If you’re a shop-owner killer windows are worth their weight in gold. After all, competition on the high street has never been fiercer and we haven’t even mentioned the impact that online retailers are having.

Think of your window displays as your first opportunity to make a positive impression. If they’re not working hard for you at all times, you’re definitely missing a trick (and potentially losing customers).  The bottom line is that effective window displays are extremely powerful and if you get them right, you can literally stop people in their tracks!

Here at Made You Look! we specialise in helping individuals and businesses with their visual retailing, specifically their visual displays and styling. We aim to take their shop window designs and interior displays to the next level – especially the first level with the basics and just where to start for those who are complete novices.

Our range of presentations, seminars and workshops will teach you all the skills you need to transform your visual displays which in turn will increase sales and move your business forward.  What we offer isn’t the usual kind of corporate training you find as we’ve been there and possess the tee shirts – we know what works and what doesn’t either! Our workshops are designed to be fun, inspirational and as personal as possible to the people attending without any loss of focus or impact.

Sound good? Find out more about our retail design services and what we do now.

However if you can’t see the perfect option for your business, get in touch and we’ll tailor something just for you.

Perfect for groups!
