterflies, with splashes of green, pink, yellow and blue, will make the location into the cheerful and friendly place we envisioned.
